GRIB:
A velocity is a vector quantity. "Eastward" indicates a vector component which is positive when directed eastward (negative westward). Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun, and the rotation of the Earth. This rise in water level is accompanied by a horizontal movement of water called the tidal current.
