Ephemerides Nautiques. Abridgment of 'Connaissance des Temps' made for use of seamen. It is thus the French equivalent to the British 'Nautical Almanac.'

Ephemeris. Almanac giving positions of heavenly bodies at intervals not exceeding one day.

Epicycle. Circle whose centre is situated in circumference of another circle.

Epoch. A particular moment of time from which other times are reckoned. In tides, it may be used to define the instant when an harmonic constituent transits a meridian. In U.S.A. practice it is used to denote the interval between the transit of a tidal con­stituent and the occurrence of its maximum effect.
