Abstract:

An algorithm, suitable for use on most computers, for obtaining solutions to Laplaces tidal equations for tides of longitudinal wave number one and of arbitrary period is described. Relevant proofs are included and a comparison is made between the equivalent depths found by this method and by those of Kato and Lindzen. A computer flow chart for the basic program is also given.
