Definition of lunitidal in English:



  • Denoting the interval between the time at which the moon crosses a meridian and the time of high tide at that meridian.

    • ‘We can find the lunitidal interval, and the establishment of the port by these observations.’
    • ‘The tide graph indicates tidal movement based on the Moon's transit over the meridian and the lunitidal interval.’
    • ‘These values should be sufficient information for watches that use the lunitidal interval to indicate high and low waters.’
    • ‘I just got one, and in order for it to show the correct tidal movements, I have to input the lunitidal interval.’
    • ‘Tidal movements are displayed graphically based on your current latitude and longitude, and the lunitidal interval.’
