SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 trends using a 5 year time period for determination of tide level datums. Note: The times and sequence specified in this agenda are subject to change. AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Socioeconomic SSC Agenda, Friday, November 8, 2013, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Notice of Change to the Nation’s Tidal Datums With the Adoption of a Modified Procedure for Computation of Tidal Datums in Area of Anomalous Sea-Level Change National Ocean Service (NOS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Department of Commerce. ACTION: Notice to advise the public of periodic updates to tidal datums due to the adoption of modified procedures for computation of accepted tidal datums in areas of anomalous relative sea-level AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NOAA has typically updated tidal datum elevations for the nation to new National Tidal Datum Epoch (NTDE) time periods every 20–25 years. Updates are necessary due to long-term sea level change. In 1998, NOS recognized the need for a modified procedure for determination of tidal datums for regions with anomalously high rates of relative sea level change. This modified procedure is necessary at selected stations to ensure that the tidal datums accurately represent the existing stand of sea level. The procedure is limited only to those stations in areas with high rates of vertical land motion that have documented anomalous relative sea level trends exceeding 9.0 millimeters per year. Sea level analyses in these anomalous regions are conducted approximately every 5 years to determine if the mean sea level difference exceeds the established threshold tolerances in order to qualify for a special update. Anomalous relative sea level trends are seen along the western Gulf Coast, southeast Alaska, and southern Cook Inlet, AK. For example, the magnitude of the sea level trends in these areas is +9.24 millimeters per year in Grand Isle, LA; –12.92 millimeters per year in Juneau, AK; and –9.45 millimeters per year in Seldovia, AK. This procedure is necessary to provide the most accurate information available for applications that are essential to supporting Federal, State and private sector coastal zone activities, including hydrographic surveys and coastal mapping, navigational safety, wetland restoration, marine boundary determinations, coastal engineering, storm warnings and hazard mitigation, emergency management, and hydrodynamic modeling. While maintaining the 19 year NTDE computational period for tidal mean range and diurnal range, a shorter more recent 5 year computational period is used to compute the mean tide level datums to better reflect the current elevation of mean sea level relative to the land. Consequently, tidal datums at stations exhibiting anomalous trends are computed from mean sea level, diurnal tide level and mean tide level values for the most recent 5 year time period, and tidal ranges (GT and MN) based on the most recent full 19 year NTDE at stations. The average absolute difference between 19 year NTDE time periods across the nation of 0.03 meters (0.10 E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1
