    The Tsugaru Strait, which connects the Sea of Japan with the Pacific Ocean, is characterized by the eastward Tsugaru Warm Current (TWC) and oscillating tidal currents of similar magnitude. A 15-day current observation was conducted in one of the two narrow channels in the strait, at the...

    A high-resolution three-dimensional model of the Clyde Sea and the adjacent North Channel of the Irish Sea is used to compute the major diurnal and semidiurnal tides in the region, the associated energy fluxes and thickness of the bottom boundary layer. Initially, the accuracy of the model is...

    The effect of horizontal grid resolution on the horizontal relative dispersion of particle pairs has been investigated on a short time scale, i.e. one tidal M2 cycle. Of particular interest is the tidal effect on dispersion and transports in coastal waters where small-scale flow features are...

    This paper presents a comparison of two conventional detiding techniques carried out for ship-mounted acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) data collected in the European shelf area of the Celtic Sea during the summer of 1998. One technique consisted of extracting the vertically averaged...

    Ice-drift velocity records from coastal radar stations, combined with data from moored current meters and coastal wind stations, are used to examine sea-ice motion off the northeastern coast of Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Okhotsk. Ice motion is shown to be governed primarily by diurnal tidal...

    Measurements of near-seabed currents at different carbonate mound locations have demonstrated the presence and influence of bottom-magnified diurnal-period tidal motions. These bottom-trapped waves occur at a depth where the product of local vertical density stratification and seabed slope is a...

    The coastal lagoon adjacent to the River Murray mouth has been filling with sediment brought in from the ocean by tidal currents for at least the last 170 years. Recently, reduced river flows have led to an increase in the rate of infilling, and in 2002 a program of dredging commenced in the...

    We sonically tagged and released farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) from a cage site in Cobscook Bay, Maine, USA. The fish were released in January (n =75) and in April and May (n =198) 2004 to study their movement patterns and survival and to assess the possibility of recapturing them....
