LATERAL DISTRIBUTIONS OF WATER, SALT, AND SEDIMENT TRANSPORT IN A PARTLY MIXED ESTUARY

R.J. Uncles, R.C.A. Elliott, S.A. Weston

Abstract


The transverse structure of the residual transport of water, salt and suspended sediment in the upper reaches of the Tamar Estuary is investigated. Data were obtained at three cross-sections for spring and neap tides. The transport for each variable is analyzed in terms of the governing physical processes.

Keywords
