MSEAS Barotropic Tidal Predictions

Barotropic tidal estimates are obtained from the solution of shallow water equations over high resolution bathymetry. The computational code is described in Logutov (2008) and Logutov and Lermusiaux (2008). More information on the barotropic tidal calculations can be found on our tidal web page.

The barotropic tidal flow field over the period 18 Aug 00Z - 16 Sep 00Z is shown in the set of movies found here
