Abstract : An oceanographic survy of the Bellingham-Samish Bay tidewater system in northwestern Washington was conducted from November 1959 through November 1961. Determinations were made of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, dissolved inorganic phosphate, and spent sulfite liquor by conventional oceanographic methods at selected locations and depths on a total of 14 approximately bimonthly cruises. Current measurements were made at selected locations, and three exploratory diffusion experiments were conducted using Rhodamine B dye. The characteristics of various water properties were described for intervals during the survey period and flushing rates were computed. (Author)
