Four seasonal hydrographic surveys were conducted in the vicinity of the Buccaneer Oil Field in an effort to describe the physical environment in and around a producing oil and gas field. The measurements made included currents, wind, waves, total suspended solids, and hydrographic parameters including temperature, salinity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH and transmissivity. The results of the study indicated that the area can best be described as a mixing zone for coastal and offshore waters.
