About the resource

To celebrate teaching and research excellence at this institution, and the recent opening of the Marine Centre Wales building, a short film was produced in collaboration with CADARN on “The Tides of the Menai Strait”.

Our film shows stunning time-lapse footage of the tides in the Menai Strait over 24 hours. We use animation to show how the tides work – as Sir Issac Newton envisaged them over 300 years ago. Finally, we demonstrate how important the tides are on a global scale, by using a simple laboratory experiment.
