A mathematical study of the tidal motion in the St. Lawrence River and Estuary is presented. Differential equations, schematization and difference equations are analyzed and a detailed description is given of three separate difference schemes, an explicit model and two implicit ones. The solution of the large matrices resulting from the implicit schemes is detailed at length and the three schemes are compared as to their results and relative advantage.
