The National Geodetic Survey (NGS), formerly the United States Survey of the Coast (–), United States Coast Survey (–), and United States Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) (–), is a United States federal agency that defines and manages a national coordinate system, providing the foundation for transportation and communication.

The investigations of the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey indicate that the spring tide, the largest tides caused by the combined forces of the sun and moon, is less than 2 inches (5cm) in height. These minor variations are masked by the greater fluctuations in lake levels produced by wind and barometric pressure changes.
