Description: National Oceanography Centre, Southampton SO14 3ZH, UK. The resonances of Hudson Bay, Foxe Basin and Hudson Strait are investigated using a~linear shallow water numerical model. The region is of particular interest because it is the most important region of the world ocean for dissipating tidal energy.

The model shows that the semi-diurnal tides of the region are dominated by four nearby overlapping resonances. It shows that these not only affect Ungava Bay, a region of extreme tidal range, but they also extend far into Foxe Basin and Hudson Bay and appear to be affected by the geometry of those regions. The results also indicate that it is the four resonances acting together which make the region such an important area for dissipating tidal energy.
