The pumice around Tancha bay: Video one

23. December 2021 - 16:00

Video 1: A webcam situated above Tancha bay has caught the interesting dynamics between the tidal currents and the wind over the last few months. Wind- and current-induced motions are often acting at the same time and can be in similar directions, opposite, or anything in between. Videos taken from the webcam footage shows the pumice being beached and refloated repeatedly. This video appeared in the article “The pumice around Okinawa: How long will it last and where will it go?”. See “The pumice around Tancha bay: Video 2” for the second video.
