2023 NOAA Tidal Current Tables: Pacific Coast of North America
Pacific Coast Tidal Current Tables informs the reader on the expected behaviors of the oceans along the eastern coasts of North America and its waves through charts, graphs, and informative writing. Topics include daily predicted times of slack water and predicted times and velocities of maximum current (flood and ebb), the speed of a current at times between slack water and maximum current, and the duration of weak current near the time of slack water.
NOAA tide predictions are used by both commercial and recreational mariners for safe navigation. Printed tide tables provide users with tide and tidal current predictions in an easy-to-read format for particular locations.
In 2020, NOAA announced that it will eliminate paper publications of the annual Tide Tables and Tidal Current Tables beginning in 2021. In order to provide a similar printed resource for those who prefer a physical copy, Paradise Cay Publications has prepared this edition, which is designed to emulate the format and content of the official NOAA tide table books as closely as possible.
Some significant exceptions are indicated in the introduction to the book. This edition does NOT fulfill any carriage requirements. It does, however, contain the official tidal data from the NOAA site as of the time of printing.
