Tide Model for the Hawaiian Islands: Main NW Islands
Entry ID: tide_mhi

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Tide model for the Hawaiian Islands. The model is based on climatological stratification, but 64 harmonics are used to model the full-depth baroclinic tides. The model has been run at 1km resolution, hourly, through the end of 2015. Due to computing limitations, the model grid is divided into two pieces, one for the Northwestern main Hawaiian Islands (Kauai, Oahu, Maui) and the other for the Big Island. While considerable effort has been made to implement all model components in a thorough, correct, and accurate manner, numerous sources of error are possible. As such, please use this output with the caution appropriate for any ocean related activity.

Purpose: PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.
