Reversing tidal current:

A tidal current that flows alternately in approximately opposite directions with a SLACK WATER at each reversal of direction. Currents of this type usually occur in rivers and straits where the direction of flow is more or less restricted to certain CHANNELS. When the movement is towards the shore, the current is said to be flooding, and when in the opposite direction it is said to be ebbing.
