This dissertation is an attempt to determine and describe some of the turbulent process in a well-mixed estuary. The processes are identified by the study of turbulent velocity fluctuations. These velocity records have been analyzed using standard digital methods to obtain spectral density, spectral energy, and cross-spectra of velocity. In order to study the generation and transfer of the turbulent moment and energy, and the intermittent nature of the so-called "Bursting or "ejections and sweeps," the distribution of u, v, w, and the Reynolds stress has been studied.
