Abstract : Temperature, salinity, and current measurements extending over one or more tidal cycles were made at various times during the three-year period 1960-1962 in Coos Bay, on the central Oregon coast. Dissolved oxygen was measured occasionally. The three regular sampling stations are shown. Station A is located at the Coos Bay Pulp and Paper dock south of Empire, Station B at the U. S. 101 Highway bridge, and Station C at the municipal docks at North Bend. On two occasions, midchannel stations along the entire fifteen-mile length of the estuary were sampled. A special current study was conducted in March 1963. Measurements in Coos Bay before 1960 have been reported by Queen and Burt (1955), Burt (1956), and Burt and McAlister (1958). (Author)
