Abstract
Various flow visualization techniques were applied to study the tidal exchange of the Seto Inland Sea with the largest hydraulic model in a horizontal scale 1/2000. To analyze dyefront patterns, image processing techniques have been developed. The techniques include the extraction of the boundary of the dyefront and the flow direction through tuft images.
