Abstract:

This report presents the results of a St. Clair River open water surface current study and briefly describes the procedures used. The collection of data involved tracking of drogues vis aerial time-lapse photography along the entire St. Clair River. The report contains drogue charts displaying drogue tracking through the major channels of the St. Clair River. The data enables the user to quickly assess the flow pattern of the river at various locations, thus allowing prediction of the movement and behavior of possible pollutants so counter measures can be taken. They are also useful to navigational interests, both commercial and recreational, as well as aiding in search and rescue operations of the Coast Guard.
