How to Determine the Height of Tide - 14221_187
Tide Tables Layout Tide  Tables  are  published  annually  by  the  National  Oceanic  and Atmospheric  Administration.  They  are  published  in  four  volumes: Europe  and  West  Coast  of  Africa  (including  the  Mediterranean  Sea); East  Coast  of  North  and  South  America  (including  Greenland);  West Coast  of  North  and  South  America  (including  the  Hawaiian  Islands); Central  and  Western  Pacific  Ocean  and  Indian  Ocean. The  Tide  Tables  contain  seven  tables;  each  are  briefly  explained  below: Table  1  contains  the  predicted  times  and  heights  of  high  and  low  waters for  each  day  of  the  year  at  a  number  of  places  called  reference  stations. All  times  stated  in  this  table  are  for  standard  time.  When  using  daylight savings  time,  you  must  remember  to  add  1  hour. Table  2  contains  tidal  difference  information  for  heights  and  times  at  a number  of  places  called  subordinate  stations.  This  information  is  listed in  geographical  order;  each  subordinate  station  is  given  a  number,  its location  is  described,  and  its  position  is  given  to  the  nearest  minute. The  data  given  for  the  subordinate  station  are  applied  to  the  predictions at  a  specified  reference  station  to  obtain  the  tidal  information  for  the subordinate  station.  You’ll  see  how  this  works  in  the  example  problems that follow. Table  3  contains  information  used  for  finding  the  approximate  height  of the  tide  at  any  time  between  high  and  low  water.  This  table  also contains  instructions  for  plotting  tide  information  using  a  graphical method.  The  graphical  method  is  handy  for  those  occasions  when  the height  of  tide  is  required  for  a  number  of  times  on  a  given  day. Table  4  is  a  sunrise-sunset  table  listing  LMT  of  the  Sun’s  upper  limb  for every  5th  day  of  the  year. Table  5  provides  an  adjustment  to  convert  the  LMT  found  in  table  4  to zone  or  standard  time. Table  6  gives  the  zone  time  of  moonrise  and  moonset  for  each  day  of the  year  at  certain  places. Table  7  is  a  conversion  of  feet  to  meters  table. 7-6
