Science / Tides and Currents / Tidal Current Tables: Tables which give daily predictions of the times and velocities of the tidal currents. These predictions are usually supplemented by current differences and constants through which predictions can be obtained for numerous other locations.
Current Noun Synonyms: course, progress, tendency, tenor, drift, trend, inclination, mainstream
Current Adjective Synonyms: contemporary, ongoing, present, contemporaneous, simultaneous, coeval
Science / Tides and Currents / Current Diagram: A graphic table published in the Tidal Current Tables showing the speeds of the flood and ebb currents and the times of slacks and strengths over a considerable stretch of the channel of a tidal water MORE
Science / Tides and Currents / Subordinate Current Station: (1) A current station from which a relatively short series of observations is reduced by comparison with simultaneous observations from a control current station. See current station, control current MORE
Science / Tides and Currents / Current Difference: Difference between the time of slack water (or minimum current) or strength of current in any locality and the time of the corresponding phase of the tidal current at a reference station for which pre MORE
