I've been following this. I spent a lot of time in St Vincent during the late 1990s.
@idefix37 Thank you for noticing, we will fix that!
Copernicus tidal currents data is based on the variation of sea surface altimetry measured by satellites (From CMEMS Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service).
From this data which gives the sea surface level, tidal currents are computed.
The satellite data resolution is 0.25° x 0.25° or 15NM x 15NM (27km x 27km). That is enough to estimate correctly the sea surface level excepted in closed, long or narrow bays. In fact the tidal currents speed depends also on coast line and seabed mapping. So in some areas these currents are probably underestimated.

OK if you like it :)
You are right, this is obvious when latitude-longitude grid is shown (see Settings).
The reflection of the sun moves a little more north each day and will disappear before reappearing around September 20 at the time of the equinox.
I adjusted the color scale so that it shows jet streams.
Here is some further information:

Hi @idefix37, thank you for your message. We're working on this issue.
Yes confirmed, fixed :)
🤔 FB doesn't like the article... Requested a review, we'll see what's going on there...
Please consider using different contour intevals.
Fantastic write up, Thanks
WOW first article publisher
