The purpose of this report is to summarize selected hydrologic and salinity characteristics of Currituck Sound and three of its tributaries, document water and salt fluxes in two tributaries to the sound, and describe variations in salinity within the sound. Data were collected at three locations in Currituck Sound and at three tributary locations to the sound from March 1, 1998, to February 28, 1999. These data include water level, velocity, flow, salinity, and temperature. Selected climatological data were obtained from the National Climatic Data Center (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, written commun., 1999).
