NOAA tide tables at 150 years and counting
Tide predictions play an important role in coastal communities across the Untied States. They allow both commercial and recreational boaters who work, live and recreate along our coasts, to safely navigate through high and low tides each and every day. Furthermore, tourist publications, coastal newspapers, and fishing guides all contain tide and current predictions that originate from NOAA’s data. Learn how NOAA and its predecessor agencies have played an integral part in the evolution of how tide tables have been produced and calculated over the last 150 years.
