|Abstract:||Using direct current measurements made during February-May 1982, alongshorecurrents over the innershelf off Visakhapatnam (water depth 45 m) have been discussed. Significant mean alongshore flow (20 to 50 cm.sec -1) occurs in the innershelf regime and is towards northeast. The intensity of observed mean flow has negligible variability. Mean alongshore flow appears to be related to the baroclinic pressure gradients associated with upwelling system. The relatively strong alongshore velocity shear observed during March-May induces upwelling. The onshore-offshore component of the current is weak during March-May.|
