Abstract or Summary
  • Spectral analysis was used to investigate semidaily mean sea levels and atmospheric pressures at San Francisco, California, Coos Bay, Oregon, and Tofino, British Columbia, in the frequency band 0 to 0.5 cpd. Cross spectral analysis of semidaily mean sea levels and atmospheric pressures at the three stations show that the response of sea level to low-frequency atmospheric pressure fluctuations is nonbarometric in the frequency band studied, and varies with season. Cross spectral analysis of semidaily mean sea levels between adjacent stations shows that there exists significant coherence between the Coos Bay and Tofino sea levels within the frequency band studied and phase difference between the stations is consistent with the hypothesis of continental shelf waves traveling from south to north along the coast.
