Cook Inlet, especially Knik Arm, Alaska, because of its strategic location represents an important but little understood resource to the State of Alaska. Its dominant hydraulic characteristics are the 30 foot tidal range, large (up to 8 knots) tidal currents, an unusual geometric configuration, and a large glacial sediment load. A one-dimensional finite difference computer model of the Inlet and Arm which calculates the flows and water surface elevations was constructed as a beginning effort in understanding the nature of the tidal hydraulic phenomena.
