The reliability of a numerical tide model for detiding acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) data is examined on the East China Sea shelf. The process is adopted for the ADCP data obtained on 12-13 May 2003. The ocean model accompanied by the most precise harmonic constants available to public is used to compute external tides. The root mean square difference is less than 10 cm/s between the detided currents and those using the least squares method, and so the detiding process using the numerical model is available to detect the East China Sea shelf circulation faster than this speed.
