Tidal Studies

MHS can conduct tide level and current flow observations of short or long term duration and provide analysis services and written reports as a basis for all marine studies. The latest technologies enable us to establish tidal datum (LAT), tidal planes and harmonic constituents.

MHS provides a full range of short and long term tidal measurement and analysis services as a basis for all marine studies.

Key Benefits

  • Accurate and reliable results;
  • Establishment of tidal datums and planes;
  • Establishment of harmonic constituents;
  • Experienced personnel.
Current & Tidal Studies

Capabilities

MHS provides an accurate and reliable measurement program using a range of pressure and RADAR sensors which can be deployed on a short or long term basis. Tidal studies result in the establishment of tidal planes and datums and harmonic constituents for the area of survey.

 

Deployment of digital pressure sensor gauges on fixed structures for short and long term tidal monitoring, connected by two way levelling to bench marks on shore for estuarine or nearshore surveys ot tidal studies.

Deployment of digital pressure sensor gauges offshore either buoy or bottom mounted for offshore and charting surveys.

Analysis of all measured tidal data and establishment of LAT (Lowest Astronomical Tide) and MSL (Mean Sea Level) datums, tidal planes and harmonic constituents.
