The Solent: an estuarine system in flux Colin Tubbs Reprinted, by agreement with the editors, from the Shorelines feature in BTO News No. (March-April ) The modern Solent on the south-coast of England arose from the invasion of an ancient river system by the sea following the end of the last Ice Age. The main stream formerly flowed. The Solent Estuarine System consists of Southampton Water, the West Solent, the East Solent and Spithead, Portsmouth, Langstone and Chichester Harbour. These are all drowned Pleistocene river systems above Tertiary (mostly Eocene) clays and sands with minor limestones.

The Solent Maritime SAC is a complex site encompassing a major estuarine system on the south coast of England. The Solent and its inlets are unique in Britain and Europe for their unusual tidal regime, including double tides and long periods of tidal stand at high and low tide. The valley system swings southwest down the English Channel to join the extended channel of the River Seine off the Le Havre region. In the Pleistocene gravel phases the Hampshire rivers were upper tributaries of an extended River Seine.   The Mountbatten library has 4 group study rooms, 17 individual study rooms, and almost computers.

The combination of numerical models and discrete datasets is used to describe and investigate processes of natural variability in the partially-mixed, non-turbid, macrotidal Solent-Southampton Water estuarine system (UK). The estuarine circulation and the response of wind forcing is examined using a three dimensional, free surface, finite volume and finite element grid by: 1.

Preface: This review of the Solent is the fifth in a series on major UK estuarine systems to be published by the Natural Environment Research Council. Its preparation is the result of an initiative by Dr J. D. Burton of the Oceanography Department, Southampton University. The Solent forms the largest estuarine system of the south coast of the UK. The components of this system include the West and East Solent and their approaches, the Eastern harbours of Portsmouth, Langstone and Chichester, Southampton Water and other small tributary rivers such as the River Beaulieu, Lymington and the Yar.
