Tidal scour is an erosion process which is carried out by the tidal movement of water. Examples of this hydrological process can be found in many areas of the world. Two locations in the United States where tidal scour is the predominant shaping force is the San Francisco Bay and the Elkhorn Slough. Many other coastal areas around the world are shaped by this process.
