Abstract Tidal bores are a hydraulic phenomenon that is often not well explained and poorly documented. Herein, the writer explains what a tidal bore is, where it occurs, since when it has been observed, how it develops and why the occurrence of a bore has a significant impact on estuarine systems. In particular it is shown that a tidal bore results from a fragile balance between tidal and fluvial conditions, the estuary shape, and the meteorological conditions. Further information is available on the Internet {http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/tid_bore.html} and (http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/mascaret.html}.
