The average suspended sediment concentrations at Coraki during the spring and neap tide
When this condition exists, the tides are called neap tides
, a Saxon term related to the Germanic word "knippen", to pinch, meaning that they are reduced in size.

Paired t tests (Zar 1984) were used to compare trip lengths of individual birds and during spring and neap tide
A neap tide
happens twice a month when gravitational forces of sun and moon cancel each other out, generating the lowest rise and fall of the tidal levels.
During neap tides
, currents were similar except that the magnitudes of the measured parameters were lower.
He warned fish growers about another neap tide
It is also true that all tides equal to or greater than the neap tide
will attain a certain common level.
The drift currents from the incoming waves transport sediments in a south westerly direction, creating the incipient barrier after breaking down the two-layered flow during the spring and neap tides
(Chawla et al.
The available ocean data are both quantitative and qualitative pertaining to flood and ebb during spring and neap tides
[11, 12, 14, 15].
This week they are in Fort William, waiting for the neap tides
– the quieter, low tides – before they negotiate the Sound of Jura, which can be treacherous to attempt in a dangerous spring tide.
I understand that those who have done the sums have proposed an array of turbines with a power capacity of 8,000MW, and that after allowing for the 4m range of twice-a-month neap tides
, those machines would generate enough energy to give a load factor of 22%.
