    • Hydrodynamic controls on multiple tidal inlet persistence 

      Salles, Paulo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-02)
      The importance of the persistence of multiple inlets in coastal systems is fundamental for issues such as water quality, navigability, and beach/barrier stability. In long embayments, having extended residence times, the ...
    • Tidal distortion in shallow estuaries 

      Speer, Paul E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-03)
      The offshore tide becomes distorted as it propagates into shallow inlet/estuarine systems. Time asymmetries develop in the rise and fall of sea surface with consequent time and magnitude asymmetries in tidal currents. ...
