Abstract : The Delaware River model reproduces the entire estuarine portion of Delaware Bay and River from the Capes to Trenton, N. J. The model is of fixed-bed construction and is equipped with all necessary appurtenances for accurate reproduction and measurement of tides, tidal currents, salinity intrusion, channel shoaling, and other significant phenomena of the prototype. The principal problems to be studied on the model are concerned with reduction of shoaling and salinity intrusion, although other problems of a lesser degree of importance will also be investigated. This report is concerned with the hydraulic and salinity verification of the model, and contains complete data showing the degree of accuracy attained with respect to duplication in the model of observed prototype phenomena.
