Tidal resource and interactions between multiple channels in the Goto Islands, Japan (2017)
Journal Article
Waldman, S., Yamaguchi, S., O'Hara Murray, R., & Woolf, D. (2017). Tidal resource and interactions between multiple channels in the Goto Islands, Japan. International Journal of Marine Energy, 19, 332-344. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijome.2017.09.002

The Goto Islands in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, contain three parallel channels that are suitable for tidal energy development and are the planned location for a tidal energy test centre. Energy extraction is added to a 3D numerical hydrodynamic mode... Read More about Tidal resource and interactions between multiple channels in the Goto Islands, Japan.
