Abstract:

The establishment and maintenance of marine structures and near-shore constructions together require having sufficient and accurate information about sea level variations not only in the present time but also in the near future as a reliable prediction. It is therefore necessary to analyze and predict Mean Sea Level (MSL) for a specific time considering all possible effects which may modify the accuracy and precision of the results. This study presents tidal harmonic decomposition solutions based on the first and second method of solving the Fourier series to analyze of the tides in January 2010 hourly and predict for the whole days of 2012 year considering the astronomical arguments and nodal corrections in Bandar-e-Abbas, Kangan Port and Bushehr Port tide gauge stations located in the Persian Gulf at the South of Iran. Moreover the accurate predictions of Mean Tide Level (MTL) are provided for the entire of 2012 year in each tide gauge station by excluding the effects of astronomical arguments and nodal corrections due to their unreasonable destroying effects. The MTL's fluctuations derived from the predicted results during 2012 year and different phases of the Moon show a very good agreement together according to tide-generating forces theories.
