About this book

Predicting and monitoring tides is a matter of constant concern to those responsible for harbours, navigation and shipping, weather and public safety, shoreline construction and sea level as well as for the vacationer at the beach. Presented here is a picture of the forces governing the tides, and a description of tidal behaviour. The volume is based on work presented at the 1988 International Conference on Tidal Hydrodynamics, the first such conference in 25 years.
