  • An experimental study of salt wedges 

    Farmer, Harlow G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1951-12)
    The objective of the estuary studies being conducted at this Institution is to attempt an understanding of tidal flushing. Two theories have been developed, that of Ketchum employing an extension of the tidal prism ...
  • Report to the Towns of Brookhaven and Islip, N.Y. on the hydrography of Great South Bay and Moriches Bay 

    Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution; Redfield, Alfred C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-04)
    During the summer of 1950, The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution conducted a study of the waters of Great South Bay for the Town of Islip, New York, with a view to seeking the cause of the decline of the oyster ...
  • On the nature of estuarine circulation : part I (chapters 3 and 4) 

    Stommel, Henry M.; Former, Harlow G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-10)
    The reader will quickly see that the subject matter of Chapter 3 is confined to the hydraulics of sharply stratified media, whereas real estuaries are always more or less diffusely stratified. What is more, no discussion ...
  • The distribution of salinity in the estuary of the Delaware River 

    Ketchum, Bostwick H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-12)
    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. ...
  • Some results of a trade cumulus cloud investigation 

    Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1953-05)
