AbstractThe aim of the study is to understand the wind effect on mean water level variation in semi-enclosed shallow basins. The studied physical phenomenon is nearly steady water surface tilting due to wind stress, the so-called wind tide (Platzman (1963)). During strong wind conditions, wind tides can have significant consequences on low-lying areas such as submersion and flooding. Two field sites are monitored in the S-E of France to characterize wind tides and more specifically to understand the relative effect of wind magnitude and depth on the mean water level dynamics.
