About this tool

An InterTides run requires choosing one of the six functions. Depending on this choice, a few required and optional parameters must be set. These parameters deal with the selection of an area, the selection of a time or a period, the choice of a height map, the choice of interpolation settings, and a few output options. All parameters are listed and discussed in the InterTides manual.  In this report you will find briefly the meaning of  'area selection'  and the various functions.
