Description/Abstract

Short period (2·4 to 2·7 h) and long period (several days) oscillations of non-tidal origin have been identified in the analysis of a short series of sea level records from stations in Salonica Bay and Thermaicos Gulf.

Oscillations of short period can be attributed to seiche-like motions; those of long period correspond with variations in barometric pressure. The harmonic constituents are generally indicative of a standing tidal wave over the whole of the area.
