Abstract
from the abstract, "A review of evidence, collected prior to 1987, reveals that the fine-grained sedimentary system of Long Island Sound has the following characteristics. . .Although the Sound effectively retains the fine-grained sediment supplied to it, within the Sound fine-grained sediment is widely dispersed by tidal resuspension and turbulent mixing."
