Characteristics Of Sediments In The James River Estuary, Virginia, Richard Moncure, Maynard Nichols

Reports

This report presents data on the physical and chemical characteristics of bottom sediments in the James River estuary, Virginia. The data were generated as part of a comprehensive study of sedimentation in which the initial objective was to broadly define the distribution of sediment properties.


Report To The York River Oyster Research Corporation On The Physiological Response Of Oysters To Several Polymeric Materials And Their Derivatives, Dexter S. Haven Mar 1967

Report To The York River Oyster Research Corporation On The Physiological Response Of Oysters To Several Polymeric Materials And Their Derivatives, Dexter S. Haven

Reports

The physiological responses of several polymeric materials and their derivatives, associated with the manufacturing process of pulp, were tested on oysters. It was thought that, when fed in small quantities, these substances might increase shell or meat size or be of value as possible nutritive supplements . The substances tested were divided into two classes. The first, consisting of basic polymeric materials, may occur in natural water s as the result of chemical changes. Representatives of these were indulin C and dextrose. The second class is composed of chemically pure derivatives of the preceding substances. These may appear in trace amounts ...

Lower James River Pollution Study, City Point To Chickahominy, August 6 - September 6, 1951 : A Preliminary Report Of Findings, Conclusions And Recommendations, William H. Massman, Ernest C. Ladd

Reports

Hopewell,m Virginia.is ·a highly industrialized city, the Celanese Corporation of .America, the Continental Can Company, the Hercules Powder Company and the Solvay Process: Division of· Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation having plants there. All of these plants have industrial and human wastes, the combined amount of which is great from. the standpoint of both volume and strength. In addition, there. are human wastes from the City cf Hopewell and its suburbs in Prince George County and from Camp Lee. All of those wastes, sewage and industrial are discharged into the James River, Bailey Creek and into other tributaries ...


Hydrographic Data From The Atlantic Plankton Cruises Of The R/V Pathfinder, December 1959 - December 1960, Edwin B. Joseph, William H. Massmann, John J. Norcross Jan 1961

Hydrographic Data From The Atlantic Plankton Cruises Of The R/V Pathfinder, December 1959 - December 1960, Edwin B. Joseph, William H. Massmann, John J. Norcross

Reports

The data included in this report have resulted from a series of monthly offshore cruises conducted by the Ichthyology Research Section. The cruises were made to obtain information on the distribution and abundance of pelagic eggs and larvae of fishes. Since the biological results will be reported in a series of separate papers (Joseph, Massmann and Norcross, 1961), it was felt that the raw hydrographic data shpuld be made available in a single source.

The area covered is approximately 2500 square nautical miles of the neritic zone within the 20-fathom contour. The shore line encompasses the mouth of Chesapeake Bay ...
