Neap tide

The tides with the smallest tidal range during the monthly tidal cycle. They occur when the tidal bulges from the sun and the moon are not in phase. In these conditions, the gravitational force of the sun and the moon work against each other resulting is relatively small tidal ranges.  They occur at the moon's quarter phases, halfway between new and full.
