Abstract:

The effect of the Montery Submarine Canyon on seiching in Monterey Bay is not well known. Spectral analyses of simultaneous tidal records from the north-south extremities of the bay were performed for 23 January and 20 April 1969 to investigate this effect. Both days records had long-wave activity of which seiching was at least a contributing mechanism. Analyses of the computed spectra for the periods during the long-wave activity, and ten-hour periods both before and after, indicate that the seiching motion in Monterey Bay has similar amplitudes at the north-south extremities.
