The distribution of salinity in the estuary of the Delaware River

1952-12 , Ketchum, Bostwick H.

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has been asked by the New York City Board of Water Supply to study and review recent observations on the distribution of fresh and salt water in the Estuary of the Delaware River. The objective was to determine the relationship between river flow and the salinity in various parts or the estuary so that the effects of the proposed diversion of Delaware River water on the distribution of salinity could be evaluated.

Biological, chemical and radiochemical studies of marine plankton

1961-02-15 , Ketchum, Bostwick H.

From the introduction: Since the last progress report and research proposal was submitted to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission we have completed seven cruises on which the primary objectives were the study of the biology, chemistry and radiochemistry of marine plankton populations. As in the past, our program of plankton research has been jointly sponsored by the Atomic Energy Commission, by grants from the National Science Foundation, by contract with the Office of Naval Research and by Institution funds. Of the seven cruises mentioned above, three included a complete hydrographic and zooplankton collecting section of 13 - 15 stations extending from Montauk Point to the vicinity of Bermuda; one occupied the first third of this section extending across the continental shelf to the Gulf Stream, and three were for the purposes of specialized studies.
