The data are simulated instantaneous sea surface elevations above time-mean sea level due to tides alone. The data were produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre. The data were produced to investigate the impact of simulated mean sea level increase on UK coastal tides. To produce the data, the CS3 continental shelf model was used to simulate the tides under various different amounts of mean sea level increase (simulated by simply increasing the bathymetry). The data are the resulting simulated sea surface elevations above the mean sea level. The data covers a period of about 28 days (one spring-neap cycle), and applies to the UK coast.

UKCP18 Simulated Impact of Mean Sea Level Change on Tidal Characteristics Around the UK
The POLCS3 storm surge model was used to produce a simulation of the tides around the UK with mean sea level artificially increased by zero, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 3, 4.5, 5, 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5 or 10 metres. The data show the sea surface elevation relative to the imposed mean sea level. No atmospheric forcing is included: the simulation is tide only (no storm surge).
