Subject: Discontinuation of Tides On Line (TOL) Coastal

†††††††† Observation Product at NOS/CO-OPS Effective

†††††††† October 16, 2017

 

Effective October 16, 2017, at 1300 Coordinated Universal Time

(UTC) (9AM EST), the NOAA/NOS Tides On Line Product will be

discontinued by NOS/CO-OPS

 

https://tidesonline.nos.noaa.gov

The TOL product displays coastal near real time observations of

water level, winds, water and air temperature and atmospheric

pressure from NOS/CO-OPS NWLON stations. There are no changes to

the NWLON observing system but the TOL display has become

redundant with newer data dissemination pathways at

 

https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/

Users of this product are directed to the following URLs which

display the same information:

 

https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/map/index.shtml

https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/products.html

 

Every NWLON station has a home page which provides the same real

time data as displayed by TOL along with station specific

metadata and links to the full suite of products derived from

that stationís observations. An example of a NWLON station home

page can be found at:

 

https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/stationhome.html?id=8575512

 

The URLs listed above are already active and users can start

using them at any time.
