Tidal charts of the Indian Ocean north of 15°S

We have constructed new tidal charts of the northern Indian Ocean by empirical means from existing data and from recent deep pressure gage measurements. A brief comparison is made to Dietrich's (1944) charts and to some existing numerical models of the region. The deviations from Dietrich's charts are significant but not drastic.
