Short summary
Harmonic constants of tides and tidal currents are obtained from long-term observations. Diurnal tides and tidal currents dominate in southern Natuna Sea and Karimata and Gaspar straits. Existing numerical model results are not accurate in the study area. Existing tidal models based on satellite observation need to be improved for the area.
