Abstract

The tide in estuaries drives a turbulent slowly-oscillating flow. To investigate the effects of wind and density stratification on such flows, we have performed Large Eddy Simulations in a cubic fluid column of depth h. The velocity field u is obtained from the Navier-Stokes equation under the Boussinesq approximation,
