Does this make sense?

The occurrence of tidal waves on Planet Earth is the development of the water, whether it is a high tide or low tide, from gravitational reaction from the moon. Tidal changes occur occasionally from sea level disturbances from storms or natural disasters.

Does this make sense? Not really. But here are some tips.


"The occurance of tidal waves on Planet Earth is the development of the water ..."


First, I think you are meaning to write about tides. Tidal waves are something else entirely. Tidal waves are more properly called a "tsunami" -- meaning a large wave cuased by offshore seismic activitity -- or "tidal bores" that result from an incoming tide being forced up a river or fijord.


Second, I don't think "development" is the right word choice. Perhaps:

"Tides on Earth are caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon."


Third: Planet Earth is a bit redundant and wordy. Earth will suffice.


I hope this helps.
