ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF THE EBB SIDE AND FLOOD SIDE OF TIDAL ESTUARIES AS A FACTOR IN HARBOR LOCATIONS

Abstract


In a previous paper presented at the Second Conference on Coastal Engineering concerning the environmental aspects of harbors, mention was made of the fact that owing to the differences between the ebb and flood side of an estuary, the ebb side presented certain advantages which might make it the more suitable location for a harbor. No expanded discussion was attempted at that time, but the problem seemed to be of sufficient interest to warrant further study.
