Today Monday, 3rd of August of 2015, the sun will rise in Point Barrow at 3:33 am and sunset was at 1:30 am. The moon rose in the east (100º) at 12:38 am and will set in the west (268º) at 12:17 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide will be at 3:46 am and the next high tide at 4:32 pm. The first low tide will be at 10:19 am and the next low tide at 10:40 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we had 0 hours and 0 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 2:32 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 39 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 98. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 93 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 88. The tide heights today are 0.3 ft, 0.0 ft, 0.3 ft and 0.0 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Point Barrow which is of 0.3 ft and a minimum height of 0.0 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Point Barrow tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 12:38 am to 1:38 am, low activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 6:27 am to 8:27 am, average activity Major period (moon up)
from 12:17 pm to 1:17 pm, low activity minor period (moonset)
from 6:26 pm to 8:26 pm, average activity Major period (moon down)
Tide timetable for Point Barrow. The times are generated in local time in Far North Alaska and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Point Barrow are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in feet referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
