    David Flater is the author of XTide, a Unix-based tide prediction
    program which was also the starting point for tide software now out
    for several other platforms.  Here's an excerpt from his bibliography:
    >Canonical sources on the NOS tide prediction methodology (including
    >a mathematical explanation from first principles in SP98):
    >       Manual of Harmonic Analysis and Prediction of Tides.  Special
    >Publication No. 98, Revised (1940) Edition (reprinted 1958 with
    >corrections; reprinted again 1994).
    >       United States Government Printing Office, 1994.
    >       Computer Applications to Tides in the National Ocean Survey.
    >Supplement to Manual of Harmonic Analysis and Prediction of Tides
    >(Special Publication No. 98).
    >       National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
    >Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, January 1982.
    >Those can be ordered from NOAA for $5 or $10, depending on the phase
    >of the moon.
