San Joaquin Estuary near Stockton, California: An Analysis of the Dissolved Oxygen Regimen

Authors: Albert Katko, William Pierce, Richard Bain Jr.
Publication Date: January 01, 1968
Summary: This report presents data and relationships derived from a survey of the waters of the San Joaquin River Estuary near Stockton, California. Dissolved oxygen levels were measured on eight cruises from mid-July to the end of October, 1964. Each cruise included sampling during a low tide slack in the late afternoon as well as during the following pre-dawn period. Phytoplankton populations, nutrient level and water temperatures were also obtained at seven river stations and the Stockton Sewage Treatment Plant effluent. The pollution problems of the Stockton area are characterized and explained in part by the data from this brief study.
