Abstract

A geographical representation of the amplitude and phase distribution of the solar semidiurnal pressure oscillation over North America shows clearly the amphidromic point expected here because of the superposition of the traveling and standing semidiurnal waves. It indicates also certain peculiarities in the phase and amplitude distribution which may be due to orographic and coastal influences. The seasonal variations of the solar semidiurnal pressure wave for the western stations are quite different from those for the stations in that central plains and in the east of the continent. Especially the total phase change throughout the year is much smaller in the west.

Abstract

The lunar semidiurnal tide and the solar 24-, 12-, 8-, and 6-hour oscillations have been determined for the six stations Balboa, Panama; San Juan, P.R.; Aguadilla, P.R.; Burbank, Calif.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Greensboro, N.C.

Abstract

The lunar semidiurnal barometric tide L 2 and the solar 24-, 12-, and 8-hr. oscillations of the surface pressure have been determined for 10 stations in Australia and on adjacent islands. At Rabaul and Moresby L 2 is considerably smaller than elsewhere in these latitudes. The characteristic annual variation of the phase—late high tide during the D season—is found at most Australian stations. But the annual amplitude minimum occurs only at half the Australian stations during this season, contrary to the behavior of L 2 over most of the globe.

Abstract

The lunar air tide and the solar 24-, 12-, 8-, and 6-hourly oscillations have been determined for Willemstad, N.W.I. and Trinidad, B.W.I. Monthly means of these oscillations have been computed for Puerto Rico.
