LocationGreat Bay, NH
Durg 1992 and 1993 experiments were conducted in the shallow east side of Great Bay, New Hampshire. These experiments were conducted to better understand the morphodynamics and evolutionary tendencies of shallow tidal embayments and intertidal fiats. Hardware and software used in the collection of data are described. Discussed also are techniques used to collect data. Six pressure temperature loggers (PTL) and one current meter (TCSWG) were developed for the experiments. Both instruments are internally powered and internally recording. The instruments were developed because no company was found that manufactured a similar instrument within the price range of the project.

Redfield, Alfred C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1950-07)The tides of coastal embayments derive their energy from the ocean tides rather than from the direct action of lunar and solar gravitational forces. They are considered to be part of co-oscilating systems in which the ...
