FES2014 tidal elevations in meters (left) and tidal currents in m/s (right) on 2016/09/18, 08:00UTC. An animation over 3 days can also be downloaded.
The new tidal model FES2014 is available on a regular grid of 1/16° : tide elevations, tide load and tide currents can be predicted thanks this model (tide currents are delivered for scientific purposes only as stated in the licence agreement).
FES is a finite elements hydrodynamic model which assimilates in-situ data and altimeter data (Topex/ Poseidon, Jason-1, Jason-2, T/P interleaved - J1 interleaved, ERS-1, ERS-2, and Envisat). The altimeter measurements need also to be corrected for several geophysical parameters among which the ocean tide correction is one of the most critical.
