Contents Notes
The research helps to determine the environmental response to the deposition to spoil on salt marshes using diked and undiked techniques. It considers the effects on water quality, motile and benthic biological communities and the marsh grass habitat. The emphasis of these studies has been on the identification of the processes responsible for observed effects and the assessment of ways of minimizing there. The ultimate goals in these studies has been to develop an approach to predicting environmental responses due to dredging activities. All of the studies described in this report were carried out in the salt marsh estuarine environment of the Southeastern Atlantic Coast. In every case studied, hydraulic pipeline dredging was the technique used. The disposal of the dredge material was carried out in confined or unconfined salt marsh areas.
