Abstract or Summary
  • During 1973 data was collected to analyze the seasonal variations of the tidal dynamics, water quality and sediments of the Alsea Estuary. A summary of historical information with a list of all known alterations to the estuary was made. A complete physical description, including the geographical setting and mixing classification of the estuary, was done. Times of high and low water and tidal ranges at three locations were measured. Tide measurements made at Waldport indicated that the published tide predictions for that location were reliable. At a location upstream of the estuary embayment noticeable damping of the tidal wave amplitude was detected during periods of high river flow and high tidal range. High water lag times were found to decrease during periods of high river flow, but low water lag times were unaffected by river flow. The tide motion was found to be a damped, partially standing wave, which altered its behavior according to the volume of water in the estuary. The high and low tide water quality parameters of salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity and pH were measured at 10 to 18 locations during each season to determine any seasonal changes in them. The parameters at a given location were found to be a function of river flow and tidal range. Winter and summer sediment samples were analyzed for grain size distribution, volatile solids and porosity. The sediments from the main channel exhibited characteristics of a high velocity regime and those of the north channel, a low velocity regime.
