Analytic models of Rockall Bank have been used in a theoretical investigation of the tidal currents over the bank. It is found that the diurnal tides are close to the natural frequency of an approximately non-divergent wave trapped near the bank and progressing clockwise around it. Currents observed over Rockall Bank by dRamster (1970) and Collar and Cartwright (1972) are interpreted in terms of such a wave.
