At new moon and full moon, the earth, moon and sun lie on one axis, which means that the attractive forces of the moon and sun add up and the resulting flood mountain becomes higher. This results in a higher high tide and a lower low tide.
If the sun, earth and moon are at right angles to each other, the forces of attraction partially cancel each other out. This creates neap tides, which are characterised by a lower high water and a less receding low water.
Normally rising high water and normally receding low water.
