Are spring tides more common during the spring? Explain

No, spring tides have nothing to do with the season "Spring".

Can someone please explain this to me more clearly, thanks

  • Science -

    Spring tides are not named from the season but from "spring forward". This occurs twice each month, when the moon is full and new.

    More info would be appreciated. I don't mind links, but if you could post some info on here, then I'd be grateful, thanks
