The influence of tidal currents is a very important factor in port planning. The normal orientation of harbor facilities is usually designed to be parallel with the main direction of tidal currents to accommodate larger-sized vessels. However, there are still many ports that do not necessarily satisfy this fundamental rule, especially in small ferry berths. This study describes the present situation of Japanese ports under strong tidal currents. First, meteorological and oceanographic… CONTINUE READING
