USC Sediment Circulation Study (2006)

Aquarium divers sampled three sites of various depths. Core sediment and water samples were taken as well as current measurements and photo plots of the sand ripples and sediment composition. We will be assisting them with this project on a quarterly basis for two years. The data produced will provide information about the importance of the permeable sea bed as a site for particle sequestration and remineralization in this relatively productive region.

Papers, presentations, or publications not available as study still in progress - 10/07.
