    Answer: Spring Tide

    Tide caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun together in the same direction is called Spring Tide.
    The tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun on the Earth’s oceans.
    The Word “Tide” is a generic term used to define the alternating rise and fall in Sea level with respect to the land, produced by the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun.

    • The same tidal forces that cause tides in the oceans affect the solid Earth causing it to change shape by a few inches.
    • There are typically two spring tides and two neap tides each month.
    • Local factors such as weather can also affect the tides.

    Spring Tide occurs when the Sun and the Moon are aligned to combine for the largest tidal range of the highest high tide and the lowest low tide. We can say “Spring tides occur during the full moon and the new moon.”
    When the sun, moon and the earth all line up at new or full moon then we get the highest tides which are called ‘Spring tides. In fact it takes a bit of time for the enormous mass of water to move, so the spring tide will actually occur a couple of days after the new (full) moon,

    RE: Tide by Gravitational Pull of Moon & Sun Together

    Neap Tide is when the tidal range is at its smallest. This occurs during the first and third quarters of the Moon. We can say ” Neap tides occurs during quarter moons.”
    When the moon is the first or third quarter then the moon and sun are exerting forces from two different directions and the overall  effect on the water is less, so the high tides are lower than average and the low tides are higher than the average and we call these low tides Neap Tide.
