Current velocities in Sagadahoc Bay, Maine

Open-File Report 54-149
By:  and 



During the summer of 1953 continuous velocities were obtained through a tidal cycle at each of the 17 stations indicated on the accompanying map. Tidal cycle as used in this report applies to the interval of 4 to 6 hours when the tidal flat at a given station is submerged. The velocities were measured by recording current meters set 0.1ft., 1.0ft, and 3.0ft above the bottom. Velocities at 0.1ft above the bottom are the bottom velocities discussed in this report. Velocities at the other heights were used for comparision.
