Tidal Current Table and a graphic representation 2

 

graph of current

This is a graphic representation of the current table. Time for slack waters are indicated on the center line.Times and ‘strengths’ of the high and low tides are also shown.

Regular Tide tables are generally identical to this format and predict high and low water at particular places on a coastline called ‘Standard ports”. The tides for nearby minor ports can be estimated by time and height differences between a “standard” port and these minor ports. These are the topic of most of your exam questions
