It is the purpose of this study to investigate the spatial distribution of hydrocarbons both in upper Rhode Island Sound surface sediments and in the commercially important shellfish from the area, the ocean quahog (Acartia islandica). In doing so, an attempt is made to distinguish the regular hydrocarbon geochemistry of Rhode Island Sound, defined by background hydrocarbon distributions and inputs from Narragansett Bay and adjacent coastal areas, from the input due to mobilization of hydrocarbons from the deposited dredge spoil during the five years since the disposal activity has ceased.
