Lu­ing bid to mea­sure tide

The Oban Times - - News -

AN AP­PLI­CA­TION by Lu­ing Com­mu­nity Coun­cil to ex­plore the ti­dal re­source within Cuan Sound is pub­lished in to­day’s Oban Times.

The sound sep­a­rates the Isle of Lu­ing from the main­land.

The pro­posal to de­ploy two ti­dal gauge in­stru­ments to mea­sure the ti­dal height on ei­ther side of the sound will be­gin in July for 35 days. Each ti­dal gauge in­stru­ment weighs one kilo­gram and is 110mm by 450mm long.

Each will be se­cured on the seabed by a buoy. Lu­ing Com­mu­nity Coun­cil has dis­cussed the sur­vey with CalMac.
