Abstract. In order to comprehend the salinity transport mechanism,the tidally varying circulation,and salt stratification are investigated in Lingdingyang bay.The conclusions are:When the discharge is moderate,Lingdingyang is a highly stratified estuary,and salt wedge movement is very prominent.The baroclinic circulation is comparatively strong,and strong salinity gradients create a complex three-dimensional flow.A tidal intrusion front moves upstream in flood periods,and distance of movement is longest in flood slack.Because Velocity shear across the interface of fresh and salt water,and intense waves from and break,entrainment is very strong which cause salt water into freshwater.
