The Hydrography of Knight Inlet, B.C. in the Light of Long’s Model of Fjord Circulation
This paper will discuss the circulation and associated hydrography of Knight Inlet, and will compare the behaviour with the predictions of a theory of the circulation of a two layer estuary due to R. R. Long (1975). The contents of this paper, of necessity, represent only a summary of the work completed, and a discussion in greater depth is being prepared for publication elsewhere, Freeland and Farmer (1979).
