Isosurfaces of equal advective residual transport of salt are shown for a period comprising several tidal cycles (mean value within the period of data analysis). Arrows are superpositioned. They indicate the mean direction of the (eulerian) residual transport. The residual advective transport of salt is closely related to the sum of the vectors for [[Example: Advective Flood Transport of Salt in the Inner Außenweser|advective flood transport of salt]] and for [[Example: Advective Ebb Transport of Salt in the Inner Außenweser|advective ebb transport of salt]]. Two phenomena can be clearly distinguished. At first there is a net transport of salt from the Jade Estuary (left edge of the figure) in northeast direction towards the Außenweser. Secondly along the deep channel (see [[Example: Bathymetry of the Inner Außenweser|bathymetry]]) two individual transport paths can be clearly distinguished. Along the western slope of the channel a landward residual transport of salt does occur whereas along the eastern slope a compensating seaward residual transport of salt can be found. There is strong evidence that this separation is mainly caused by the Coriolis force which acts to the right when looking in flow direction. Therefore the flood current follows the western slope of the channel whereas the ebb is shifted towards the eastern slope.

==Motivation==
 +
The calculation as well as the graphic visualization of various tidal characteristic numbers of temperature and also for the advective transport of heat contributes to an improved understanding of tidally dominated transport processes in estuaries. Spatial variations of temperature, advective transport of heat by means of flood and ebb currents can be highlighted for areas like coastal seas and estuaries as well.

* As the calculations are performed separately for the durations of ebb- and flood-current it can be shown that transport paths can differ significantly for the two tidal phases. From this one can get additional insight with respect to the relevant transport mechanisms dominated by the tidal currents. This can be related to locally varying flood-ebb asymmetries for ebb volume and flood volume. Also the presence of horizontal gradients can contribute to this effect.
 +
 
 +
* The variation of temperature resulting from the local maximum as well as the local minimum of temperature can be quite large. This is a consequence of the different temperature of e.g. sea and fresh water. The value for the local temperature variation is mainly the result of the product between the horizontal temperature gradient and the lagrangian drift of a water particle during a complete tidal cycle.

Motivation

The calculation as well as the graphic visualization of various tidal characteristic numbers of temperature and also for the advective transport of heat contributes to an improved understanding of tidally dominated transport processes in estuaries. Spatial variations of temperature, advective transport of heat by means of flood and ebb currents can be highlighted for areas like coastal seas and estuaries as well.

  • As the calculations are performed separately for the durations of ebb- and flood-current it can be shown that transport paths can differ significantly for the two tidal phases. From this one can get additional insight with respect to the relevant transport mechanisms dominated by the tidal currents. This can be related to locally varying flood-ebb asymmetries for ebb volume and flood volume. Also the presence of horizontal gradients can contribute to this effect.
  • The variation of temperature resulting from the local maximum as well as the local minimum of temperature can be quite large. This is a consequence of the different temperature of e.g. sea and fresh water. The value for the local temperature variation is mainly the result of the product between the horizontal temperature gradient and the lagrangian drift of a water particle during a complete tidal cycle.

An automatic analysis of all tidal characteristic numbers of temperature is carried through by the computer programs TDKSF and NCANALYSE.
