The Lim fjord in Denmark has two connections to the open sea. Therefore the residual flow through the Lim fjord is an important parameter in relation to salinity and concentration on nutrients. It is described how it has been possible to determine the residual flow from the observation of the duration of the tidal current going the same direction.
The purpose of the paper is to present the idea behind this field measurement technique and not to publish oceanographic data.
