Date Issued:
1966-07 - 1966-07
Summary:
The monthly range of chlorinity in the estuary was the lowest for the month of July since the beginning of record in 1962. The downstream low salinities resulted from heavy rains in previous months. For instance, in June 1966 a record rainfall in excess of 20 inches fell on the open glades. During the month the 500 parts per million (ppm) isochlor, which is essentially the fresh-brackish water line, fluctuated between mid-Tarpoon Bay and the upper Shark River.
