Abstract

A numerical finite-difference model using the Laplace tidal equations on an f-plane was developed to predict how tidal motion is disturbed by an elliptic ridge. With the use of an open-ocean matching condition the model was used to study the effects of several generalized types of elliptic bottom topographies and to study the particular case of the Hawaiian Ridge.
