NW European Shelf Tidal Current Constituent Data Bank (1970-1988)
Entry ID: BODC_NWEurShelf_TidalConst

Abstract: The data set comprises full tidal analyses for over 800 current meter
records collected at 400 sites in the seas around the British Isles,
covering the continental shelf area and the shelf slope. The vast
majority of the analyses in this data set are based on harmonic
analyses, where the amplitude and phases of the tidal constituents are
determined by a least squares fit. The data were selected from the
BODC Current Meter Databank so as to provide representative coverage
over the shelf areas - only good quality series were selected.

AVAILABILITY: Data are available from BODC on magnetic tape, floppy
disk or via ftp over Internet.
