Note(s): The combined influence of the tidal phase, amplitude, and mean sea-level differences on the generation of tidal residual currents in a channel is complex and non-linear, and can be predicted properly only by non-linear numerical models. The sediment transport patterns in a tidal channel that connects two bodies of water having different tidal characteristics can be attributed to residual currents that is primarily caused by the mean sea-level difference, and to a minor degree, by the tidal amplitude and phase differences between the two ends of the channel. Multiple inlets at Chatham, Massachusetts, are used as a case study.
