Abstract Current records from three surveys at Bora Bay, Miyako Island, all showed strong unidirectional flows. Ocean water entered the lagoon over the shallower western half of the reef flat and exited the lagoon through a channel on the eastern side. Fourier transform of one of the survey data sets showed that this unidirectional flow is modulated on a cycle with a period half as long as the dominant M2 tidal cycle. The prominent features of the observed time-series current profiles were well… CONTINUE READING
