Tidal ratios outside and inside the Bay of Fundy/Gulf of Maine system fall into two distinct groups. The period of the free mode oscillation in the bay is 13.3 h, and this is forced by the lunar M2 tide of the North Atlantic to produce the unusually high tides recorded in the area. 
Tides and tidal power in the Bay of Fundy
Abstract The Bay of Fundy in Eastern Canada has the highest tides in the world, with a range from low tide to high tide that can exceed 15 m in Minas Basin at the head of the Bay. Interest in
Nodal Modulation of the Lunar Semidiurnal Tide in the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine
Observations, numerical modeling, and theoretical calculations show how the 18.6-year modulation of the main lunar semidiurnal tide in the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine is reduced from its
A numerical model investigation of tidal phenomena in the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine
A numerical model is developed to examine tidal properties of the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine. The model is run with a pure M2 tidal input on the open boundary, and calibrated by adjusting the

Natural and Anthropogenic Changes in the Bay of Fundy — Gulf of Maine — Georges Bank System
The turbid, macrotidal estuaries of the Bay of Fundy system and the coastal waters of the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank have undergone considerable change as a result of the natural processes of sea
Tidally Driven Interannual Variation in Extreme Sea Level Frequencies in the Gulf of Maine
Astronomical variations in tidal magnitude can strongly modulate the severity of coastal flooding on daily, monthly, and interannual timescales. Here, we present a new quasi-nonstationary skew surg...
The Potential of Tidal Power from the Bay of Fundy
Large tidal currents exist in the Minas Passage, which connects the Minas Basin to the Bay of Fundy off the north-western coast of Nova Scotia. The strong currents through this deep, narrow channel
Standing waves in the Gulf of Finland and their relationship to the basin‐wide Baltic seiches
A linear shallow-water model was used to study different harmonic oscillations in the Baltic Sea. The model was initialized using a linear sea-surface slope from east to west, and was hereafter run
Changes of tides in Isahaya Bay due to a barrier
A regional ocean tide model was designed to cover an area that is broad in scope and size, yet also provide a high degree of resolution for scientific and engineering interests. Using this model

Tidal Resonance and Tidal Barriers in the Bay of Fundy System
A near-resonant mode of oscillation extending to the continental shelf in the Gulf of Maine is shown to be a contributing factor in the extreme high M2 tidal ranges in the Bay of Fundy.The effect on
Modification of the M2 Tide due to Barriers in the Bay of Fundy
The one-dimensional channel equations with linear bottom friction are integrated numerically to determine the modification of the M2 tide for several cases of barriers in the bay. The barriers are
Effect of Tidal Barriers Upon the M2 Tide in the Bay of Fundy
A model was constructed for the M2 tide in the Bay of Fundy, in which the two-dimensional hydrodynamical equations with quadratic friction were integrated in time. After calibration tests, in which

The one-dimensional channel equations are integrated numerically to determine the periods and structures of the lowest three longitudinal modes of free oscillations of the Bay of Fundy. It is found
Theory of the Exploitation of Tidal Energy and Its Application to the Bay of Fundy
TLDR
The concept of power transfer arises immediately, which enables one to follow the transit of power from one part of the basin to another, and makes it possible to establish a balance of the power present in the basin.
Energy Considerations in the Bay of Fundy System
TLDR
Following developments of Taylor, Allard and Redfield, the rates at which energy is dissipated in the Bay of Fundy in various ways are calculated and the effect which the extraction of additional power from the system would have on tidal ranges is evaluated.
