The municipality of Torshavn has plans to place a dump in a disused quarry in the
headland of Glyvursnes. One of the tasks is to estimate the initial dilution of run-off material from the dump into the ocean close to planned dump.
In this connection the consultant company have required estimates for the tidal
currents in the vicinity of the point Glyvursnes and a description of the tidal currents in the area.
This report includes plots which are representative for the peak current speeds
in the area at mean and spring tide, and twelve tidal current maps representing the
currents in a tidal cycle at mean tide.
