The physical and chemical environment of the bay system is dealt with in this two-part report. Part one provides fundamental information on the morphology, tides, currents, salinity and temperature of Delaware Bay. The spatial and temporal variability of these factors are discussed and most of the available data is summarized. Part two treats the chemistry of the Delaware Estuary. Averaged over a two-year period, data on chloride, chromium, iron, chlorophyll, phenols, oxygen, phosphate, and nitrite are presented and discussed in terms of hydrographic conditions and biochemical reactions.
