Abstract
The report describes the nutrient budgets, benthic metabolism and community structures observed around two deep ocean sewage outfalls off Oahu, Hawaii. The authors conclude that, at an ecosystem management level, the overall effect of effluent on benthic and pelagic ecosystems off Oahu is clearly insignificant -- primarily as a result of effective dispersal and dilution.
