Short summary
In this work, Van der Burgh's coefficient, K, is determined in the dry and wet seasons in a salt plug estuary to examine the contributions of tidal versus density-driven salt transport mechanisms. Gravitational circulation was entirely dominant over tidal dispersion in the wet season, whereas density-induced inverse and positive gravitational circulation facilitated an inverse and a positive estuarine circulation seaward and landward from the salt plug area during the dry season, respectively.
