Abstract : The data indicated that in midsummer the Central and Western Long Island Sound exhibits a biseasonal change of location of the saline landward drift which brings salt water into the sound. This drift takes the form of vertically homogeneous water arranged in a broad belt in the north central part of the sound during the fall and winter; in spring and summer it is on the bottom beneath the fresher water and is probably continuous from Block Island to Western Long Island Sound.
