Ocean TidesProgress in the understanding of ocean tides since the field was reviewed two years ago by Hendershott and Munk [1970] has confirmed their characterization of the field as rapidly developing. The First Geodesy/ Solid‐Earth and Ocean Physics (GEOP) Research Conference on Solid‐ Earth and Ocean Tides provided an opportunity to gather subsequent results and to view them in the context of long‐term trends in the development of the field. This review, therefore, largely picks up where that of Hendershott and Munk [1970] left off; the two reviews together are intended to provide a modern view of our state of understanding of ocean tides. Vital progress in instrumentation, in data analysis, and in the closely related field of solid‐earth tides is outlined in the accompanying summary of conference discussions beginning on page 96 of this issue.
