A study of tides in the Gulf of Mexico is proposed as part of the program for Gulf Science Year (1970). There are several existing hypotheses explaining the diurnal tides in the gulf. These are described and discussed and a new hypothesis is suggested. The semidiurnal tides are generally small, and therefore have had less attention; nevertheless, there are several hypotheses that are quite contradictory. A program of tide and tidal current observations is proposed which should permit discrimination among the various hypotheses.
