25 estuary flow marina through flow marina local flow Flood tide Ski Canal closed Sea Glades closed This was the situation from ~ 1985 to mid-2002 before Sea Glades Bridge was constructed Figure 25

26 Flood tide Ski Canal open Sea Glades closed estuary flow marina through flow marina local flow This was the situation from mid-2002 (when Ski Canal opened due to a large southward migration of the estuary inlet) till 27 October 2003 when Sea Glades Bridge was opened Figure 26

27 Flood tide Ski canal open Sea glades open estuary flow marina through flow marina local flow This was the situation from 27 October 2003 (when Sea Glades Bridge was opened) to the present Figure 27

28 estuary flow marina through flow marina local flow Flood tide Ski Canal closed Sea Glades open This would be the situation if Ski Canal closes again Figure 28
