  • TIDAL BORES, AEGIR, EAGRE, MASCARET, POROROCAby Hubert Chanson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 81.00

    A tidal bore is a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It forms during spring tide conditions when the tidal range exceeds 4 to 6 m and the flood tide is confined to a narrow funnelled estuary. Its existence is based upon a fragile hydrodynamic balance between the tidal amplitude, the freshwater river flow conditions... more...
