How to explain the impact of this “super moon” on tides? When this happens, the gravitational forces of the sun and moon on Earth create unusual tidal coefficients, known as “living water.
It is noted that this spectacular low tide is also due to the high atmospheric pressure, cold weather and lack of precipitation that normally feeds the rivers.
However, the main Venice Canal has remained open, allowing all bus boats to converge on one of the city’s only remaining routes.
Water levels have decreased by more than 60 centimetres in some parts of the city.
