Amplitude Delta Factors and Phase Shifts of Tidal Waves for the Earth with the Ocean on the Territory of Russia

The results of the calculation of the amplitude delta factors and phase shifts of semidiurnal and diurnal tidal waves for a rotating self-gravitating ellipsoidal inelastic Earth with the ocean are presented, and the method used to calculate them is briefly described. The maps of distribution of the considered tidal parameters are constructed for the M2 and K1 waves over the territory of Russia; the zones with extreme and generally accepted values are identified. A discussion of the revealed features of the distribution of the amplitude factors and phase shifts on the territory of the Russian Federation is presented.
