Short summary
Ocean forecasting systems predict ocean water level, but the accuracy of predictions varies as a function of the forecast lead time and the dynamics causing water level variability. This study investigates the accuracy of predictions of tidal water levels in the AMSEAS forecast system, with emphasis on the small (roughly 5 cm) fluctuations associated with the baroclinic tide.
