Abstract : In May, 1967 a series of measurements of 3-dimensional convected turbulent flow (scales of motion ranging from greater than 100 meters to 0.1 meters) were made in the Patuxent estuary with a 3-axis doppler shift (acoustic) type of current meter. The report deals with experimental design, instrumentation doppler meter noise, hydrography, and a general theory for sampling of convected fields of turbulence. The report also concerns itself with the general theory of 3-dimensional fields of turbulence in stratified estuaries and the results of extensive spectral and statistical calculations on five of the records of turbulence.
