from the introduction, "One element of the Long Island Sound Study began in August of 1986 to examine the distribution of suspended particles in the Long Island Sound. Both seasonal and monthly hydrographic surveys were conducted in order to measure the concentration and distribution of suspended sediment. These surveys also provide information on the distribution of temperature, salinity, and sigma-t, paramters useful in aiding in the interpretation of the suspended sediment data. The purpose of this report is to present that data and discuss the more prominent patterns and trends."
