Abstract : The report presents the results of a series of tests made to determine the effects of the proposed Delaware River channel enlargement between Philadelphia and Trenton on salinity intrusion in the vicinity of and upstream from the Delaware-Pennsylvania state line and on hydraulic conditions throughout the estuary. The proposed channel enlargement consists of deepening and widening the existing 25-ft-deep by 300-ft-wide channel between stations 00+000 and -150+000 to 40 ft deep by 400 ft wide. A brief description of the model and a brief discussion of the hydraulic and salinity adjustment and verification are also included in the report. (Author)
