“There are annul solar declinational tides and 27.32 day lunar declinational tides that help to drive the meridional circulation in the deep ocean as well as lunar declinational tides in the atmosphere that generate the winds mentioned in this paper, that reflects what I said here.

Gravitational tides …& thermal tides. Don’t forget about semi-annual insolation tides in the atmosphere. This stands out to me as a key piece of the picture that you never emphasize …even if you are aware.

[I just thought that most people were aware of the solar declinational tides and the seasonal shifts, but I will include more of these details I thought obvious in the future.]
