This volume contains data on the dispersion of sewage sludge subsequent to its disposal at a site near the apex of the New York Bight. Cruises were made in May, July, and October, 1975. An optical tracer method was used to measure the water column distribution of waste material for two to four hours after discharge. Direct measurements of the concentration of suspended material were made. Ambient temperature-salinity-density profiles were taken. Currents were measured by moored and profiling instruments and by drogue tracking. Laboratory analyses on the settling characteristics, densities, and optical properties of sewage sludges from the New York area are presented.
