Abstract : The present purpose of the investigation is to determine the effects of the physical and hydraulic features of estuaries (such as tidal prism, tidal range, fresh-water discharge, channel depth, channel width, etc.) on the extent of salinity intrustion, the nature of salinity intrustion, the magnitudes and durations of current velocities, and other factors considered essential to proper solution of estuarine problems encountered by the Corps of Engineers.
