Blow Out Tide in the Delaware Estuary
High winds in the Delaware Estuary region caused a “blowout” tide in early April 2016, where observed water surface elevations were much lower than those predicted via harmonic constituents. Extreme low blowout tides can hamper navigation due insufficient depth.
This animated graph was created in R using data obtained from the NOAA PORTS system for the Delaware Estuary, using the NOAA API and the animation library.
