Abstract: Estuarine vertical mixing is defined as a function of river water discharge and tidal range. Conditions of formation of mixing layers and internal waves in an estuary are discussed. 1D Navier-Stokes equation is used to describe water motion in a plane turbulent mixing layer. The period of self-oscillations of the velocity field in a mixing layer calculated by the model is compared with that estimated from measurement results in partially mixed St. Lawrence estuary.
