Question about saltwater tide tables

Postby ducksonline » Wed Jun 23, 2010 1:30 pm

Hello, out there, moderator or anyone?

I have been greatly enjoying the tide tables for both fishing and kayaking here in the Nisqually Estuary of Puget Sound. There is a feature of the table that is driving me crazy because I cannot figure out what it is.

To see what I mean, you have click on the link that says, "Print today's tide table," or somehting like that. On the horizontal axis (time of day), there is a little vertical red line that shows up shortly after high tide each day; it is on the ebb tide side of the curve. Can anyone tell me what this is?

Example: Dupont Wharf, Nisqually reach, Puget Sound WA, June 19, 2010. The marks show up near 1:00 AM, 2:00 PM and again near 1:00 AM on JUne 20.

Help!

Hi Don,

Sorry it took me a minute to get on here to answer your question.

I believe the little red lines you're talking about indicate the time of Moonrise and Moonset.
