Committee on Tidal Hydraulics of the Hydraulics Division, ASCE

Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1970, Vol. 96, Issue 7, Pg. 1539-1548

Document Type: Journal Paper


When recently requested to identify the most pressing research need in its field, the ASCE Tidal Hydraulics Committee quickly arrived at the consensus opinion that thermal and sedimentary pollution of tidal water bodies was the major problem in need of research in its respective field. Upon designation of this research need the Tidal Hydraulics Committee was directed to develop the topic further, identifying the nature of the problems and dividing the subject into several smaller specific investigations. Over a period of a year valuable ideas and suggestions have been obtained from all committee members. These have culminated in the following report. The report describes the nature of the sedimentary and thermal pollution problems in tidal water and includes a review of the literature and some related research. The report outlines general and specific research needs in both thermal and sedimentary pollution and includes a section on instrumentation.
