Tide Gauge comparison

This map shows the location of 10 tide gauges operated by NOAA. We use the hourly data (MLLW datum) with the mean removed to compare against the model SSH output (as close as we can get to the tide gauge location for 9 of the 10 gauges (South Beach is to the south of our current model domain).

Click on a star to see the location name- then click on the location name to see a plot of the SSH comparisons for ~1 month of model runs and a low-passed SSH comparison for the full year (use the back button to return here). Skill scores and squared correlation coefficients are also reported for each tide gauge.
