What is a spring tide?



  1. 0 Votes

    A spring tide occurs when the moon is full or new. This means the moon, the sun, and the Earth are aligned, leading to a combined gravitational pull and a stronger tide. So, there are higher high tides and lower low tides during spring tide. The opposite would be neap tides, where gravitational pull is split between the moon and the sun, resulting in less difference between high and low tides.
