This lesson introduces students to the concepts of salinity and density and provides students an opportunity to create and test a hypothesis about how the distance from the mouth of an estuary influences salintiy levels.
Every summer, Oregon Sea Grant places high-caliber junior and senior undergraduates from around the U.S. with Oregon-based federal and state agencies and nongovernmental organizations for paid, 10-week internships.
The National Sea Grant Library makes single copies available by interlibrary loan,
and many have been digitized and made available for free download.
The library is especially useful for locating older publications that may be out of print.
Please contact us if you are having difficulty with the accessibility of any of
our documents and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
