The purpose of this data file, which has been modelled after Hathaway (1971), is to make available most of the basic data that was collected as part of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's study of New Bedford Harbor. The New Bedford Harbor project, which was jointly funded by the Office of Sea Grant and Woods Hole, was designed to examine the past and present patterns of dispersal and accumulation of fine-grained sediments and waste materials in New Bedford Harbor and its approaches.

Decadal-timescale estuarine geomorphic change under future scenarios of climate and sediment supply Ganju, Neil K.; Schoellhamer, David H. (Springer, 2009-12-19)Future estuarine geomorphic change, in response to climate change, sea-level rise, and watershed sediment supply, may govern ecological function, navigation, and water quality. We estimated geomorphic changes in Suisun ...
Ralston, David K.; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Traykovski, Peter A.; Nidzieko, Nicholas J. (2012-01-25)Tidal flats at a river mouth feature estuarine and fluvial processes that distinguish them from tidal flats without river discharge. We combine field observations and a numerical model to investigate hydrodynamics and ...
The transformation of salinity variance : a new approach to quantifying the influence of straining and mixing on estuarine stratification Li, Xiangyu; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Zhu, Jianrong; Wu, Hui (American Meteorological Society, 2018-03-08)The roles of straining and dissipation in controlling stratification are derived analytically using a vertical salinity variance method. Stratification is produced by converting horizontal variance to vertical variance via ...
