This creates a time-series of predicted tides, based on a tidal model object that was created by as.tidem() or tidem().

# S3 method for tidem
predict(object, newdata, ...)



a tidem object.


vector of POSIXt times at which to make the prediction. For models created with tidem(), the newdata argument is optional, and if it is not provided, then the predictions are at the observation times given to tidem(). However, newdata is required if as.tidem() had been used to create object.


optional arguments passed on to children.


A vector of predictions.
