The effect of Full Moon for the river.

It’s a beautiful full moon tonight.

One local man told me an interesting thing which happens at the Noosa River at full moon. The Noosa River is situated at Noosa, QLD, Australia and it enters the Pacific Ocean.

The difference between high tide and low tide becomes the biggest at full moon.(It also happens at new moon.) It’s called the spring tide.

During high tide in the spring tide, a large amount of seawater flows into the Noosa River. Seawater pushes freshwater upstream and the river becomes full of seawater. At low tide, seawater takes sediment together to the sea and then the river gets clean and clear.

I’m not sure the detail of this natural process. But I’m sure the great Mother Nature alway shows us her natural wisdom.
