Tidal propagation in the St. Lawrence River has been studied using three numerical models. For simulation of the entire 330 mile tidal reach a one-dimensional numerical model was used. A detailed investigation of a smaller section of the river was made using a two-dimensional model. This model was combined with the one-dimensional model to provide convenient boundary conditions. This technique was also used in studying the circulation of the lower estuary with a two-dimensional model. The simulation by the one-dimensional model was considered sufficiently accurate for most engineering purposes being limited mainly by the accuracy of the available field data. The simulation by the two-dimensional models was of an equivalent degree of accuracy except in those areas where marked vertical stratification occurred.
