A Check List Of The Biota Of Lower Chesapeake Bay : With Inclusions From The Upper Bay And The Virginian Sea, Marvin L. Wass Oct 1972

A Check List Of The Biota Of Lower Chesapeake Bay : With Inclusions From The Upper Bay And The Virginian Sea, Marvin L. Wass

Reports

The biota of Chesapeake Bay seems generally less known than that of New England and much of our West Coast. The present work attempts to mollify this discrepancy. The compilation has been revised and expanded to include plants and vertebrates. Inclusion of creatures not strictly aquatic but which may occasionally found their areas flooded by tidal waters has necessitated subjective declsions of limitation.

A Study Of The Zooplankton Of Lower Chesapeake Bay : Nsf-Rann Annual Report, 1972, George C. Grant Jun 1972

A Study Of The Zooplankton Of Lower Chesapeake Bay : Nsf-Rann Annual Report, 1972, George C. Grant

Reports

Studies of zooplankton are necessary to any broader investigation of aquatic ecosystems. In estuaries such as the Chesapeake Bay, zooplankton function as both detritus feeders. and primary consumers of phytoplankton. Some of them, including chaetognaths, medusae and large copepods, are members of a higher trophic level. The diversity of zooplankton, especially in neriitic areas, contributes to the complexities of such studies. The present project was intiated wholly as a result of the interest of the National Science Foundation in Chesapeake Bay and the establishment of the Chesapeake Research Consortium. The design of the research was planned to integrate with ongoing ...

Oceanographic Data Collected In The Chesapeake Bight Of The Virginian Sea From 1966 Though 1969, E. P. Ruzecki, J. J. Norcross, F. J. Wojcik

Reports

This report is intended to make unsynthesized oceanographic data readily available to the scientific community. 3 Similar reports are envisioned which will include physical, chemical, biological and geological data collected by personnel of the Virginia Institute ·of Marine Science in areas of the continental shelf, and coastal zone to include beaches, wetlands, estuaries and tidal rivers - areas in which the Commonwealth of Virginia has a vested interest.

Inner Shelf Sediments Off Chesapeake Bay. I - General Lithology And Composition, Maynard M. Nichols Jan 1972

Inner Shelf Sediments Off Chesapeake Bay. I - General Lithology And Composition, Maynard M. Nichols

Reports

The sedimentary materials and bottom topography of more than 2400 square miles of the inner continental shelf floor north off the Chesapeake Bay entrance have been surveyed for potential mineral resources. Sediments consist of two principal types: (1) fine sand and (2) medium to coarse sand. The fine sand is grey-colored, subrounded, rich in quartz and relatively 11clean 11 and well sorted. The medium-coarse sand is typically iron-stained, rich in shell and poorly sorted. The fine sand covers inner parts of the shelf floor whereas medium to coarse sand covers seaward parts. Additionally, shell-rich medium to coarse sand occurs on ...

Bahamas Bibliography : A List Of Citations For Scientific, Engineering And Historical Articles Pertaining To The Bahama Islands, Carol Fang, W. Harrison Jan 1972

Bahamas Bibliography : A List Of Citations For Scientific, Engineering And Historical Articles Pertaining To The Bahama Islands, Carol Fang, W. Harrison

Reports

Specialized bibliographies are sometimes needed in connection with the research studies being pursued at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. The Bahamas Bibliography arose out of the needs of marine geologists, biologists and physical oceanographers engaged in studies of beaches, fishes and inlet currents in the Bahama Islands. Although the present bibliography may suffer from completeness, it significantly surpasses in number of citations the only other known bibliography of like kind.
