Equipment Used
To sample and groundtruth the 1993 Acoustic data especally the sidedscan sonar
                  mosaic of the seafloor of Mamala Bay over the US Corps of Engineers 
        Deep Ocean
                  dredged material Disposal Sites used by Pearl and Honolulu Harbors. Use 
        box core
                  samples to determine the chemical and physical effects and 
        anthropogenic stresses
                  placed on the seafloor and near-surface substrate of Mamala Bay, 
        Honolulu, Oahu,
                  Hawaii.  The samples will be used to determine the toxicological and 
         effects of dredged material disposal on the ecosystem as well.
         Follow-up surveys addreessing the infauna will be conducted in 1995.
71 box core stations occupied in Mamala Bay, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii
with 65 recoveries. Cores photographed and slab taken from cores also x-rayed
for structure.  Dredged material visible in many cores on and off the disposal
sites.  Subsamples collected for toxicological analyses and anthropogenic
effects including: extractable heavy metals, organics, inorganics, pcb's,
pesticides, mineralogy, grain size, total- organic- and carbonate carbon.
