Dit werk werd uitgevoerd in het kader van het project " Secondary tides and quasi-periodically forced nonlinear oscillators " binnen de project-ruimte van de Stichting voor Fundamenteel Onderzoek der Materie (F.O.M.), die financieel wordt gesteund door de Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (N.W.O.). Introduction Tides play an important role in the lives of many coastal communities. Due to resonance huge tidal ranges occur in particular bays whose natural (eigen-)period of… 
Amplified exchange rate by tidal forcing of a piecewise-linear Helmholtz bay
Sea-level and current measurements have been performed in the Mok Bay, a tidal embayment in the Dutch Wadden Sea, situated on the island of Texel, the Netherlands. Characteristic for this estuary is

Short relatively deep tidal basins, which are connected to the open sea by a narrow strait, may exhibit either an amplified (resonant), or damped (choked) response to the tide at the entrance. Here

SummaryNumerical fluctuations of the tidal harmonic constants are well known, but this behaviour has been supposed, in most of the cases, due to nonperfect selectivity of the analysis. The results
