Mean high water spring
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Mean high water springs)
The mean high water spring is the highest level that spring tides reach on the average over a period of time (often 19 years). This level is generally close to being the "high water mark" where debris accumulates on the shore annually.
