Tides can be predicted far in advance and with a high degree of accuracy. Tides are forced by the orbital relationships between the Earth, the moon and the Sun. These relationships are very well understood and the position of the celestial bodies can be forecast very accurately into the future.

What is slack water after high tide?

Slack water is a short period in a body of tidal water when the water is completely unstressed, and there is no movement either way in the tidal stream, and which occurs before the direction of the tidal stream reverses.

How long does the tide stay high before it turns?

Because the Earth rotates through two tidal “bulges” every lunar day, coastal areas experience two high and two low tides every 24 hours and 50 minutes. High tides occur 12 hours and 25 minutes apart. It takes six hours and 12.5 minutes for the water at the shore to go from high to low, or from low to high.

How do you know if its a slack tide?

The moment when the tide turns and changes direction, the current ceases and also changes direction. This moment of no current is called slack tide or slack current. You can have a high slack when the tide reaches its maximum height or a low slack when the tide reaches its lowest height.
