    tidal bore A high, often breaking wave generated by a tide crest that advances rapidly up an estuary or river. tidal current Mass flow of water induced by the raising or lowering of sea level owing to passage of tidal crests or troughs. See also ebb current; flood current. tidal datum The reference level () from which tidal height is measured. Tidal bore is the term used to describe the violent encounter between the waters of a river and the waves of the high tide. Usually this encounter occurs in relation to the phase changes on the moon, mainly between the full and new moons. The result of this is the rise in the level of oceanic waters, which can invade rivers, or form giant waves.

    During spring tides, the gravity of the sun and moon pull on the Earth either from the same direction or from opposite directions, producing higher tidal ranges. During neap tides, the sun and moon are at right angles with respect to Earth.

    CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Internal tidal bore warm fronts were observed during the summer of off the coast of Southern California. Warm bore fronts had concentrating currents resulting from high-frequency internal motions and from a larger twoway flow; the two-way flow featured surface currents onshore and bottom currents . trough approaches is called a flood current. Water rushing into an enclosed area because of the rise in sea level as a tidal crest approaches is called an ebb current. – – __F__ A tidal bore is a steep wave moving upstream that is generated by the action of the tide trough in the enclosed area of a river mouth. – __F__

Documentation of tidal bore phenomena occurring throughout the world aids in defining the typical geographical setting of tidal bores and enables prediction of their occurrence in remote areas.

Tidal bores are naturally occurring, tidally generated, solitary, moving water waves up to 6 meters in height that form upstream in estuaries with semidiurnal or nearly semidiurnal tide ranges.

A tidal bore, often simply given as bore in context, is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travels up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay's current.

When the surge's Froude number is less than to (i.e. above unity and below a number somewhere in the range to ), the advancing front is followed by a train of well-defined free-surface undulations (called "whelps").

The surge is then called an undular surge or undular bore. Catalog of Worldwide Tidal Bore Occurrences and Characteristics. Book Girl and the Undine Who Bore a Moonflower (light novel). The Severn Bore: An Illustrated Guide. Tidal Bores, Aegir, Eagre, Mascaret, Pororoca: Theory and Observations.

Tidal Bores A bore is the hydraulic analogue ofa sonic boom: a moving wall of water that carries the tide up some rivers that empty into the sea.

For several hours after it passes the river Rows upstream We huddled together on the bank of the river in the cool spring night, drinking tea andFile Size: 1MB. A tidal bore is a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising, and the bore front corresponds to the leading edge of the tidal wave in a funnel shaped estuarine zone.

Tidal bore, also called bore, body of water that, during exceptionally high sea tides, rushes up some rivers and estuaries near a coast where there is a large tidal range and the incoming tide is confined to a narrow channel. Traveling upstream about two or three times as fast as the normal tidal current, a bore usually is characterized by a well-defined front of one or several waves.

Most benthic invertebrates inhabiting intertidal and shallow subtidal habitats have a two-phase life cycle, in which a free swimming larval stage resides from minutes to months in the plankton, depending on the species, while the adult stage lives and reproduces on the sea bottom (Thorson, ).In these species, a large fraction of the larval pool is advected Cited by: Tidal bore is a crossword puzzle clue.
