A comprehensive model which correctly reproduced tides, currents, and salinities in the James River and tributaries was used to determine the probable effects of a proposed 10-ft increase in the depth from 25 ft to 35 ft mlw of the navigation channel between Newport News and Richmond on salinities and currents in the estuary as a whole and especially over the seed oyster beds.
