Barotropic Tide Model for the Pacific Basin
Entry ID: tide_pac

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Barotropic tide model for the Pacific Ocean. The model is based on harmonics distributed by Oregon State University (OSU) and assimilates satellite altimetry data from TOPEX/Poseidon. It was generated using OSU Tidal Prediction Software (OTPS), modified locally by J. Potemra, using barotropic inverse tidal solutions from OSU. 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.
