The lowest of the tides and opposite a spring tide in the tidal system. Tides flow in cycles that follow the full moon. Neap tides are unusually low tides at high tide and unusually high tides at low tide (the height difference is small). Spring tides are unusually high high tides and unusually low low tides (the height difference is high) approximately a two weeks cycle between Spring and Neap tides.
