This is one of two reports describing the results of an oceanographic survey dealing with the currents and biology and chemistry of Casco Bay. The aim of this report is to provide pertinent data on the marine system for the prediction of oil spill movements and contains information on the tidal and non-tidal currents, water column structure and bottom topography of the area showing how they interrelate to affect the disposition of such materials introduced into the system. Additional discussions on the analysis of wind driven circulation and its effect on the movements of surface oil are included.
