# How to calculate tide times?

How do I calculate the time of the tides at a given location?

I'm not interested in the amplitude of the tides, just the times when they occur.

• This answer physics.stackexchange.com/q/121830 explains why the ocean's response to tidal forcing is complex. There is no simple answer that can be calculated. – BowlOfRed Aug 16 '15 at 5:36
