Cabin Point Creek Channelization Study : Final Report, Walter I. Priest Iii, Robert J. Byrne, Bruce J. Neilsen, George R. Thomas Jan 1987

Cabin Point Creek Channelization Study : Final Report, Walter I. Priest Iii, Robert J. Byrne, Bruce J. Neilsen, George R. Thomas

Reports

In the realm of environmental impact assessment and analysis the effects of a proposed project are most often referred to in the subjunctive sense because of the qualifications and probabilities related to these postulations. Seldom does the opportunity present itself to follow a project to fruitition and beyond to, in fact, determine the validity of the assumptions made in arriving at the potential impacts of a project. Even less often is it possible to monitor a project from prior to construction to several years after the project has been completed to ascertain the exact nature of the projects impacts, compare ...


Polynuclear Hydrocarbons In Sediments And Clams In The Vicinity Of A Refinery Outfall, P. O. Defur, M. E. Bender, C. W. Su, Et Al Jan 1987

Polynuclear Hydrocarbons In Sediments And Clams In The Vicinity Of A Refinery Outfall, P. O. Defur, M. E. Bender, C. W. Su, Et Al

Reports

The objectives of this study were: 1) to determine whether certain organic substances (polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons) present in a refinery process water are found in adjacent sediments and bivalves; and 2) to determine the concentrations of the compounds detected.


Forested Buffer Zones : Pilot Studies On Efficiency In Reducing Surface And Shallow Groundwater Nutrient Inputs To Estuarine Waters, Carl Hershner Jan 1987

Forested Buffer Zones : Pilot Studies On Efficiency In Reducing Surface And Shallow Groundwater Nutrient Inputs To Estuarine Waters, Carl Hershner

Reports

This study was designed as a pilot study with the intent of identifying important considerations for the design and conduct of an investigation of forested buffer strip performance in Virginia's coastal plain. The approach 3 4' I was to conduct a small preliminary study on a single site using the opportunity to investigate a number of potential sampling methods.


A Mark-Recapture Study Of Striped Bass In The James River, Virginia : Annual Report 1987, Joseph G. Loesch, William H. Kriete Jr., Bruce W. Hill Jan 1987

A Mark-Recapture Study Of Striped Bass In The James River, Virginia : Annual Report 1987, Joseph G. Loesch, William H. Kriete Jr., Bruce W. Hill

Reports

Internal anchor tags with external tubes were used to tag 1,986 striped bass in the James River in the Spring of 1987. The total number tagged was adjusted (at this time) to 823 because of observed and suspected tagging mortality. The available stock of striped bass in the Spring contained both young resident fish and mature nonresident fish which left the area of capture after spawning, presumably to migrate north in coastal waters. The exodus of the mature fish after spawning and the absence of a commercial fishery resulted in only 42 tag returns as of Spring 1988. This ...


Ware Creek Reservoir Release Study : Final Contract Report Submitted To James City County, Virginia Institute Of Marine Science Jan 1987

Ware Creek Reservoir Release Study : Final Contract Report Submitted To James City County, Virginia Institute Of Marine Science

Reports

In Summer, 1986 a field program was conducted in Ware Creek from its mouth at the York River to the dam at Richardson's Millpond. The data collected was combined with flow data from USGS and a tide record from NOAA and was used to calibrate and verify a one-dimensional, real-time, hydrodynamic and salinity intrusion model. The model has been applied to study the effect of the proposed dam and reservoir on the salinity distribution in Ware Creek.
