  • An Assessment of shellfish resources in the deep water areas of the Peconic Estuary 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Lewis, Daniel; Kassner, Jeffrey; Cerrato, Robert Michael; Finch, Rebecca (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1997)
    from the introduction, ". . .In the present study, a survey of the shellfish resources in the deep waters of the Peconic Estuary was undertaken in the fall of 1995 as part of the natural resources assessment for the Peconic ...
  • Baseline sedimentary and faunal characteristics of potential shell planting and references sites in Great South Bay 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Maher, Nicole P.; Cerrato, Robert Michael (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 2000)
    from the introduction, ". . .The purpose of this study was to establish baseline sedimentary and faunal community characteristics at several sites in Great South Bay in anticipation of a possible shell planting, habitat ...
  • The benthic fauna at four potential containment/wetlands stabilization areas in the New York Harbor region 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Cerrato, Robert Michael; Bokuniewicz, Henry J. (Henry Joseph) (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1986)
    from the introduction, ". . .In this report, comparative information is presented since managers ultimately needed to decide on which, if any, of these areas were suitable for the containment of dredged material. However, ...
  • The benthic fauna of Newark Bay 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Cerrato, Robert Michael (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1986)
    from the introduction, ". . .In the present study, a benthic survey was conducted in Newark Bay as part of an environmental assessment of a proposed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers navigation project. Sampling was carried out ...
  • Containment Islands in New York Harbor 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Bokuniewicz, Henry J. (Henry Joseph); Cerrato, Robert Michael; Ellsworth, J. (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1989)
    From abstract: "The construction and use of containment islands is a technically feasible option for the disposal of dredged sediment. The ecological impacts due to the loss of sea floor under he island might be minimized ...
  • Containment islands in New York Harbor 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Bokuniewicz, Henry J. (Henry Joseph); Cerrato, Robert Michael (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1985-12)
    from the abstract, "In this report we will present information which indicates that the construction of large or medium-sized containment islands in New York Harbor is within the present technical ability, that containment ...
  • Effect of borrow pits on the abundance and distribution of fishes in the Lower Bay of New York Harbor 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Conover, David O.; Cerrato, Robert Michael; Bokuniewicz, Henry J. (Henry Joseph) (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1985-12)
    from the abstract, "A finfish survey was done on a monthly basis by trawling at three sites in the Lower Bay of New York Harbor. Two of these sites were within borrow pits that had been excavated in the bay floor by ...
  • North Shore bays benthic mapping : groundtruth studies : final report to NY Department of Environmental Conservation 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Cerrato, Robert Michael; Holt, Lee (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 2008)
    from the abstract, "We combined high-resolution remote sensing techniques with detailed study of the physical and faunal characteristics at point locations in different seafloor environments within the Oyster Bay Cold ...
  • Population dynamics of the hard clam : a statistical analysis based on existing Town of Brookhaven survey data 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Cerrato, Robert Michael; Wallace, Heather V. E. (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1989)
    from the introduction, ". . .The goals of this project were to: 1) analyze the available census data to determine if areas of high and low abundance can be statistically defined and persist in time, 2) compare hard clam ...
  • A seasonal study of the benthic fauna in Moriches Bay 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Cerrato, Robert Michael (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1986)
    from the introduction, ". . .This report gives the results of a seasonal benthic study of Moriches Bay. Sampling was carried out from May 1981, corresponding to the first major recruitment period after closure of the ...
  • A spatial and seasonal study of the benthic fauna of the Lower Bay of New York Harbor 

    Marine Sciences Research Center; Cerrato, Robert Michael; Bokuniewicz, Henry J. (Henry Joseph); Wiggins, Mark H. (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1989)
    from the introduction, ". . .In carrying out this empirical analysis, we felt that further progress toward identifying a site for a containment island was limited in part by inadequacies in the benthic data base available ...
  • Studies in the Lower Bay of New York Harbor associated with the burial of dredged sediment in subaqueous borrow pits 

    Hirschberg, David Jacob; Bokuniewicz, Henry J. (Henry Joseph); Cerrato, Robert Michael (Marine Sciences Research Center, Stony Brook UniversityStony Brook, NY, 1986)
    from the abstract, "Subaqueous burial is a viable disposal alternative for isolating and containing dredged sediment. Although no large scale project of this type has been done, studies in New York Harbor and elsewhere ...
