Abstract

Co-tidal and co-range charts of eight major constituent tides in the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea are drawn from the results of the harmonic analysis of TOPEX/POSEIDON altimetric data. Those of M2, S2, K1 and O1 constituents agree well with the traditional ones estimated from tide gauge data at coastal stations. Those Of N2 and K2 are similar to those of M2 constituent and those of P1 are similar to K1 constituent, respectively. The amplitude of Sa constituent is large and its phase leads in the shallow part of the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea. The altimetric data from TOPEX/POSEIDON manifest very useful not only in the open ocean dynamics study but also in the coastal ocean dynamics study including tidal phenomena.
