This paper presents a neural network

model of simulating tides at multi points
considering tide generating forces. A comparison on the root mean square and correlation
coefficient of three year mixe
d tides at a single point computed with harmonic method,
response
-
orthotide method,
the
NAO.99b model and the proposed model was made to show
the prediction accuracy of each method. The proposed model is examined efficient as the
harmonic method to estimat
e the tides at a single point. Extended application of the proposed
model to predicting tides at some points neighboring to an original interest point identifies
accurately simulating multi
-
point tides as the NAO.99b numerical model.
