Abstract : Dye diffusion experiments made near Sandy Hook, N. J., in August and October of 1963 are described. Hydrographic data of Sandy Hook Bay obtained during the August survey indicates that the change of temperature and salinity with time is mostly caused by advective effects of tidal currents. Dye diffusion experiments made during two days of October showed that dye was spread approximately only between two and seven meters deep in the area deeper than 25 m, probably due to calm weather and weak currents. The dye patches of these experiments indicated striations and elongation notwithstanding calm weather. A theoretical discussion on origins of striations from spectral aspect of passive diffusant is presented. (Author)
