DISSOLVED OXYGEN CONCENTRATIONS IN FLORIDA'S HUMIC-COLORED WATERS AND WATER QUALITY STANDARD IMPLICATIONS
The Florida Department of Environmental Regulation has established detailed dissolved oxygen standards for the various classes of surface water in the state. The results of this study and a review of the literature reveal ...
COMPUTER SIMULATION OF LIGHT ATTENUATION
A computer simulation model developed to study light attenuation in the ocean was applied to clear, medium turbid and turbid waters under diverse conditions. The model theory is based upon multiple small angle scattering ...
INFRARED ABSORPTION STUDY OF HUMIC SUBSTANCES FROM LAKE APOPKA SEDIMENT, PLANKTON AND THE SURROUNDING DRAINAGE BASIN
Infrared absorption spectra were run on humic substances from Lake Apopka sediment samples and compared with spectra from citrus and muck farm humic substances from sediment in the surrounding drainage basin, and also with ...
THE GEOCHEMISTRY OF INTERSTITIAL WATER FOR A SEDIMENT CORE FROM THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON, FLORIDA
Chemical results for interstitial water from organic-rich sediments in the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, show a classic picture of biogeochemical reactions in anoxic environments. Interstitial nitrate was depleted throughout ...
HYDROGRAPHIC FEATURES OF FORT PIERCE INLET, FLORIDA
Circulation of the Fort Pierce Inlet and adjacent portions of the Indian River on Florida's Central East Coast was investigated during a 2 yr period. The currents were predominantly tidally driven, with wind effects becoming ...
BENTHIC RESTING CYSTS OF GONYAULAX MONILATA HOWELL AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO RED TIDES IN THE INDIAN RIVER, FLORIDA
Gonyaulax monilata cysts were found in the sediments from 13 of 37 stations sampled in the Indian River, Florida. The distribution of cysts appears to be the result of 2 unrelated phenomena. In areas where blooms have ...
THE OCCURRENCE OF A TOXIC DINOFLAGELLATE IN THE INDIAN RIVER SYSTEM
References to the toxic dinoflagellate, Gonyaulax monilata Howell, in the Indian and Banana rivers are compiled from published and unpublished sources. The inability of researchers to find motile cells for extended periods ...
A NEW METHOD FOR IMPROVED FIXATION OF THE CHICK'S INNER EAR
Our method for fixation of the chick's inner ear involves puncturing the soft temporal bone with a needle and directly flushing the membranous labyrinth with cold glutaraldehyde. The temporal bone is trimmed and immersed ...
A redescription of Echinaster Modestus Perrier, 1881 (Asteroidea: Spinulosida) from the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the West Indies
The seastar Echinaster modestus Perrier, 1881, is redescribed and a lectotype is designated. Echinaster spp. from the west coast of Florida used in recent experimental studies are not E. modestus.
PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFERA COLLECTED BY THE R/V MELVILLE (1972) IN THE SOUTHWEST ATLANTIC
The planktonic foraminiferal fauna was studied from 186 samples collected by the R/V Melville in the Southwest Atlantic Ocean during 1972. The samples were collected in the surface layer (horizontal tows) and throughout ...
