Aircraft and sea-truth observations of salinity and temperature within the Tweed Estuary and coastal-zone frontal system
Results are presented of frontal phenomena in the Tweed Estuary, UK. Salinity distributions in the lower estuary were particularly complex and salinity stratification was strong. Large areas of high salinity waters abutted waters of much lower salinity with the formation of distinct frontal systems. These systems were largely controlled by the bathymetry of the region, especially the shoal and inlet morphologies. Sea-truth and remote sensing observations allowed the high-resolution, spatial determination of surface temperature and salinity fields within the frontal regions.
