The Suwannee River estuary is shallow (water depth <2.2 m below mean sea level), and has semidiurnal
tides with a tidal range of 0.7 m.
Tides in and near the inlets of the APES are generally semidiurnal
, with a mean vertical range of 5 cm when averaged across Pamlico Sound (Roelofs & Bumpus 1953) to 30 cm in Core Sound (Dudley & Judy 1973).
The tidal regime is semidiurnal
, presenting a 2.2 m mean tidal range and a 5.4 m average depth (Lana et al, 2001).
directly observed groundwater level) into four components: barometric response (BAR), diurnal and semidiurnal
tidal response (TID), low-frequency component (LFC), and high-frequency non-tidal residuals (HFR).
This area is an exposed sandy beach habitat (McLachlan, 1990) that experiences semidiurnal
The maximum tidal range at the mouth of the Swan River Estuary is small, i.e., [less than or equal to] 0.8 m, and tides can be diurnal or semidiurnal
, depending on the time of year (Spencer, 1956).
Larval dispersal was simulated using a Lagrangian scheme (Burwell 2001, Meyers & Luther 2008) composed of a forward Eulerian scheme with a very small time step (15 sec) relative to the dominant diurnal and semidiurnal
This estuarial area has a semidiurnal
tidal regime with an extreme amplitude tide, 9.5 m spring tide and 5.4 m neap tides (Piccolo & Perillo, 1997).
Periodic diurnal and semidiurnal
fluctuations related to tidal effects.
Tides were semidiurnal
in the Gulf of Mexico, ranging 1.3 m in tidal level in the study area.
The tides here are semidiurnal
, and the tidal range is about -0.2 to 0.9 m (mean low water).
Mean tidal ranges are 2.5 m at spring tide and 1.0 m at neap tide, with a semidiurnal
tidal cycle (the tide gauge station is indicated as a black-filled square point in Fig.
