Short summary
On ice-affected coasts, obtaining year-long sea level records for traditional tidal predictions is difficult. We evaluate the complete tidal species modulation with tidal constant corrections (CTSM+TCC) method for predicting tides at the "mixed, mainly diurnal" Jang Bogo Antarctic Research Station in the Ross Sea, Antarctica, using short in situ records plus longer records from the nearby "diurnal" Cape Roberts. The method succeeded in using data from periods with above-average tidal ranges.
