Difference in flow speed (m/s) when energy extraction is applied in the area indicated by the rectangle. Yellow to red indicates an increase in flow speed at the time-step, green to blue a decrease. White indicates that the magnitude of the change is less than 3 cm/s.

Little is known about the possible effects that a large number of tidal turbines would have on the local tidal regime. Having some idea is important, not only for the purpose of predicting power output (it could be reduced due to reduced flow speeds), but also for environmental impact assessment. Field data on these effects […]
