Why is that?
The NOAA Extra Tropical Water Level guidance is located at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/mdl/etsurge/index.php?page=stn®ion=me&type=both&stn=vahamp
In this blog I want to note the anomaly that often occurs along our coast.
By anomaly I mean a higher water level that is not explained by normal astronomical tide prediction or the wind. Or, as stated in the manual associated with the guidance
Dr. Tom Rossby (URI) has a paper out with an analysis showing no slowing of the Gulf Stream.
This is an area of active research.
