This research investigates the temporal variation in the water column structure during a partial tidal cycle in the Western Solent at a location just off the mouth of the Beaulieu River. The data were collected using the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler, the Conductivity-Temperature- Depth instrument, and the Autonomous Benthic Recorder. The properties of the water column structure investigated were temperature, salinity, flow velocity, and turbidity at different depths during the partial tidal cycle. It will be shown that these identified properties of the water column vary temporally and spatially in the vertical during the partial tidal cycle. Relationships will be demonstrated among these properties to show that their variations are caused mainly by the ebb and flow of the tidal cycle which dynamically influences the structure of the water column in time and space.

Keywords : Water column, turbidity, velocity profile, shear stress, ebb tide, flood tide, temperature, salinity, stratification, suspended sediments, vertical mixing, acoustic Doppler current profiler (ACDC), conductivity-temperature depth instrument (CTD).
