Abstract : The main part of the study is concerned with the analytical theory of harbor oscillations. The harbor system is composed of coast lines, basins and channels connected by narrow passages. The method of matched asymptotics is used to avoid the usual solution of integral equations. Among several geometrical configurations, a harbor with two coupled basins is examined in detail for its physics. In a supplement a semi-empirical model theory is developed to study losses at the harbor entrance. (Author)
