To find the time of high water for any place given in the table below apply the correction opposite the place to the times of high water for its respective port given for every day on the twelve calendar pages of this Almanac. Add the correction to time of high water when it is plus, and subtract it when it is minus. Example: To find time of high water at Rockland, Me., on January 26, 1911

Time of high water at Boston, January 26..
Correction for Rockland, Me. (see below).

9 12 p. m. -0 26 p. m.

8 46 p. m.

Time of high water at Rockland, Me., January 26. Add 6 h. (or, more exactly, one-fourth of the daily difference between two successive tides at the desired date) to this for the succeeding low water or subtract same for preceding low water, and apply 12 h. in the same way for the other high water of the same date.

TIME CALCULATIONS AND EXPLANATIONS OF SIGNS AND ABBREVIATIONS.

as

All the calculations except the Moon's Phases, Tides and seasons are in mean local time. (See table for its conversion into Standard Time.) The Sun's rising and getting is for the upper limb and corrected for refraction. The signs used are follows: conjunction or near approach, at which time a line from the North Star through one will also pass through the other; 8. opposition or 180° from the Sun, at which time the Superior Planets are the brightest; D, quadrature or 90° from the Sun; Sun; . Earth; Mercury; 9, Venus; d. Mars; 4. Jupiter; h. Saturn; Uranus; W, Neptune; 3, Moon generally; N Ascending Node; U, Descending Per.-Perihelion, or nearest to Sun; applied to Planets. Aph.-Aphelion, or furthest from Sun; applied to Planets, Per.-Perigee, or nearest to Earth; applied to the Moon. So. Southing, or Meridian Passage.
