Abstract


ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to describe the amplitude of the tidal harmonic constituents M2, S2, K1, and O1 in waters around the city of Bitung in North Sulawesi.  Calculations performed using the admiralty method.  Based on calculations, it was found that the average amplitude of M2 is 34.8, S2 is 22.5, K1 is 20.3, and O1 is 11.7. The tidal behaviour in the study area is mixed tide predominant semidiurnal, with average Formzahl number of about 0.6.

Keywords : amplitude, tidal, Bitung

 

ABSTRAK
