NOAA Tide Facts: "Types and Causes of Tidal Cycles – Diurnal, Semidiurnal, Mixed Semidiurnal; Continental Interference : Tide clocks operate effectively when used in Semidiurnal tidal areas. Three basic tidal patterns occur along the Earth's major shorelines. In general, most areas have two high tides and two low tides each day. When the two highs and the two lows are about the same height, the pattern is called a semi-daily or semidiurnal tide. If the high and low tides differ in height, the pattern is called a mixed semidiurnal tide. Some areas, such as the Gulf of Mexico, have only one high and one low tide each day. This is called a diurnal tide. The U.S. West Coast tends to have mixed semidiurnal tides, whereas a semidiurnal pattern is more typical along the East Coast. Although the US and Canadian Pacific Coasts and Hawaii have mixed semidiurnal tides"
