We estimate the vertical structure of tidal frequency energy at various locations in the ocean by decomposing current records from the WHOI moored buoy archive. Estimates are made of the barotropic and baroclinic modes 1-4 for multiple locations, primarily in the North Atlantic and North Pacific. Estimates are also made for energy flux rates at some locations. The implied global dissipation rate fro the internal tides is significantly below estimates from altimetry.
