    Oceanography : its scope, problems, and economic importance
    (Houghton Mifflin Company, 1931) Bigelow, Henry Bryant
    From the Foreward: This book is part of a report submitted to the National Academy of Sciences by its Committee on Oceanography appointed in accordance with the following resolution voted on April 27, 1927: 'That the President of the Academy be requested to appoint a Committee on Oceanography from the sections of the Academy concerned to consider the share of the United States of America in a world-wide program of Oceanographic Research and report to the Academy.' ... The book is an attempt to appraise the present condition of oceanographic research with reference to the more outstanding problems, so as to take bearings for future research.

    Studies of the waters on the continental shelf, Cape Cod to Chesapeake Bay. II. Salinity
    (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1935-07) Bigelow, Henry Bryant ; Sears, Mary
    The present paper forms a sequel to the account of the temperature of the same region (Bigelow, 1933)... the continental shelf between the offings of Cape Cod (longitude about 70°) and Chesapeake Bay;-extended southward, for occasional months, to the offing of Cape Hatteras; and with such discussion of conditions along the continental slope as is justified by occasional profiles.

    Studies of the waters on the continental shelf, Cape Cod to Chesapeake Bay. I. The cycle of temperature
    (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1933-12) Bigelow, Henry Bryant
    When the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries, in cooperation with the Museum of Comparative Zoology, commenced the oceanographic survey of the Gulf of Maine in the summer of 1912 (Bigelow, 1925-1927), it was in the hope that this might later be extended to the coastal waters thence southward; eventually even as far as the Gulf of Mexico. Cruises carried out in connection with investigations of the biology of the mackerel, by the Fisheries' steamer "Albatross II" from 1927 to 1932, supplemented by those of the research ship "Atlantis" of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, have made it possible to extend the detailed examination of the physical oceanography of the continental shelf as far as the offing of Chesapeake Bay, and to the offing of Cape Hatteras for some of the months. The present account of the temperature of the region will, it is hoped, be followed shortly by corresponding accounts of salinity, of circulation and of the dominant planktonic communities.
