dc.description.abstractfrom the conclusion, ". . .Broad categories of use impairment in Jamaica Bay that are causing significant losses of ecological, economic or social values are 1) limited opportunities for swimming and other watercontact recreation, 2) unsafe seafoods, 3) losses of commercial and recreational fisheries, 4) loss or modification of habitat. Causes of these impairments include 1) human pathogens, 2) toxic substances and 3) excess nutrient loadings, in addition to the others mentioned previously. Measures of such impairments are not standardized, nor in many cases, totally quantifiable. The specific subsets of these impairments that have been examined are listed in Table 21. These impairments are overlapping throughout the Bay and may be caused by a variety of factors often acting synergistically. In addition, the causal agents may have both direct and indirect effects. For example, contaminants may, at low levels, directly jeopardize the health of finfish or shellfish by lowering reproductive capacity. They may indirectly affect human health via the consumption of those organisms. . ."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
