Equipment Used
Obtain diver push cores from selected sites in Western Long
island Sound : Manhasset Harbor, Little Neck Harbor, and Hempstead
Harbor. Two cores from each site.
Information to be Derived
Determine down core concentration profiles of Chlordane and
DDT. Analyses performed by scientists at CCNY.
one dive at each site/ 2 cores collected at each site.
Total of 3 dives Total of 6 cores collected
Collected a total of six push cores of at least 50 cm. in
length. Bottom Sediments very silty and underwater visibility was
less than a few feet. The weather was lousy and the boat (32 ft.
Sport Fisherman) was clearly not rigged for dive operations, but in
true USGS fashion-we endeavored to endure and succeeded in spite of
