A vertically integrated 2D numerical model was developed for the simulation of major tidal constituents (M2, S2, N2, K1 and O1) in the Bay of Bengal. The bathymetry for the model domain was derived from an improved ETOPO5 dataset prepared in our earlier work. The simulated tidal elevations showed good agreement with the hourly tide gauge observations at Paradip, Visakhapatnam, and Chennai. The amplitudes and phases of M2, S2, K1, and O1 at the coastal stations, obtained from harmonic analysis…

Tidal Circulation Studies Using Regional Model in the Bay of Bengal
Ocean circulation is very much important for ocean engineering in terms of building offshore structures, navigation, renewable energy and designing marine instruments. This study discusses the impact
Numerical study of M2 tide on the Gulf of Thailand
According to the previous study, M2 from SCS amplified around the coastal region but almost low in the Gulf of Thailand (hereafter GoT). To detect the M2 at the shallow part of GoT, we used the 2D

Tidal Analysis and Prediction for the Gangra Location, Hooghly Estuary in the Bay of Bengal
The Hooghly estuary located in the head Bay of Bengal region is a part of the highly dynamic deltaic environment. Tidal variations are pre-dominant in this estuary, and tides propagate considerable
Today the global tides can be derived from tidal inversion software or online sites (Egbert & Erofeeva, 2002; Price et al., 2018). The global tides can be used to describe the tides in large scale


Tides in the Bay of Bengal
The amplitudes and phases of the tidal constituents M2, S2, K1, and O1 in the Bay of Bengal are deduced from tide gauge records at 112 locations with the aid of numerical models based on the
Tidal propagation in the Gulf of Khambhat, Bombay High, and surrounding areas
The continental shelf on the west coast of India is widest off Bombay and leads into a strongly converging channel, the Gulf of Khambhat. Tides in the Gulf are among the largest on the coast. We use
Return period estimates of extreme sea level along the east coast of India from numerical simulations
Estimates of return periods of extreme sea level events along the coast are useful for impact assessment. In this study, a vertically integrated 2D model was developed for the simulation of storm
A storm surge prediction model for the northern Bay of Bengal with application to the cyclone disaster in April 1991
Abstract A numerical model for simulating and predicting tides and storm surges in regions that include areas of open sea combined with estuarine channels and intertidal banks is described. The model
Modelling the global ocean tides: modern insights from FES2004
During the 1990s, a large number of new tidal atlases were developed, primarily to provide accurate tidal corrections for satellite altimetry applications. During this decade, the French tidal group
Ocean Tide Models Developed by Assimilating TOPEX/POSEIDON Altimeter Data into Hydrodynamical Model: A Global Model and a Regional Model around Japan
A global ocean tide model (NAO.99b model) representing major 16 constituents with a spatial resolution of 0.5° has been estimated by assimilating about 5 years of TOPEX/POSEIDON altimeter data into
Numerical modelling of tides and storm surges in the Bay of Bengal
The massive destruction and loss of human life associated with a tropical cyclone can be attributed mainly to the sudden inundation and flooding of the coastal areas produced by storm surges. Storm
A Tidal Flow Model for the Gulf of Kachchh, India
A vertically integrated model has been used to study the tidal circulation and currents in the Gulf of Kachchh along the west coast of India. The model is fully nonlinear and uses a semiexplicit
Improved bathymetric datasets for the shallow water regions in the Indian Ocean
Ocean modellers use bathymetric datasets like ETOPO5 and ETOPO2 to represent the ocean bottom topography. The former dataset is based on digitization of depth contours greater than 200 m, and the
