Abstract : A numerical tidal model using equations developed by Hansen (1952) and Yuen (1967) is automated to the point where the potential user need not undertaken extensive reprogramming. The user adds to the program only those cards needed to specify tides at input points as a function of time; the application of the relevant calculations at each grid point being controlled by an integer matrix that corresponds to the inlet boundary. A sample problem is covered in detail and applications of the model to the M2 tide of the Gulf of California and to a hypothetical mean tide in Cook Inlet are shown. (Author)
