WAVE CLIMATE STUDY In THE REGION OF THE EAST FRISIAN ISLANDS AND COAST

Hanz Dieter Niemeyer

Abstract


The East Frisian Islands and Coast - located at the southern border of the North-Sea - are significantly characterized by a chain of off-shore islands which are separated from the mainland by wide spread tidal flats (FIG.1). Between the islands there are small and deep tidal inlets with strong currents, through which the tidal volume covering the flats is streaming in and out, with a tidal range of about 2,5 m.
