Abstract:

At the request of COMNAVFORV, the U.S. Naval Branch Oceanographic Office, Saigon, prepared tidal predictions for Vietnam for 1967 and 1968. Since 1969, the tables have been prepared at the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO. These annual tables are based largely on the French tide tables for the area. The reference stations are conversions of the French. The secondary station corrections were obtained from historical data provided by the Vietnamese Directorate of Navigation and by the United Nations Mekong Delta Commission. Further modifications were generated by observations of the NAVOCEANO Riverine Survey Team.
