The Thames Estuary is the estuary in which the River Thames meets the waters of the North Sea, in the south-east of Great Britain. It is not easy to define the limits of the estuary. Although physically the head of Sea Reach or the Kent / Essex Strait, south of Canvey Island on the northern (Essex) shore presents a western boundary, the Tideway itself can be considered estuarine; it starts in south-west London at Teddington/Ham. The eastern boundary of the estuary suggested in a Hydrological Survey of 1882-9 is a line drawn from North Foreland, Margate, Kent via the Kentish Knock lighthouse to Harwich in Essex. It is to this line that the typical estuarine sandbanks extend. The estuary downstream of the Tideway has a tidal movement of 4 metres, moving at a speed of 8 miles per hour.

  • The Thames Estuary is the estuary in which the River Thames meets the waters of the North Sea, in the south-east of Great Britain. It is not easy to define the limits of the estuary. Although physically the head of Sea Reach or the Kent / Essex Strait, south of Canvey Island on the northern (Essex) shore presents a western boundary, the Tideway itself can be considered estuarine; it starts in south-west London at Teddington/Ham. The eastern boundary of the estuary suggested in a Hydrological Survey of 1882-9 is a line drawn from North Foreland, Margate, Kent via the Kentish Knock lighthouse to Harwich in Essex. It is to this line that the typical estuarine sandbanks extend. The estuary downstream of the Tideway has a tidal movement of 4 metres, moving at a speed of 8 miles per hour. The estuary is one of the largest of 170 such inlets on the coast of Great Britain. It constitutes a major shipping route: its thousands of movements each year include large oil tankers, container ships, bulk carriers and roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) ferries entering the estuary for the Port of London and the Medway Ports of Sheerness, Chatham and Thamesport. The traditional Thames sailing barge worked in this area, designed to be suitable for the shallow waters in the smaller ports. More recently one of the largest wind farms in the UK has been developed in the estuary, located 8.5 km north of Herne Bay, Kent. The farm contains 30 wind turbines generating a total of 82.4MW of electricity. The much larger London Array of up to 1GW capacity is also planned. This area has had several proposed sites for the building of a new airport to supplement, or even to replace Heathrow/Gatwick. In the 1960s Maplin Sands was a contender; in 2002 it was to be at Cliffe, Kent. The new airport would be built on a man-made island in the estuary north of Minster-in-Sheppey There is also some discussion about the need for a Lower Thames Crossing in order to alleviate traffic congestion at Dartford. The Thames Estuary is the focal part of the 21st-century toponym, the "Thames Gateway", designated as one of the principal development areas in Southern England. (en)
  • El estuario del Támesis es uno de los principales entrantes del mar del Norte en la costa oriental de Gran Bretaña, y es la zona en la que desemboca el río Támesis. Es la puerta que da acceso a todo el tráfico marino de la zona del Gran Londres y donde se concentra una importante actividad industrial y residencial. (es)
  • L’estuaire de la Tamise est en Grande-Bretagne, l'endroit où la Tamise rejoint la mer du Nord. Ses limites ne sont pas clairement définies, mais il semblerait que les environs de Canvey Island en constitue la limite occidentale, l'estuaire étant limité à l'est par une ligne tracée à partir de North Foreland dans le Kent jusqu'au phare de Kentish Knock à Harwich dans l'Essex, selon une étude hydrologique réalisée entre 1882 et 1889. L'amplitude des marées dans cet estuaire le place au deuxième rang mondial, puisque l'eau peut monter jusqu'à 4 mètres à une vitesse de près de 13 km/h. Outre Canvey Island, l'estuaire de la Tamise est parsemé d'îles comme Sheppey, Two Tree Island ou Grain (faisant partie de la Péninsule de Hoo). * Portail du monde maritime Portail du monde maritime * Portail de l’Angleterre Portail de l’Angleterre (fr)

Non ha confini delimitati chiaramente, ma secondo uno studio idrologico realizzato tra 1882 e 1889 si ritiene che il suo limite occidentale sia intorno a Canvey Island, lungo una linea nord sud tra North Foreland nel Kent al faro di Kentish Knock a Harwich nell'Essex. Quest'area è la seconda al mondo per ampiezza delle maree: le acque possono salire fino a 4 metri, con una velocità di circa 13 chilometri orari. All'interno dell'estuario si trovano diverse isole, come Sheppey, Two Tree Island e Grain, parte quest'ultima della Penisola di Hoo. (it)
  • 泰晤士河口(英语:Thames Estuary)是泰晤士河注入北海的河口。 在大不列顛島的170個出海口中,泰晤士河是其中最大的幾個出海口之一,是班輪航線的停靠港之一,每年有上千艘船隻,包括大型油輪、貨櫃船、散货船及滾裝船進入泰晤士河口,要到倫敦港、施爾尼斯的梅德韋港、查塔姆及泰晤士。 傳統的泰晤士航行駁船曾在此處航行,駁船經過設計,適合淺水區域的小港口。目前泰晤士河口已有一座發電量大的風力發電廠,位在荷尼灣北方8.5 km。風力發電廠中有三十座風力發電機,總發電量有82.4MW,發電量更大的,有1GW的倫敦陣列也已經在規劃中。 這是與英國地理相關的小作品。你可以通过編輯或修訂擴充其內容。 (zh)
  • Эстуарий Темзы (англ. Thames Estuary) — эстуарий реки Темзы при её впадении в Северное море. Западная граница эстуария проходит к востоку от Лондонского Сити; восточная — по устьям рек Блэкуотер и Крауч в графстве Эссекс на севере и реки Медуэй и протоки Суол (близи острова Шеппи) в графстве Кент на юге. Большим эстуарием Темзы называется открытая часть эстуария, расположенная непосредственно у Северного моря. Высота приливов на берегах эстуария достигает 4-х метров. В эстуарии Темзы находятся морские порты Лондона, на реке Медуэй — Темзпорт и порты городов Ширнесса, Чатема. В 8,5 км от берега в районе Северного моря установлены десятки турбин ветряной элетростанции. Разговорный акцент в Лондоне и прилегающей к эстуарию графствах Эссекс и Кент получил название «эстуарный английский». (ru)
