About The Cover

Tidal flats in Minas Basin near Economy Point, Nova Scotia, showing largescale bedforms carved by strong tidal flows over sand. This is one of the sites being considered for tidal power development. The combination of shallow water and large tides makes this an area of extensive tidal dissipation. See page 69.
