Tide Clocks for the East Coast of North America
These Tide Clocks are calibrated for the tides on the East Coast of North America (Atlantic Coast). They will not be accurate for the Pacific or West Coast of North America. The tides on the east coast differ from the west coast in their duration and frequency.
Three basic tidal patterns occur along the Earthâ€™s major shorelines. In general, most areas have two high tides and two low tides each day. When the two highs and the two lows are about the same height, the pattern is called a semi-daily or semidiurnal tide. If the high and low tides differ in height, the pattern is called a mixed semidiurnal tide. Some areas, such as the Gulf of Mexico, have only one high and one low tide each day. This is called a diurnal tide. The (North American) West Coast tends to have mixed semidiurnal tides, whereas a semidiurnal pattern is more typical of the East Coast (Sumich, J.L., 1996; Thurman, H.V., 1994; Ross, D.A., 1995).
