dc.description.abstract An application of a two-dimensional tidal model to study the tidal regime in the Gulf of Kutch is made. This is with a view to synthesise various information on tides and currents that are available in the Gulf. A comparison of surface elevations obtained from the model simulations at the locations Sikka, Mundra, Kandla and Navalakhi shows that the model reproduces the amplitudes and phases close to the observations. The modelled currents are also found to be accurate in magnitudes and phases, when compared with the moored current meter observations at a few locations such as off Navinar and Vadinar. The model results are used to study the tidal circulation in the Gulf. These results encourage us to look into the dynamical aspects such as the momentum balance and causes of amplification of the tides, which are dealt in a future paper.
