The modelling process developed for building up ocean tide charts for the Mediterranean Sea is presented. These models are based on a considerable number of non-singular tide gauge stations regularly distributed in combination with the study of particular hydrodymamical response of different ocean basins to the tidal forces as well as to the meteorological perturbations. The results obtained at the moment for the five main diurnal and semidiurnal constituents are discussed. This paper concludes with the evaluation of the tidal vertical displacement of the Sea Surface Topography in order to obtain a first approximation of an ideal mean sea-level corresponding to the equilibrium surface of an ocean without external perturbations. It allows us also to determine the necessary correction to the satellite altimeter measurements.
