...has some MPEG animations of amphidromes that I was unable to play due to size, but seemed very interesting from the description in the accompanying text

...another good picture, and text about The North Sea amphidrome



Abstract of paper by A. BECKMANN and S. DIEBELS in Journal of Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics, 76, 95-119.




Here's a good picture of the Mediterranean System ...although I can't seem to figure out where I found it!




A TOPEX/POSEIDON reconstruction that I wish was a little larger...
although I'm curious to know why New Zealand's pseudo-amphidrome was superimposed directly on top the islands themselves!
Maybe they thought New Zealand was an error!




Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Merseyside,UK
..has some really excellent images taken from their models of tidal dynamics off the Argentine coast and Falkland Islands. Probably the best "regional" amphidromic-related study I've seen yet.
Hmmm...I wonder if the Argentines are studying the North Sea amphidromic system!
