Preface: Developments in the science and history of tides
Abstract. This special issue marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Liverpool Tidal Institute (LTI), one of a number of important scientific developments in 1919. The preface gives a

Chapter 7 100 Years of the Ocean General Circulation
The central change in understanding of the ocean circulation during the past 100 years has been its emergence as an intensely time-dependent, effectively turbulent and wave-dominated, flow. Early
Manuel Johnson's tide record at St. Helena
Abstract. The astronomer Manuel Johnson, a future President of the Royal Astronomical Society, recorded the ocean tides with his own instrument at St. Helena in 1826–1827, while waiting for an
New Determinations of the Ages of Tide in the North Atlantic Ocean
Ages of tide provide relevant information about the spatial distribution of existing anomalies in the normal modes of the oceans, because a delay may be associated with bottom friction energy

Tidal Constituents of Modern and Ancient Tidal Rhythmites: Criteria for Recognition and Analyses
A better understanding of tidal cycles opens up remarkable opportunities for research on tidal deposits with implications for a more complete understanding of the tidal dynamics responsible for sediment transport and deposition, tectonic-induced changes in paleogeographies, and changes in Earth–Moon distance through time.
An Improbable Observation of the Diurnal Core Resonance

The resonance associated with the ellipticity of the core-mantle boundary is usually measured with observations of either the Earth’s nutations, or of tidal gravity, strain, or tilt. But, improbably,
