dc.description.abstractfrom the abstract, "The hydrographic features of the Peconic Bay estuary are described from the data of a March 1975 cruise by the Marine Sciences Research Center (MSRC) and from a series of cruises in Flanders Bay from 1971 to 1974 by the New York Ocean Science Laboratory (NYOSL) . The Peconic Bay estuary in March was a vertically homogeneous estuary dominated by a strong and turbulent tidal flow. The discharge rate of fresh water into the bay is small in relation to the tidal exchange so that the mean fraction of fresh water was only six per cent. Tidal mixing and exchange in the open bays appears capable of rapidly diluting and dispersing pollutants introduced with fresh water discharges. Water quality problems presently exist in the vicinity of waste outfalls in tributaries to Flanders Bay and in Sag Harbor . . ."en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThe works contained within this collection are the final products of a joint collaboration between the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SOMAS); the MASIC Library and the Preservation Department. The project was conducted during the winter through summer 2013 academic semesters, and its focus was to convert older, archival records generated by SOMAS and maintained within the University Libraries to accessible, electronic resources in support of research and learning. All works are based on the original, analog (paper) records as released by SOMAS, except where born digital only records have been loaded to the system. All works have been preserved for historic purposes, please see the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Library for assistance in viewing the analog originals upon which this project is based.en_US
