Abstract In a small, rectangular, mid-latitude bay too narrow and too deep for Poincare modes to propagates semidiurnal tidal energy, the co-oscillating semidiurnal tide must be primarily a superposition of oppositely travelling Kelvin waves. We generalize Taylor's (1921) study of the reflection of Kelvin waves at the head of such a bay, now allowing the boundary at the head to absorb a variable portion of the power flux incident upon it. In a bay of uniform depth, the resulting displacement of… CONTINUE READING
