The mathematical beauty in my work is involved in the equations that I use to describe the ocean flowing through a tidal channel full of turbines.
A number of factories from the Korangi and Landhi industrial areas, and the nearby Cattle Colony constantly discharge industrial effluent, and solid and liquid waste into this tidal channel, whose name is familiar to most Karachi residents.
The scope of work includes clearing and grubbing, dredging, replenishing beach sand dredge material, enhancing tidal channel, and constructing transitional wetland areas and a nesting site.
The project works include construction of a bridge/causeway over the tidal channel that drains the area between the reclamation area and the New Port area.

He identified four events in the Caballos Formation deposition, the lower unit consisting of fluvial deposits with lower tidal influence (see at right of Figure 6), which grades toward estuarine deposits formed in tidal channels and tidal flats overlain by tidal channel deposits, which are eventually were eroded and overlying by deposits of mouth bar.
Kolleru still maintains its connection with the Bay of Bengal through a 60 km long, intricately meandering tidal channel called Upputeru.
He knew the quick ways into town, where to find the best beach and when to cross the tidal channel separating a little harbour from a long spit of sand.
If the bottom of the tidal channel is at elevation F, and a velocity head h is required to move water at a certain speed v, over the flat, then the depth D, in the channel is:
This data was integrated with tidal hydrodynamic data in order to develop mean SSC with respect to tidal phase and to approximate suspended sediment flux through each tidal channel. The effect of tidal range, rainfall and seasonal variability on SSC and fluxes were determined.
