Abstract

Observation of tide effects were made to physical water properties and suspended sediment concentration in Salut-Mengkabong Lagoon. The physical water properties measured include current velocity, temperature, salinity, pH and dissolved oxygen in Salut Lagoon and Mengkabong Lagoon. The study was conducted during spring tide and neap tide. For each Salut and Mengkabong Lagoon, 5 stations were placed each lagoon. Physical water properties and current velocity from water samples were taken from surface, middle and bottom of the lagoon. Current velocity measurements were taken at I-meter increment from the lagoon surface. Field measurements were taken during ebb tide and flood tide. The result of spring tide and neap tide showed differences. The measurement of physical water properties during spring tide was relatively higher than during neap tide. Same results occured during measurement of 2 neap tides in 2 different monsoons. The measurement in September was relatively higher than during January. Tides play significant role in transporting suspended sediment in coastal lagoon then waves. Ebb tide and flood tide current condition also affected current velocity, temperature, salinity, pH and dissolved oxygen in coastal lagoons. Differences were observed between the inner station and the station near the inlet of Salut and Mengkabong lagoons.
