Tide Predictions:


Tides are one of the most regular phenomena in the world.  Basically, tides are very long-period waves that move through the oceans in response to the forces exerted by the moon and sun.  Tides originate in the oceans and progress toward the coastlines where they appear as the regular rise and fall of the sea surface.  When the highest part or crest of the wave reaches a particular location, a high tide occurs.  And a low tide is the lowest part of the wave, or trough.

A horizontal current of water, the tidal current, often accompanies the rising and falling of the tide.  The incoming tide along the coast and into the bays and estuaries is called a flood current, and the outgoing tide is called ebb current.  The strongest flood and ebb currents usually occur before or near the time of the high and low tides.  And the weakest currents occur between the flood and ebb currents and are called slack tides.  In the open ocean, tidal currents are relatively weak, but near estuary entrances, narrow straits and inlets, tidal currents can reach speeds of up to several knots.

SANDY HOOK, NJ TIDES - Tide table for the current month.  Times of sunrise and sunset, moonrise and moonset, plus moon phases are included in this table.  Please note that weather conditions can greatly affect times of high and low tides and current speeds.
