Finite element grid refinements with different intensities having 14 K, 52 K and 211 K on the Yellow Sea (YS) have been constructed to make precise tidal simulations. In the meanwhile 57 K grid was made to the extended North Western Pacific (NWP) sea. Numerical simulation were done based on 32 parallel processors by using pADCIRC v 49.21 model. In the YS tidal simulation on YS-G52K and YS-G211K grid structure, KorBathy30s and ETOPO1 bathymetry data are used and 4 major tidal constituents are prescribed from FES2004. Computed results are in good agreement within 0.138 meter in RMS error for amplification and 14.80 degree of phase compared to observed tidal records. Similar error bounds are acquired in the extended NWP tidal simulation on NWP-G57K grid with 8 tidal constituent prescription on the open boundary.
