Each PLTR was plotted versus time, including the case in the aforementioned point (i).
Water Level and Velocity, and Potential Larval Transport Rate (PLTR) on the Sandflat in 2010
This alteration was necessary to evaluate any relationship between TR of (broadly defined)-nighttime origin and PLTR through the monitoring period, as the duration from SS to L and the mean water velocity during that time segment in each of the H-SS-L-SR and SR-H-SS-L orders were multiplied to obtain the estimates for those corresponding PLTRs (Section 2.11.1).
The time series on the plots of PLTR and spline curve interpolated with the loess function are shown in Figure 16D, in which the three sets of continuous gray spline curves corresponding to those separate time segments are joined by a single (dotted) spline curve through the monitoring period.
Similarly, based on Figure 16D, the spline curve for the plots from every pair of the lunar age at the halfway point of each successive (broadly defined)-nighttime H to L times and the corresponding PLTR through the monitoring period is shown in Figure 16F.
There was a large variance in the PLTR for each TR (Fig.
To examine a possible stochastic influence of meteorological variables on PLTR, all pairs of PLTR and TR at the (broadly defined)-nighttime ebb phase are plotted in Figure 17.
Following the existence of a significant positive correlation between PLTR and (broadly defined)-nighttime ebb TR for the monitoring period in 2010 (Section 3.9; Fig.
The PLTRs for the eight batches of the whole Nihonotrypaea harmandi population on the Tomioka sandflat during its reproductive season of 1994 are shown in Figure 20, in which the peak and range of each PLTR corresponding to those of the main larval release span (MLRS) in each cohort (Fig.
The data set on water levels and velocities was used to (1) estimate the temporal change in PLTRs during the reproductive season of N.
Nevertheless, in calculating PLTRs in Section 3.9, all cases for the H time positioned in the second half of the nighttime (as in the present case and Fig.
