Why does high tide occur?
Tides occur when the Moon (and the Sun to a point) is in a specific alignment with Earth. Its gravitational pull on the Earth, though insignificant, pulls free-floating water on the Earth's surface, creating the low and high tides. Spring tides occur when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are on the same imaginary line, accentuating tides. Neap tides occur when they are perpendicular to one another, creating lower high tides and higher low tides.
