Retard of the tide
, or Age of the tide
, the interval
between the transit of the moon at which a tide originates
and the appearance of the tide itself. It is found, in
general, that any particular tide is not principally due
to the moon's transit immediately proceeding, but to a
transit which has occured some time before, and which is
said to correspond to it. The retard of the tide is thus
distinguished from the lunitidal interval. See under
