Abstract: This technical note describes a database of tidal elevation boundary condition information generated in support of the “Long-Term Fate of Dredged Material Disposed in Open Water” research of the Dredging Research Program (DRP), being conducted at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. The database, described in detail by Hench and others (1994), allows the user to manually generate time series of tidal elevations or to use a program to access the full database to generate time series of both tidal elevations and currents for any location along the west coast of the United States and eastern north Pacific Ocean, extending from Seal Cape on Unimak Island, Alaska, in the north to Punts Parada, Peru, in the south. The land boundary includes the Pacific shorelines of Alaska, Canada, mainland United States, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, and northern Peru. Although the capability to generate these time series was developed to provide input to the Long-Term Fate and Stability Model (LTFATE), the generated time series can be used for any application requiring tidal forcing data.
