Directed study, Geological Oceanography Senior Paper, concerned with
the geological history of the Mad River Slough that references the Mad
River Canal once dug in the late 1880s to connect the Mad River to
Gast, J. A., and Skeesick, D. G. (1964). "The Circulation, Water Quality, and
Sedimentation of Humboldt Bay California," Special Report No. 2, Humboldt
State University, Department of Oceanography.
Presents the results of measurements of hydrography, nutrients, water
circulation (currents), and sediments in Humboldt Bay.
Garcia, H. E. (1985). "Effect of Groin Extensions and Sediment Deposited at
Buhne Point on the Ebb Tidal Current Circulation in Entrance bay, Humboldt
Bay, California," Directed study (Department of Oceanography) at Humboldt
A senior paper that presents a study of the circulation within Entrance
Bay using a variety of measurement techniques. Develops general
circulation patterns, does not find the same effects at the connection
between Entrance Bay and South Bay as some other studies, but this may
be caused by the stations occupied, or the changes resulting from the
groin at Buhne Point.
Gayman, W. (1974). "Preliminary Report on Investigations of Little River
Beach and other Segments of Humboldt County Shoreline," OCN 199,
Oceanography Department, Humboldt State University.
Directed study. Not reviewed. Presents some information on waves,
beach sediments, and littoral processes.
Gera, A. V. (1973?). "Sediment Distribution in Central Humboldt Bay and
Relationship to Bathymetry and Hydrodynamics," OCN 199, Oceanography
Department, Humboldt State University.
Directed study. Surficial sediment distribution in Entrance Bay,
interpretations of relationship of sediment size distributions to
bathymetry and hydrodynamics.
Glatzel, K. A. (1982). "An Historical Overview of Land Use Surrounding
Humboldt Bay," in Proceedings, Humboldt Bay Symposium, (C. Toole and C.
Diebel, ed.), HSU Center for Community Development.
In addition to land use changes and conditions, this paper provides a
historical perspective of the baylands and wetlands that have been
isolated from tidal action, potentially affecting the tidal prism of the bay
since the latter part of the 1800s.
