1."Tidal Hydraulic Engineering" by S N Ghosh
2."Elements of Tidal–Electric Engineering (IEEE Press Series on Power Engineering)" by Robert H Clark
“Elements of Tidal–Electric Engineering (IEEE Press Series on Power Engineering)” Book Review: The book is designed to provide power engineers with the necessary skills to conduct a thorough tidal-electric feasibility study. It covers all stages of the process, from understanding tidal power schemes and modes to evaluating hydraulic and mathematical models of estuaries. Additionally, the book includes topics such as civil works required for tidal power development, the associated equipment, procedures for optimizing plant output, and economic evaluation and risk assessment. Furthermore, it examines the environmental impact of proposed construction and operation, referencing primary source materials and commercially operating plants. In short, this book is a comprehensive guide for power engineers seeking to accurately determine the feasibility of a proposed tidal power development plan.

3."CFD for Wind and Tidal Offshore Turbines (Springer Tracts in Mechanical Engineering)" by Esteban Ferrer and Adeline Montlaur
4."High Order Wind and Tidal Cross-Flow Turbines" by Ferrer Esteban
5."Tidal System of Drainage: For Upper Wards of Charleston, South-Carolina (Classic Reprint)" by Dr Charles Parker
6."Modelling Morphological Response of Large Tidal Inlet Systems to Sea Level Rise: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis" by Pushpa Kumara Dissanayake
“Modelling Morphological Response of Large Tidal Inlet Systems to Sea Level Rise: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis” Book Review: This book is a remarkable PhD thesis that focuses on studying the impact of sea level rise on tidal inlet systems. The thesis is divided into several chapters, covering topics such as coastal processes, numerical modeling techniques, sediment transport, and morphological changes. Dissanayake’s research provides valuable insights into understanding and predicting how tidal inlet systems will respond to future sea level rise. This thesis serves as a valuable resource for researchers and professionals involved in coastal management and climate change adaptation.

7."Tidal Inlets: Hydrodynamics and Morphodynamics" by J van de Kreeke and R L Brouwer
“Tidal Inlets: Hydrodynamics and Morphodynamics” Book Review: The focus of this book is on the latest advances in hydrodynamics and morphodynamics of tidal inlets, with an emphasis on natural inlets. It provides a comprehensive overview of morphological characteristics and sand transport pathways. Furthermore, it discusses the empirical relationships between inlet cross-sectional area, ebb delta volume, flood delta volume, and tidal prism. Field observations and laboratory experiments are presented and analyzed. The book also includes straightforward mathematical models to compute the inlet current and basin tide. This publication is targeted towards coastal scientists, engineers, and researchers in the fields of coastal engineering, geomorphology, marine geology, and oceanography.

8."Intertidal Deposits: River Mouths, Tidal Flats, and Coastal Lagoons (CRC Marine Science)" by Doeke Eisma
9."Water, Wave, and Tidal Power (Let's Discuss Energy Resources)" by Richard Spilsbury
