On my last visit to the BOM website Tidal charts , I've noted that Charts and general site / mechanics / functions / navigations / layout has changed in the Marine and more importantly Tide area ..

Now this is most likely coincidence ;-) , BUT
since Joakse started Questioning relationships between the Moon , Tide and Swell intensity , the Charts no longer show Moon Phase ...

Conspiracy theory of the highest order , or have the Geeks just accidently ommitted it ????
The Truth is out there .... lol

Classic!

I think what's happened is that they've hand-balled moon data over to its relevant authority, which is Geoscience Australia (see this link on the BOM's FAQ page), which goes here.

Apologies for posting it in here , but i couldn't for the love of wetsuit rash find the original topic where we where all musing over the SWELL moon connection .

Its pissed me off a little that they've handballed , no longer could i work out where the moon will be in a few months time and tide ... heheh

On a brighter note , they are now Printable ...... YES no more Fishing charts for this little Black duck ... Maybe there's an opening for you guys to do it .
Maybe i should start using your site for all this rather just gas bagging .
But the promise of the NEW site , has me holding off ( I don't want to master the navigation and familirality?? in here , for it all to change [Two Weeks / Two Years later ? ] ....... WHEN BEN , WHEN

Funnily enough , the link between the FAQ And GA is broken when you click the Moon Phase link [email protected]!!! its a conspiracy for Sure !!! ..... hahah

Actually, I don't think we have lunar info in the new site but it's something we can easily include in the future. Site should be live something this week (fingers crossed).
