The Summer 2004 Sediment Displacement Study evaluated the magnitude and extent of sediment displacement in Cell SU as a result of cap placement operations conducted in 2000 on the Palos Verdes Shelf. This study objective was addressed by collecting and analyzing a series of sediment cores from specific sites within Cell SU, located at varying distances from cap placement positions, and evaluating changes in core depths of specific DDE concentration profile markers as an indicator of scouring. A secondary objective was to evaluate the comparability of the sediment coring methods used for this study with those used by the Los Angeles County Sanitation District (LACSD) for their long-term sediment study. This objective was addressed by conducting an intercalibration exercise and comparing contaminant profiles from co-located cores.
