Short summary
The Korea Strait is a major navigation passage linking the Japan Sea to the East China Sea and Yellow Sea. This paper establishes a theoretical model for the tides in the Korea Strait and Japan Sea using the extended Taylor method. The model solution explains the formation mechanism of the tidal amphidromic systems in the Korea Strait, and why the K1 amphidromic point is located farther away from the shelf break separating the Korea Strait and Japan Sea in comparison to the M2 amphidromic point.
