15 3.5 TW is the tidal power dissipated by the oceans 3.4 TW is the average total (gas, electricity, etc.) power consumption in US in TW is the tidal power used by oceans to mix and maintain stratification TW is the power induced by OVW stresses in the oceans ( 90% are dissipated in the upper 100m )

19 The difference between model and observed MSL is too big to be real. It corresponds to a change in Earth’s oblateness which is incompatible with the observed range of LOD variations. cm model forced by QuikSCAT vectors (CORE2): courtesy of Dr. Large (NCAR), OVWST, 2008 mean Sea Level simulated by OGCM forced by QuikSCAT vectors relative to observed MSL 14.7 days apart New Moon in North around June solstice Full Moon In South in June-July * *
