Example figures: mean ebb current velocity

From BAWiki

Explanations

  • left top: value of characteristic number for a single event.
  • left bottom: mean value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
  • right top: maximum value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
  • right bottom: minimum value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.

Remark: The mean value is only computed at locations where all events have occurred within the period of data analysis.

Examples

mean ebb current velocity mean ebb current velocity (maximum)
mean ebb current velocity of one specific tide
maximum value of mean ebb current velocity within the period of data analysis
mean ebb current velocity (mean) mean ebb current velocity (minimum)
mean value of mean ebb current velocity within the period of data analysis
minimum value of mean ebb current velocity within the period of data analysis


Remark: Magnitude corresponds to the mean value of all ebb current velocity magnitudes. Direction gives mean flow direction during ebb current. Mean ebb current velocity is always larger or equal than residual ebb current velocity.
