English term or phrase: king tide
Una king tide, ovvero:

A King Tide is a non-scientific term people often use to describe exceptionally high tides. Tides are long-period waves that roll around the planet as the ocean is "pulled" back and forth by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun as these bodies interact with the Earth in their monthly and yearly orbits.

Non equivale a una marea di equinozio, vero?

Qualcuno di competente nel settore saprebbe dirmi se esiste un traducente o se è meglio lasciarla in inglese?

king tide/alta marea eccezionale

Non avendo altro contesto, se si trattasse di una specie di glossario dove segue la definizione lascerei in inglese ma dipenderebbe anche dal tipo di glossario.

Comunque si tratta di alte maree eccezionali. A Miami ad esempio avvengono regolarmente
