The Severn Estuary has been proposed as a site for a tidal power generating barrage. The character of the existing environment would be changed but, if the risks of accumulating pollutants and eutrophication can be avoided, the reduction in turbidity and tidal scour could increase species...
A tidal power barrage will locally reduce the rise and fall of water level in the reservoir it creates when it produces electricity from the energy of the tides. This Paper sets out the character and principal effects of such a physical change, and indicates the possible influence of these...
In Great Britain there have been several proposals in recent years for the construction of freshwater reservoirs in bays and estuaries. Two of these have been the subject of feasibility studies. The results of the ecological parts of these studies on Morecambe Bay and the Wash are outlined,...
Some concepts of hydrochemical water quality in estuaries are discussed from the point of view of time and space. The relations of metal and other substances with chloride as conservative property are questioned with respect to time, space and presence of particulate matter. Some examples are...
