Short summary
The resonant period of the Gulf of Thailand is potentially close to 1 day. However, the classic quarter-wavelength resonant theory fails to give a diurnal resonant period. In this study, we first perform a series of numerical experiments showing that the resonance of the South China Sea body has a critical impact on the resonance of the gulf. An idealised two-channel model that can reasonably explain the dynamics of the tidal resonance in the Gulf of Thailand is then established in this study.
