Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...too many negative values. Before taking means of the intervals and heights, the length of series to be used must be decided upon. Length of series suitable for finding the semidiurnal range of tide and the mean lunitidal interval.--Since the variation in range, from day to day depends chiefly upon the manner in which the semidiurnal components fall upon M2, the required length of series should be, as nearly as possible, a multiple of the synodic periods of S2, N2, L2, K2, ... with M2; i. e. of the form a Sa 14-765 + b (N2 + L2) 27-555 + c K2 13-661 +... where a, b, c, ... are integers. The weights S2, N2 4-L2, K2, ... are given to the synodic periods because the direct effect of any component in altering the range of the tide is nearly proportional to its amplitude. For the purpose of eliminating the diurnal inequality as far as possible, the, l water which ends the series should be of the opposite kind from the, u water beginning it. As a length of series suited to the high waters is generally also suited to the low waters, one should solve the above equation to the nearest lunar half day. This having been done, the results expressed in mean solar days are as follows: For a more elaborate mode of analysis, see a paper by Prof. G. H. Darwin entitled "On the harmonic analysis of tidal observations of high and low water," Roy. Soc. Proc., Vol. 48 (1890), pages 278-340, see also a correction to this paper, ibid., Vol. 52 (1892), pages 388, 389. t For an example see $ 30. 29, 58, 87, 105, 134, 1C3, 192, 221, 250, 279, 297, 326, 355, 384. It is often convenient to divide the series, whatever its length, into periods of 29 days each. Since the transits of the true (not the mean) moon are used, the lunar semidiurnal components Nz, L-2, ...
