Circulation Marine de la Baie de Cintra (Sud du Maroc) par Modèle Hydrodynamique 2D
AbstractThe marine circulation of Cintra bay located at Dakhla Oued Eddahab area (south of Morocco 23°08’N-16°20’W) has been studied from October to November 2016 by 2D hydrodynamic model. This study aims to understand the marine circulation of this bay and its hydrodynamic functioning. Mainly governed by wind and semidiurnal M2 tides, currents are generally strong in intensity (mainly > 0.5 m.s-1 ) outside the bay. Inside the bay, their intensity are less than 0.3 m.s-1 and generally oriented to the south of the bay due to the influence of the trade winds (NE). Due sometimes to the influence of W and/or SW winds, the coastal circulation of the bay is oriented from the south to the north, impacting its northern part.
