Description:

Estuaries have physical traits, and scientists use a variety of measurements such as water depth, salinity, and current speed to describe an estuary. This site describes the various measurements that make up the physical properties of an estuary, using Narragansett Bay as an example. Specific sections of this site focus on water chemistry (temperature, salinity, oxygen, chlorophyll a, and pH), circulation (tides, currents, density fresh water input and flushing rates), and seasonal and daily cycles (yearly cycles, daily cycles, and tidal cycles).
