Resumo: Using hydrodynamic and thermodynamic equations appropriate for modelling internal tides, one can predict the current and temperature distributions associated with the ocean's dynamic modes. Comparing such predictions with observations from the INTIMATE'96 experiment, we nd a high degree of correlation between the rst 3 theoretically calculated dynamic modes and corresponding empirical orthogonal functions (EOF's) derived from an ensemble of temperature and current pro les. The implications are twofold. First, this implies that the dominant variability in the INTIMATE'96 experiment is indeed associated with internal tides. Secondly, it suggests that in future tidal experiments a theoretically generated basis may be used as e ectively as an EOF basis (which requires more extensive oceanographic measurements). We have also used the set of dynamic modes to simulate the e ect of the tides on acoustic propagation to understand the relative importance of the usual surface tide (barotropic) and the internal (baroclinic) tides.
