From 9 November through 15 December, 1992 a bottom mooring consisting of an upward looking acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) and a conductivity-temperature pressure (CTD) instrument were deployed in the Golden Gate. Tidal constituents were derived from least squares fit on pressure and current data. The amplitude of the M2 tide was 0.6 m and 100 cm/s, and primary tidal constituents were about 0.3 m and 20 cm/s. Current profiles were largely barotropic and one dimensional. Overtides and compound tides had amplitudes less than 0.02 m and 5 cm/s but had baroclinic structure and two dimensional hodographs. Tidal currents appear to be hydraulically driven. Mean flow and transport were directed at 110 deg T at 23 cm/s and 45 cu.m/s; indicative of the two dimensional structure of the Golden Gate. Mean energy fluxes at the site were 30,000 W for kinetic energy advection and 8,500,000 W for the work done by pressure. If representative of the channel, they imply a total energy flux of 8. 5 x 1O to the 9th power W through the Gate.

Kevin's Starr's Golden Gate is a brilliant and passionate telling of the history of the bridge itself, and a recounting of the rich and peculiar history of the California Golden Gate is a grand public work, a symbol and a very real bridge, a magnet for both postcard photographs and suicides.

In this compact but comprehensive narrative, Starr unfolds the hidden-in-plain sight /5(40). The Golden Gate is about miles wide at the point where the bridge is built across it, and its relative narrowness in comparison to the much larger bodies of water on either side of the strait means that the tides create very swift and powerful currents as the waters flood in from the ocean and then ebb back out in accordance with the tidal cycles each day (for a more detailed look at the.
