The tidal prediction software, POLTIPS·3 for Windows, is an easy-to-use software package for producing tide tables or tidal graphs for a wide range of locations around the UK. It is available for purchase from the Applications Group.
The powerful tidal computation engine in this software is the same as that used by the UK Environment Agency to compute tidal levels, which are then used to decide when the Thames Barrier should be closed in order to protect London from extreme sea-levels.
The National Oceanography Centre has developed a new Windows-based version of TASK (Tidal Analysis Software Kit), a suite of programs that includes harmonic analysis of data (for example, from tide gauges), tidal prediction, formatted tide table production, a data manipulation toolkit and the calculation of daily and monthly means. Further information is available from the NOC Applications Team. An evaluation version of the software is also available.
