Abstract The Moon migrated to cm over a characteristic time r / v = 10  Gyr by tidal interaction with Earth’s oceans at a present velocity of v = 3.8  cm yr − 1 . We model global dissipation to cover the entire history over the past 4.52  Gyr. We use scaling and numerical integration to model the off-resonance tidal interactions at relatively short tidal periods in the past to a near-resonance state at present. The global properties of the complex spatio-temporal dynamics and dissipation in… Expand
