The overall objective of this project was to assess the extent and severity of documented or likely sediment contamination in Tampa Bay: obtaining and verifying the usefulness of available data sets of sediment chemistry, toxicity testing, and benthic sampling in Tampa Bay; developing a series of maps using geographic information system (GIS) mapping techniques to illustrating the spatial extent of chemical contamination in Tampa Bay; and evaluating the triad approach for assessing Tampa Bay sediment contamination. Section 1.2 details the scope of work for this report, Section 2 describes the data that were obtained and used for mapping purposes, Section 3 summarizes development of the map series and results of the mapping activities, and Section 4 presents the conclusions and recommendations of this study. Section 5 includes the cited literature.
