Tide Tables

Science / Tides and Currents / Tide Tables: Tables which give daily predictions of the times and heights of high and low waters. These predictions are usually supplemented by tidal differences and constants through which predictions can be obtained for numerous other locations.

Subordinate Tide Station

Science / Tides and Currents / Subordinate Tide Station: (1) A tide station from which a relatively short series of observations is reduced by comparison with simultaneous observations from a tide station with a relatively long series of observations. See t MORE

Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP)

Science / Genetics / Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP): Dna sequence variations that occur when a single nucleotide (a, t, c, or g) in the genome sequence is altered. MORE

Sequence Of Tide

Science / Tides and Currents / Sequence Of Tide: The order in which the four tides of a day occur, with special reference as to whether the higher high water immediately precedes or follows the lower low water. MORE

Secondary Control Tide Station

Science / Tides and Currents / Secondary Control Tide Station: A tide station at which continuous observations have been made over a minimum period of 1 year but less than 19 years. The series is reduced by comparison with simultaneous observations from a primary MORE

Solar Tide

Science / Tides and Currents / Solar Tide: (1) The part of the tide that is due to the tide-producing force of the Sun. (2) The observed tide in areas where the solar tide is dominant. This condition provides for phase repetition at about the MORE

Reduction Of Tides

Science / Tides and Currents / Reduction Of Tides: A processing of observed tide or tidal current data to obtain mean values for tidal or tidal current constants. MORE
