Description 
Summary

Please note: the data are not organised in a data bank/base format. To carry out its activity, NET uses tide elevations available for the study site, or specifically commissioned for it. Sources of these data are: tide charts (edited by Portuguese Navy), tide tables (date/time, height above local datum). Some of these data have been digitised, forming computer data files containing sea level time series, generally at one hour intervals.
