There is a great contrast in tides between here and,say, Broome further north, which experiences some of the largest tidal variations in the world. Our tidal variation is only about a metre. Nobody I have asked in this "neck of the woods" has been able to give me a meaningful explanation.Perhaps you are the guys (and gals) that can. An interesting question, don't you think? Thank you.

Re: Why does the Indian Ocean at Perth have such a small tidal variation.
