TIDAL MOTION IN BAYS

O.H. Shemdin, R.M. Forney

Abstract


A method is proposed to investigate periodic tidal motion in single or multiple basins connected to the ocean by an inlet Non-sinusoidal tidal motion in the ocean and square friction law in the inlet are both considered The method is applied to Boca Raton inlet, Florida The calculated tidal elevation and velocity in the inlet are found to be in reasonable agreement with measured values The bottom shear friction coefficient is defined.
