NOAA Tides and Water Levels Tutorial

Launch Resource

Maritime activities throughout the world depend on accurate tidal and current information for safe operation. NOAA's National Ocean Service collects, studies and provides access to thousands of historical and real-time observations as well as predictions of water levels, coastal currents and other data. The Tides and Waters Levels Tutorial is an overview of the complex systems that govern the movement of tides and water levels. The Roadmap to Resources complements the information in the tutorial by directing you to additional information and data from NOAA and other reliable resources. The Subject Review would be useful for teachers to use as a worksheet for students to answer questions as they go through to tutorial, or could help generate quiz questions. This website also includes a video on storm surges and a podcast on tides.
