Near-maximum flood-tide velocity, Mattituck Inlet offshore area,
1200 GMT, 7 October 2002
Near-maximum ebb-tide velocity, Mattituck Inlet offshore area,
1830 GMT, 7 October 2002
Near-maximum flood and ebb current velocities in the vicinity of the inlet
entrance and the offshore shoal are illustrated in Figures 5-8c and 5-8e.
Figures 5-8d and 5-8f display the same current velocity vectors overlying the
bathymetry for this area. The influence of the jetties at Mattituck Inlet on the
direction of the depth-averaged current can be seen in Figures 5-8g and 5-8h,
where eddies form and current reversals occur.
