tidalCurrent dataset contains tidal velocities reported in
Foreman's (1978) report (reference 1) on his Fortran code for the analysis of
tidal currents and provided in an associated webpage (reference 2).
tidalCurrent is data frame containing
time a POSIXct time.
u the eastward component of velocity in m/s.
v the northward component of velocity in m/s.
The data come from the
