Daily Sea Level Anomalies
The top panel in the figure below shows the predicted and observed sea level heights over approximately the last 8 months. The blue line represents the predicted water level (astronomical tide) with the black dots denoting the daily maximum predicted water level. The red dots show the observed daily maximum water level. The middle panel shows the difference between the observed and predicted daily maximum water level. The bottom panel presents a long-term view of the observed daily maximum water level going back to 1950 (when data available).
