Dynamics of Wind Setdown at Suez and the Eastern Nile Delta

Figure 10

Current vectors at 15:00 and 19:00 hours.

The wind ceases at 12:00 hours, and the return wave inundates the exposed mud flats. The initial surge through the Kedua Gap is from South to North (a); the following surge is from West to East (b). For clarity, only 1/10 of the flow vectors are shown in each horizontal dimension. Color scales are in meters. Place names are shown in Figure 8.
