Vims-Blm Second Order Wave Climate Model And Wave Climatology Of Baltimore Canyon Trough Shelf Area, Victor Goldsmith Jul 1979

Vims-Blm Second Order Wave Climate Model And Wave Climatology Of Baltimore Canyon Trough Shelf Area, Victor Goldsmith

Reports

The Wave Climate Model of the Baltimore Canyon Trough Shelf area encompassing the designated lease blocks was extended, refined, and comparisons made with real wave data, as part of this year's contract (Figures 15-la and 15-lb). This modified model w.as produced to refine the 1975 model so that more definitive statements and interpretations could be concluded, based on more detailed data, in the evaluation of the baseline data. A set of computer-generated graphics utilizing a greater depth data point density (0.25 NM), to al.low site-specific evaluation of conditions within the lease block area, were produced.


Acute Biological Effects Of Chemically Dispersed Oil Spillage : Final Report To The American Petroleum Institute, George C. Grant, Howard I. Kator, Paul L. Zubkoff Jun 1979

Acute Biological Effects Of Chemically Dispersed Oil Spillage : Final Report To The American Petroleum Institute, George C. Grant, Howard I. Kator, Paul L. Zubkoff

Reports

Primary productivity, heterotrophic potential, chlorophyll i! and phaeophytin, ATP, and direct bacterial counts were measured in the sea surface layer under controlled spills of La Rosa and Murban crude oils following immediate dispersal with the EXXON dispersant, Corexit 9527. Tests were conducted off New York on November 9, 1978.

The response of productivity to dispersed oil appeared as an initial increase in rates, a reduction to minimal rates 1-2 hours after dispersion, and a return to pre-spill rates after 3 hours. Comparison of productivity measurements from the two tests suggested a more efficient and rapid dispersion of the somewhat lighter ...

Reports

Eggs and larvae of decapod crustaceans and embryos of Mulinia laterulis were exposed to chlorinated seawater for varying periods in continuous flow systems. Mortality, developmental rate, and general behavior were recorded.

A Survey Of The Late Summer Benthos Community In The Vicinity Of The C. P. Crane Generating Station, Robert A. Jordan, Charles E. Sutton, Patrica A. Goodwin Jan 1979

A Survey Of The Late Summer Benthos Community In The Vicinity Of The C. P. Crane Generating Station, Robert A. Jordan, Charles E. Sutton, Patrica A. Goodwin

Reports

A survey of the sediment distribution in the vicinity of the C. P. Crane Generating Station, Bengies, Maryland showed that the sediments in the creeks receiving the plant's cooling water discharge were predominantly soft clayey-silt. The benthic invertebrate taxa found in these sediments were typical of the connnunities found in oligohaline waters of Chesapeake Bay. Comparisons of the benthic community in the discharge area with the connnunities in two reference areas of similar sediment type revealed an apparent reduction in the discharge area population of the dominant amphipod, Leptocheirus plumulosus, in August.

Problems In Chesapeake Bay Of Mutual Interest To The State Of Maryland And The Commonwealth Of Virginia, J. Claiborne Jones, John B. Pleasants

Reports

The Chesapeake Bay, one of the largest and most productive estuaries in the world, represents a vast natural, economic, and social resource for the citizens of the surrounding land area. The Bay is many things to many people. Much of the economic development of the entire region has been based upon the natural transportation network and the fisheries industry provided by the Bay and its tributaries. The Bay system also offers a wide variety of water-oriented recreational opportunities, a source of water for both residential and industrial users, and a site for the final disposal of many waste products. The ...
