Nine regional volumes provide comprehensive details and world-wide coverage of tidal data. New editions are published annually.
Vol. 1A: General arrangement
The introduction deals with a number of subjects of general interest, in particular the effect of meteorological conditions on tidal heights; following the introduction are a number of special tables and diagrams for use with the tide tables.
Part I of these tables gives daily predictions of the times and heights of high and low waters at a selected number of Standard Ports.
The list of Standard Ports is given at the front of the book. Included with each set of predictions for Standard Ports is a diagram to facilitate the calculation of heights at times other than high and low water. An explanation of the use of these diagrams is given in the Instructions for the use of the Tables (page xviii). Note that diagrams are not available for Truro and Darnett Ness due to limited source data.
Part Ia gives hourly height predictions for Plymouth (Devonport), Poole, Southampton, Portsmouth and St. Helier.
Part II gives data for prediction at a large number of Secondary Ports; this is in the form of time and height differences, referred to one of the Standard Ports in Part I.
Part III gives the harmonic constants for use with the Simplified Harmonic Method of Tidal Prediction. In those cases where harmonic constants are given two alternative methods of prediction are available.
