Short summary
The resonant period of the Gulf of Thailand is potentially close to 1 day. However, the classic quarter-wavelength resonant theory fails to give a diurnal resonant period. In this study, we first perform a series of numerical experiments showing that the resonance of the South China Sea body has a critical impact on the resonance of the gulf. An idealised two-channel model that can reasonably explain the dynamics of the tidal resonance in the Gulf of Thailand is then established in this study.
The resonant period of the Gulf of Thailand is potentially close to 1 day. However, the classic...
