A hybrid modelling technique which involves the integration of numerical and physical models has been used to study tide induced circulation in Singapore coastal waters. The modelling strategy utilizes a numerical model for the far-field phenomena and a physical model for the study of near-field hydrodynamics of coastal waters southeast of Singapore. Comparison of the results of numerical and physical model with the field measurements of water levels and currents showed good agreement. Further the results of numerical simulations trajectory are found to be consistent with the physical model results.
