Hi  Weiyang!

According to our experience in solving the same problem with MITgcm, the
only method implemented in the model is prescribing the tidal velocity at
the open boundaries. We also tried setting the tidal level oscillations,
but with no result.

Also, you may find interesting the following thread:
