On the shelf resonances of the English Channel and Irish Sea

Abstract. The resonances of the English Channel and Irish Sea are investigated using the methods of Webb (2012a) together with an Arakawa C-grid model of the region under study. In the semi-diurnal tidal band, the high tides of the Bristol Channel and Gulf of St. Malo are shown to be due to two shelf resonances which strongly couple the two regions. In the diurnal band, the response is complicated by the presence of continental shelf waves.
