Content outline:

  • Tide theory, the origin of tide raising forces, tidal regimes.
  • Tide measurement, different technology of tide gauges.
  • Tide prediction. Introduction to tide modeling and usage of tide prediction tools .
  • Sounding reduction techniques from tide information and depth measurements.


The main learning outcomes of TID are:

  1. To describe the static tide theory, identify tidal regimes and harmonic constituents of a tide prediction model
  2. To use tide prediction models and to be aware of non tidal effects on water levels
  3. To deploy, calibrate and use tide poles and tide gauges
  4. To describe chart datums  and separation models
