Description :
The wind effect on water circulation was described by means of hydrodynamical measurements carried out in the Ría de Pontevedra (NW of Spain) from February to July 1998. The samples were measured at an anchored station situated in the inner part of the ría. It was observed a clear predominance of wind in the main estuary axis direction. Wind speeds higher than 4 m.s-1 are able to dominate the current at surface layers. Easterly winds force water to leave the estuary at surface layers while westerly winds force water to enter it.
