Results of this study revealed that the abundance of shorebirds was influenced by the tidal cycle.
The time of larval release by subtidal crustaceans is not random; it is related to diel and tidal cycles (reviewed by Forward, 1987; Morgan, 1995; Christy, 2011).
5 m range and maximum range, respectively) were calculated using profile measurements throughout the estuary for a complete tidal cycle (Fig.
When rivers and the ocean are permanently connected (regular estuaries), mixing of water occurs in a continuum, and therefore, is closely related to the tidal cycles.

The sounds created by the handcrafted instruments will respond to the changing nature of the River Tyne, using sensors to test how the water changes over the course of the tidal cycle.
The calculation of the pulmonary time constant is essential in determining the tidal cycle indispensably important for avoiding dynamic hyperinflation and ventilator induced or associated injury.
Finally, to confirm that water flow varied between the 2 channel designs (ambient- and low-flow channels), current velocities were analyzed using a 1-way repeated-measures ANOVA with velocity at hour 0 through hour 12 of the tidal cycle used as the repeated measures.
Each tidal cycle brings nutrient-rich water from the continental slope up onto the shelf, establishing the current and nutrient conditions ideal for suspension feeders.
