dc.description.abstractfrom 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 show that such an operation is technically feasible and that the concept is environmentally safe. A successful burial operation would require the accurate and deliberate deposition of dredged sediment in a subaqueous pit and burial of the deposit under a sediment cap probably composed of sand. The cap should be thick enough to isolate the underlying deposit from burrowing organisms, protect the underlying deposit from disturbance by storm-generated waves and currents, and serve as a reservoir for pore water that would be expelled from the underlying deposit during consolidation. The basic principles of all the essential features of a successful operation have been demonstrated."en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThe works contained within this collection are the final products of a joint collaboration between the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SOMAS); the MASIC Library and the Preservation Department. The project was conducted during the winter through summer 2013 academic semesters, and its focus was to convert older, archival records generated by SOMAS and maintained within the University Libraries to accessible, electronic resources in support of research and learning. All works are based on the original, analog (paper) records as released by SOMAS, except where born digital only records have been loaded to the system. All works have been preserved for historic purposes, please see the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Library for assistance in viewing the analog originals upon which this project is based.en_US
