Abstract

Primary objective was to map concentrations of target contaminants in the surfacial sediments. Secondary objectives included: characterization of potential sites for sediment capping demonstration projects, further characterization of sediment depositional and accumulation patterns, and estimation of historical contaminant inventories through sediment geochronology.
