The recorded salinity of the water column during a tidal cycle
exhibits a vertically homogeneous saline structure in the mouth (Fig.
They become evident as small amplitude periodic disturbances that were observed throughout the tidal cycle
Water flow through the channels was characterized through repeated measurements of current velocity over 6 complete tidal cycles
(ebb and flood).
ADCP N2 was located southwest of the ice bridge, where the tidal cycle
caused periodic switching of the current from north to south at approximately 12-hour intervals (Melling et al.
Foraging area fidelity of individual seabirds in relation to tidal cycles
and flock feeding.
The fortnightly tidal cycle
in the Richmond River micro-tidal estuary had little influence on suspended sediment concentration under normal tidal circulation.
Similarly, a Lower High Water and a Lower Low Water occur during a day-long tidal cycle
Over a tidal cycle
, we observed net landward fluxes of TSS and POC, indicating that Winyah Bay is flood-dominated during low discharge, resulting in significant OM inputs from the lower reach of the bay towards the ETM.
Results from a further run of one tidal cycle
are then analysed to extract amplitudes and phases at various locations (Foreman, 1977).
While those analyses show that settlement was concentrated during part of that tidal cycle
during each period (1981-1982: Rayleigh Z = 13.
This approach is then employed to explicitly and quantitatively dissect the role of the tidal cycle
in determining the timing of aerial exposure and hence body temperatures.
This was demonstrated forcefully several years ago when the Fundy tidal cycle
reached its peak.
