I have an ADCIRC mesh whose open ocean boundary extends from Maine, through the Gulf of Maine into deep water, and ends near Delaware Bay. I am having two problems assigning tidal boundary conditions (I'm using SMS 10.0.3).

(1) When applying the LeProvost tides from the Model Control/Tidal tab, all the boundary nodes along the first 100 km from the coast of Maine to the middle of the Gulf of Maine (in 100 to 200 m of water) have zero tidal amplitudes and phases. This occurs for any constituent. Is this a known problem with shallow water application of the LeProvost tides? Any suggestions?

(2) When trying to apply the ADCIRC tides from the Model Control/Tidal tab, a tide acquisition program seems to abort (the initial error window is only displayed for a second). The message says something like

The "tides.in" file appears correct, but the "tides.out" file is empty, and another error window appears with the message "Error reading tides.out file". I've re-downloaded the ADCIRC tidal database from the ems-i ftp site, and have checked the file locations in the Preferences menu. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, -- Mark
