Definition:

A tidal stream (or tidal current) is an alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide caused by tide-producing forces. (IHO Dictionary, S-32, 5th Edition, 1169)

Tidal stream rates over time may be approximated by a series of rate values given at regular time intervals, starting from a specified moment in time.
