Tributyltin In Whole Water And Sediment Collected From Marinas And The Hampton Roads Area In The Southern Chesapeake Bay : A Final Report, Donna J. Westbrook, Ellen J. Travelstead, Francois A. Espourteille, Charles D. Rice, Robert J. Huggett Jan 1986

Tributyltin In Whole Water And Sediment Collected From Marinas And The Hampton Roads Area In The Southern Chesapeake Bay : A Final Report, Donna J. Westbrook, Ellen J. Travelstead, Francois A. Espourteille, Charles D. Rice, Robert J. Huggett

Reports

This report presents data gathered in a program designed to monitor tributyltin (TBT) levels in water and sediment from areas in the southern Chesapeake Bay which experience high boating activities. The concentrations reported will hopefully give an insight into the extent and magnitude of TBT contamination in these areas.

The York River: A Brief Review Of Its Physical, Chemical And Biological Characteristics, Michael E. Bender

Reports

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the York River, Virginia. The river is formed by the confluence of the Mattaponi and Pamunkey rivers at West Point, Virginia. It is tidal over its entire length and flows to the western shore of Chesapeake Bay.

A Survey Of Potential Problems Related To Toxic Organic Chemical Contamination Of Aquatic Environments, Carol B. Rideout, Michael E. Bender

Reports

Toxic organic chemicals have affected aquatic resources by (1) restricting harvest; (2) causing biological damage to harvestable stocks; and (3) damaging other biological resources eg. benthic animals and birds.

Areas under review:

Puget Sound, Oregon Bays, San Francisco Bay, Southern California, Louisiana, Mississippi Sound and Mobile Bay, Texas Bays, Chesapeake Bay and Tributaries, Delaware Bay, New York Harbor, Hudson R~ ver - Raritan Bay Estuary, Narragansett Bay, the Great Lakes. Annotated bibliographies included with each sector.
