      The highest salinity recorded was at station 60 in , and had a reading of ppt. Opposite of stat station 60 is located closest to the ocean. Overall, trends show that the salinity of the Delaware Bay has remained fairly constant through the years. Salinity Graph (pdf, 10kb). To provide future estimates of expected inflow to the Delaware Estuary, it is well to examine the existing conditions. Within the 86 mile reach of the Delaware Estuary, there are approximately one hundred tributaries. The major tributaries are gaged; however, the fresh water flow resulting from the ungaged tributaries must be estimated.

      Greenhouse Effect, Sea Level Rise, and Salinity in the Delaware Estuary Greenhouse Effect, Sea Level Rise, and Salinity in the Delaware Estuary (PDF, 44 pp., MB, About PDF), was a joint report from the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Delaware River Basin Commission, edited by C.H.J Hull and J.G. Titus (EPA ). exhibits a gradual change in salinity throughout its length, as fresh water entering the estuary from tributaries mixes with seawater moving in from the ocean (Figure ). Salinity is usually (Marine) expressed in parts per thousand (ppt) or 0/ The fresh water from rivers has a salinity of ppt or less. Within the estuary, salinity lev­.

The purpose of this investigation was to obtain data on and study the factors affecting the salinity of the Delaware River from Philadelphia, Pa., to the Appoquinimink River, Del. The general chemical quality of water in the estuary is described, including changes in salinity in the river cross section and profile, diurnal and seasonal changes, and the effects of rainfall, sea level, and.

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is a nonprofit dedicated to connecting people, science, and nature for a healthy Delaware River and Bay. The Delaware Estuary is the region's most important cultural, economic, and recreational resource. Animals and people need a healthy Estuary for drinking water, industry, food and fun.

SALINITY OF THE DELAWARE ESTUARY By BERNARD COHEN and LEO T. MCCARTHY, JR. ABSTRACT The purpose of this investigation was to obtain data on and study the factors affecting the salinity of the Delaware River from Philadelphia, Pa., to the Appoquinimink River, Del.

examines the implications of the greenhouse warming for salinity control in the Delaware estuary. The study focuses on the implications of (1) a inch rise in global sea level expected bywhich would imply a rise of feet in the Delaware estuary; and (2) a 7-foot global rise bywhich would imply.

Joshua Moody, Ph.D. is the Restoration Programs Manager at the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary. In this role, he manages a variety of projects to meet the region’s restoration needs. This includes the Delaware Estuary Living Shoreline Initiative (DELSI). hydrodynamic/salinity model of the Delaware Estuary.

This model simulated salinity changes under a variety of low-flow conditions in the s, as well as high-flow periods. It accounted for river contours, tides, wind, temperature, freshwater inflows, baymouth salinity and turbulence. Simulations were run for both existing and proposed.

The Delaware Estuary is the tidal portion, or the lower half, of the Delaware River Basin. It includes all of the watersheds draining into this portion of the Delaware River and Delaware area surrounding the estuary stretches as far west as the Schuylkill River’s headwaters near Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and as far east as the Rancocas Creek’s headwaters near Fort.

Existing Use Evaluation for Zones 3, 4, & 5 of the Delaware Estuary Ma draft report Summary Severe pollution problems have affected the Delaware Estuary for over years. A key component to the estuary’s restoration was the establishment of water quality criteria by the Delaware River Basin Commission in Sincethe main navigation channel of the Delaware Estuary has been dredged repeatedly, increasing the former foot controlling depths to about 40 feet.

In a U.S. EPA Delaware Estuary Program study, Najarian Associates analyzed these historical trends in Delaware Estuary tides and salinity patterns in relation to past dredging activities.

One important metric for understanding salinity concentrations in the Delaware Estuary (the tidal Delaware River & Bay) is the seven-day average location of the salt line, the mg/L chloride concentration based on drinking water quality standards.

Delaware Estuary salinity can range from 0 - 35 parts per thousand (ppt). The Atlantic ocean averages 35 ppt, but salinities change with depth and latitude. The salinity of Delaware Bay can vary depending on the weather; for example, the bay will contain more fresh water after much rain, and saltier after a drought.

The Delaware estuary, New Jersey's largest estuary system, is a semi-enclosed body of water where freshwater from the Delaware River mixes with salt water from the Delaware Bay. The estuary is a migratory route for many recreational and commercial fish and provides critical spawning and feeding grounds and nursery areas for many species.

The Delaware estuary is probably the first estuary for which the salinity effects of future sea level rise have been studied (Hull and Tortoriello ). 3 The salinity of this estuary, as affected by the impacts of river diversion and flow regulation projects, has been the subject of study—and litigation—since the early s, The Delaware.Numerical study on salinity stratification in the Pamlico River Estuary.
