Tidal Current Table and a graphic representation 1


Bison seto

The tidal current table above is for the Bison Seto Channel for February 11. The Lat/Lon coordinates are noted and indicates West flowing currents are marked as (+) and the East flowing currents as (-).
Slack water, which used to be known as ‘The stand of the tide’, is a short period in a body of tidal water either side of high water or low water essentially when the water is completely unstressed, and therefore with no rise or fall of the tide and no movement either way in the tidal stream, and which occurs before the direction of the tidal stream reverses. Slack water can be estimated using a tide table.
Maximum water indicate the highest and lowest predicted tide and the table shows both the height of the tide, the time, and the direction (+/-).
