  • Hydrodynamics and morphodynamics of shallow tidal channels and intertidal flats 

    Friedrichs, Carl T. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-02)
    In this thesis, mechanisms which control morphodynamics of shallow tidal embayments are investigated analytically. In the process of exploring these mechanisms (specifically asymmetries in bottom stress, τ), basis momentum ...
  • Stratification on the Skagit Bay tidal flats 

    Pavel, Vera L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-09)
    Estuarine density stratification may be controlled primarily by cross-shore processes (analogous to longitudinal control in narrow estuaries), or by both cross- and alongshore processes (typical of coastal plumes). Here ...
