The Sectional Chart - Maps with Vertical Beach Profiles EE and FF are enlarged from the areas shown in
Chart-Map 1041 Directly under the Sectional Chart-Map,
and at the same horizontal scale, the Beach Profile is drawn, to the left of which a space is provided to insert the tide curve. Instructions for the use of these diagrams in Ortho-
tidal projection are to be found on the reverse side of this
sheet. The Beach Profiles shown here are distorted, the ver­ tical scale being 10 times the horizontal scale which has
been kept the same as that of the accompanying map.
Owing to the distortion, the slopes appear much steeper
than they actually are, but more accurate vertical measure­ ments for the application of tidal data are thus made
possible. The profiles have been developed from the following sources.
Chart depths from French Hydrographic Chart, 1938.
Beach elevations from Aerial Photographs taken at
varying stages of tide.
Land elevations from available map sources, and obli­ que Aerial Photographs, (see below)
The map shown on this sheet has been developed
entirely from Aerial Photographs, and spot heights taken
from French Charts.
Water depths and Beach elevations (in feet) are re­ ferred to the Chart Datum Plane, which corresponds ap­ proximately to the lowest occuring low water.
Heights on land are referred to Map zero, approx­ imately Mean Sea Level, shown in the vertical profile scale.
The landing craft silhouette transparent accompanying
the profile sheet is used in the following way:
The hour contemplated for the beaching of the craft
is marked on the tide curve (for the day) and the height
of the water drawn to the profile. To this water-level, the
waterline of the landing craft is adjusted, and the silhouette
slid until touching the profile. In this manner the beaching
, of craft for an entire operation can be studied. Tide Curve for the day to be inserted here
