    Abstract

    A simple effective method of inverse estimation provided by model Green's functions is examined to calibrate tides in a regional circulation model for the East Asian marginal seas. The Green's function optimization derived by perturbing the model parameters significantly improves the estimate relative to observation as compared with baseline integration. Among the optimized model parameters, the largest effects on cost function reduction come first from the harmonic constant of M 2 along the open boundaries with the optimized values of 89.7 ± 0.8% for amplitude, and second from the bottom friction with the optimized value of (3.06 ± 0.08) × 10 -3.
