Using Synergia accelerator modeling package and Dynamic Mode Decomposition technique, the properties of the first transverse dipole mode in Gaussian bunches with space charge are compared at transverse coupling resonance and off-resonance. The Landau damping at coupling resonance and in the strong space charge regime is a factor of two larger, while the mode's tune and shape are nearly the same. While the damping mechanism in the off-resonance case fits well with the classical Landau damping
