Tide level measurement...

  1. Hi,

    I would like to include tidal data at my weather station page. Which
    type of senser do I use for this? I assume that I should use a rugged
    plastic tube with some ultrasonic sensor to measure distance from the
    top down to the sea surface. Max level difference around 2m.

    Does it exist used equipment available (ebay etc) for this usage?

    Thanks a lot for all tips and comments ;-)

    Some info here on gauge types

    what would be interesting is doing a graphical comparison between actual and
    predicted tides , like this one for Bournemouth, England ( i regularly
    monitor that one and Portsmouth as predictors for Southampton VTS which has
    only a near real time gauge numerical output to the internet, but difference
    of real over/under predicted is often more important)

    perhaps using WXtide32

    a freeware application, if your location is included for the predicted.
