The Pearl and Pascagoula are the two largest Rivers between the Mississippi and Mobile Bay. In addition to the two major rivers, there are numerous smaller streams draining into the Mississippi Sound. The general objectives of the study were to: (1) determine the current seasonal and geographic variability in chemical quality of free and interstitial sediment water in the estuaries of the Pearl and Pascagoula Rivers, as well as some of the smaller estuaries, and (2) determine the nature of the reactions between sediments and interstitial sediment water and the effects, if any, of these reactions on water quality.
