Abstract or Summary
  • No hydrologic study has previously been made of the South Slough Estuary drainage basin. Yet, since freshwater runoff is paramount to an estuary, it would seem that such a study is vital to the proper understanding -- and hence management -- of the estuary. Therefore, a brief hydrologic analysis of the South Slough basin has been conducted as part of a class project at Oregon State University. The results are presented on the following pages. This analysis consists of two major parts: (1) The freshwater streamflow that enters the estuary from the drainage basin; and (2) the mixing of that fresh I'/ater within the estuary. It should be noted that hydrologic data for the South Slough basin are made conspicuous by their absence. For this reason, data from nearby collection stations outside the basin have been used in the analyses made for South Slough. This has permitted an estimate of precipitation and runoff. But the results presented here can in no way take the place of the analysis of data collected in the drainage basin itself. Nor should these results, based on monthly averages of precipitation, be compared indiscriminately with measured daily values.
