Description 
Summary

Tidal predictions are generated from measured data via the Irish National Tide Gauge Network and via modelled data from the MI operational hydrodynamic model. Tidal prediction is a calculation of future tide ranges based on available oceanographic parameters. Users can select a station and datetime within the next 2 years for the tidal prediction using the menus available. Water Level is sea surface height above local Lowest Astronomical Tide measured in metres.
