Ebb Tide: Time during the tidal period when the water level in the sea is falling. It means the stage between high tide and low tide throughout which water flows absent from the shore. The period between high water and the succeeding low water. One high tide always faces the moon, while the other faces away from it. Between these high tides are areas of lower water levels—low tides. The flow of water from high tide to low tide is called an ebb tide.
Ebb tide, seaward flow in estuaries or tidal rivers throughout a tidal stage of lowering water intensity. The overturn stream, happening throughout rising tides, is called the flood tide. Tides are the standard rise and fall of the sea due to the gravitational hold of the moon and the sun on the Earth. As storms move toward seashore, the tide level is very significant, as a high tide will likely consequence in a larger possibility of coastal flooding. Higher tidal ranges are called spring tides and lower tidal ranges are called neap tides. When the moon and sun are lined up instantly with the earth, the gravity from both acts mutually and creates spring tides. When the sun and moon are at right angles to each other, the gravity from both works at right angles, producing neap tides.
