月球不穩定的軌道,增加洪水風險

The most obvious effect the Moon has on the Earth can be seen in the ocean tides. As the Earth rotates each day, the Moon’s gravity pulls the water on the nearest side of Earth towards it, creating a bulge. The sea bulges on the opposite side too due to centrifugal force caused by the Earth’s rotation. The Earth rotates beneath these watery bulges, resulting in the two high tides and two low tides we see each day. (節錄至Katherine Latham文章)

月球交點週期,威脅沿海生態

The lunar nodal cycle might be set to raise many challenges for humans, but for wildlife in coastal ecosystems it could be an existential threat. When the nodal cycle is at its peak, the high tides flood mosquito habitat further landward. Typically, there are fewer mosquitoes at the peak of the cycle. It’s not just mosquitos that are affected — their abundance is a proxy for the welfare of numerous other species. (節錄至Katherine Latham文章)
