Type
Crossword
Description

An incoming tidal flow is known as a flood current or flood tide.
a long high sea wave caused by an earthquake, submarine landslide, or other disturbance.
the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travels up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay's current.
occur in conjunction with the rise and fall of the tide. The vertical motion of the tides near the shore causes the water to move horizontally.
the vertical difference between the high tide and the succeeding low tide.
a partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea.
a sudden powerful forward or upward movement, especially by a crowd or by a natural force such as the waves or tide.
a sudden and violent shaking of the ground, sometimes causing great destruction, as a result of movements within the earth's crust or volcanic action.
an elongate depression in the seafloor that is characteristically shallower, shorter, narrower, and topographically gentler than oceanic trenches.
a tidal current that moves toward a shore or up a tidal river.
