Baltimore Harbor Sediment Metals
Principal Investigator:Jeffrey C. Cornwell
Start/End Year:1998 to 1999
Institution:Horn Point Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
Co-Principal investigator:Robert P. Mason, Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
To measure depositional fluxes of sediment and sediment-water exchange rates of trace metals in order to develop a sediment budget for Baltimore Harbor, examine rates and locations of high rates of metal deposition and develop sediment-water exchange procedures for metals and to determine if such exchanges are important to the biota and overall metal budgets.
