Public Health Aspects Of Tropical Storm Agnes In Virginia's Portion Of Chesapeake Bay And Its Tributaries, M. P. Lynch, J. Claiborne Jones Jan 1976

Public Health Aspects Of Tropical Storm Agnes In Virginia's Portion Of Chesapeake Bay And Its Tributaries, M. P. Lynch, J. Claiborne Jones

VIMS Books and Book Chapters

All Virginia waters within Chesapeake Bay were closed for the taking of shellfish for direct consumption on 23 June 1972. This initial closing was in anticipation of high microorganism levels accompanying flood waters moving downstream. Various areas beginning with the lower portion of Chesapeake Bay were reopened beginning )n 20 July 1972. By 5 October 1972 all areas closed as a result )f Tropical Storm Agnes were reopened. No increased incidents of infectious diseases caused by waterborne microorganisms were noted in Virginia which could be attributed to Tropical Storm Agnes.


Effect Of Handling And Methylpentynol Anaesthesia On Serum Glucose Levels In Goldfish, Carassius Auratus Linnaeus, Richard E. Spieler, Max Allen Nickerson Jan 1976

Effect Of Handling And Methylpentynol Anaesthesia On Serum Glucose Levels In Goldfish, Carassius Auratus Linnaeus, Richard E. Spieler, Max Allen Nickerson

Marine & Environmental Sciences Faculty Articles

In comparison to "pre-stress" levels, goldfish anesthetized with methylpentynol and "handled" showed a significant increase in serum glucose level one day after handling, and apparent continued effects for the next three days. Fish handled but not anesthetized, and control fish which were neither anesthetized nor handled did not exhibit similar changes.

Fine Scale Circulation Near "Foxtrot" In Hampton Roads, Virginia, Christopher S. Welch, Bruce J. Neilson Jan 1976

Fine Scale Circulation Near "Foxtrot" In Hampton Roads, Virginia, Christopher S. Welch, Bruce J. Neilson

Reports

During 1974 the Virginia Institute of Marine Science conducted a series of oceanographic, water quality and modeling studies for the outfall from the proposed Nansemond Wastewater Treatment Plant (VIMS, 1975). One of these studies included dye releases to determine the dispersion and transport of material discharged to Hampton Roads near Pig Point. These dye releases were made from the munitions loading piers known as "Foxtrot".

The proposed outfall, as given in the Facilities Plan is located roughly one kilometer to the east-south-east of Foxtrot. Tidal circulation in Hampton Roads is quite complex and there was concern that the distribution patterns ...


Changes In Salinity Structure Of The James, York And Rappahannock Estuaries Resulting From The Effects Of Tropical Storm Agnes, Paul V. Hyer, Evon P. Ruzecki Jan 1976

Changes In Salinity Structure Of The James, York And Rappahannock Estuaries Resulting From The Effects Of Tropical Storm Agnes, Paul V. Hyer, Evon P. Ruzecki

VIMS Books and Book Chapters

The peak effect of the flood waters produced by Tropical Storm Agnes was seen on June 25 in the James, June 26 in the Rappahannock, and June 30 in the York. Recovery toward normal salinity conditions after the high runoffs proceeded discontinuously, with alternating periods of vertical stratification and destratification. During strongly stratified stages, saline water advanced upstream along the bottom. In the York and James Rivers, the most dramatic stratification occurred about July 20- 25. This event resulted in bottom salinity values exceeding normal ambient values and, at the river mouths, reaching values hitherto unobserved. This event was apparently ...
