Contents Notes
Macroscopic benthic biology -- Microbiotic ecology of ocean sewage outfalls in the Hollywood-Pompano Beach-Delray Beach area -- Oceanographic features of nearshore waters on a narrow continental shelf -- Pompano Beach marine waste disposal. A three year study to determine the effects of sewage outfall on macroscopic marine life and human recreation by comparison surveys was made using Boca Raton as a control for the Pompano Beach and Delray, Florida, outfalls. Sand samplings from the sewage lift stations were tested for total fecal and coliform counts, using standard methods. Temperature, salinity and current profiles were done and fluorometric dilution measurements were augmented by Sample Fit Analysis and Gausian Fit Analysis, measuring concentration deviations of the dye tracking of plumes resulting from the rising effluent surface 'boils'. A diffusion model furnished the basis of analysis on the various physical data and charted the fluorometric data. Rules are enumerated for limiting pollution on beaches as set by the state water quality controls.
