Laplace’s tidal equations are solved for the M2 and S2 tides in the world oceans on the basis of a knowledge of the tidal potential alone. Tidal dissipation was taken to be limited to the coastline, where a fraction of the tidal energy incident on the coast was assumed to be absorbed. The coast was assumed to be either vertical or to have a sloping shelf, the latter model yielding results in better agreement with observations. The main purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects… Expand
