Tidal fluid mechanics associated with a global ocean are investigated using numerical analysis and computer simulation. Tidal waves, with their shallow water wave characteristics, are shown to be perfect candidates for the role of sediment transport and deposition associated with the buildup of thick sequences of sedimentary strata. The global ocean in the tidal context is shown to be near resonance which, if present, would augment the load-carrying ability of the tidal waves. Pertinent variables of fluid friction, ocean depth, and bottom relief are studied to ascertain their role in the tidal action in a global ocean.
