How often do tides occur on the Texas coast?
because an ocean tide refers to the cyclic rise and fall of seawater.these tides are caused by variations in gravatational attraction between the Earth's ,moon and the sun ,in geometric relationship with locations on the Earth's surface.the reason that tides are periodic is due mostly to Earth's rotation being cyclical.

What is the difference between neap tides and spring tides?
Spring tides are formed by the constructive interference of bulges created by the moon and sun. Spring tides occur when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are aligned. Neap tides are formed by the destructive interference of bulges created by the moon and sun. Neap tides occur when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align to make a right angle. Spring tides are therefore larger than neap tides, new moons and full moons occur in the spring tide but the 1st qauter of the moon and 3rd quarter of the moon occur in neap tides... tupac

What is the difference between a spring tide and a neap tide?
The difference between a spring tide and a neap tide is: Spring Tides When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and sun are combined. At these times, the high tides are very high and the low tides are very low. This is known as a spring high tide. Spring tides are especially strong tides (they do not have anything to do with the season Spring). They occur when the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon are in a line. The gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun both contribute to the tides. Spring tides occur during the full moon and the new moon. Neap Tides During the moon's quarter phases the sun and moon work at right angles, causing the bulges to cancel each other. The result is a smaller difference between high and low tides and is known as a neap tide. Neap tides are especially weak tides. They occur when the gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun are perpendicular to one another (with respect to the Earth). Neap tides occur during quarter moons.
