FLOW AREA PREDICTION OF TIDAL INLETS AFTER SEA LEVEL RISE

Hideo Kondo

Abstract


An approach to predict flow area of constricted tidal inlets due to a mean sea level rise is developed. Increase of bay surface area is found to be the most dominant factor to increase the flow area due to SLR. A case study is conducted for an entrance channel of Lake Notoro in the Okhotsk coast.
