What is the relationship between the sun,moon and the tides
The result is a smaller difference between high and low tides and is known as a neap tide. Neap tidesare 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.
