Diurnal Tide (K1)

This animation of the K1 tide may take a minute or two to load, during which time the frames will refresh one by one. When it is complete you will see the a continuous cycle from high tide (red) through zero (green) to low tide (blue), then back through zero to high tide again.

The K1 tide is strong in the northwest and around the North Cape, but weak everywhere else. Notice the circulation in the southeast corner around Bounty Island.
