From the Preface: This book is written for the many intelligent people who work or play along the coast between Sandy Hook and the Bay of Fundy in the hope that it will give them a better understanding of matters which greatly influence the daily ordering of their activities. It may be of value to the serious student of the tides, at the beginning as an introduction to tidal theory and later as a summary of the tides on this particular coast. The stretch of coast considered and the off-lying ocean contain examples of practically all known tidal phenomena. The book is based for the most part on information given in the tide and current tables published by the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, formerly the Coast and Geodetic Survey. It is not intended to replace these tables if one would know what to expect at any particular place on any particular day. Rather, it attempts to explain why the tide locally is as it is and why it varies from place to place.
