    Survey of benthic infaunal assemblages and sediment characteristics in and around the Charleston Ocean dredged material disposal area. Interim Report Submitted to the US Army Corps of Engineers. A macro-invertebrate infaunal dataset was produced from four replicate samples collected annually in September – from one station within the disposal ground (D) and from two nearfield reference stations to the south and to the north (Rs and Rn, respectively; Figure 1).Sediment samples were also collected for particle size analysis, and organic (carbon and nitrogen) and metal (As, Cd.

Fishes, Shrimp, Benthic Invertebrates, and Sediment Characteristics in Intertidal and Subtidal Habitats Major concerns associated with new dredged-material disposal sites, especially when creating islands, are the effects of such activities on Benthic invertebrate and sediment samples were collected at 5.

Benthic Invertebrates. The 10 benthic invertebrate replicates from each station allowed calculation of a mean number/m2 and standard deviation for each species, and total mean number/m2 and standard deviation for each station. Two community structure indices, diversity and equitability, were calculated for each sampling station.

This study assesses trace metals and macro benthic fauna in a dumping area for dredged material in the continental shelf of Guanabara Bay (Rio de Janeiro), southeast Brazil. Sampling of the study area was made after the last dredging of Rio de Janeiro, inremoving × 10 6 m 3 of sediments that were disposed at a recurrent dumping site.

Also, good correlations were not found between bulk TBT sediment concentrations and laboratory toxicity and in situ benthic community responses.

Based on an evaluation of available. conventional dredged material) and July (5 years after disposal). In both years, sediment-profile and sediment-surface images were collected at a total of 70 stations located over the red clay deposits and 20 stations over the nearby deposits of conventional dredged material (Fig.

Marine Ecology, 30 (Suppl. Effects of burial by the disposal of dredged materials from the Columbia River on Pacific razor clams (Siliqua patula). The severity of an impact caused by disposal of dredged material depends on many variables, such as the volume of the sediment, the manner of disposal, the characteristics of the dumped sediment and oceanographic conditions at the dumping site (Cole et al., b).

The assemblage in the place of disposal (spoil-ground) may respond to the impact. Author: Bolam, S.G. Source: Marine environmental research v pp. ISSN: Subject: anthropogenic activities; benthic organisms; community.

Burial survival of benthic macrofauna following deposition of simulated dredged material Bolam, Stefan In many coastal regions, the disposal of dredged material constitutes the largest (albeit often localised) anthropogenic disturbance to the seabed.

Impacts can be minimised by reducing the amount of sediment overburden on. 1. Introduction. Open water disposal of dredged material is an environmental concern in New England as well as throughout the world (Fredette and French, ; Van Dolah et al., ).The effects of dredged material disposal on benthic communities are well documented (Bolam and Rees, ).Impacts to the benthie community include direct burial by dredged material (Newell et al., The impact of sediment disposal upon benthic communities varies depending on factors such as volume and sediment characteristics of the discharged material, water depth, surface and hydrography of the disposal area, types of organisms inhabiting the disposal area, and similarity of sediments in dredged and disposal areas, among others (Windom.

The first testing manual, Ecological Evaluation of Proposed Discharge of Dredged Material into Ocean Waters, commonly referred to as the "Green Book," was published by EPA and USACE in This standard operating procedure describes a method for collection and preservation of benthic invertebrate and sediment characterization samples from the soft sediment typical of Great Lakes deepwater benthic habitats.

Suspected contaminated sediment proposed for upland disposal should be subjected to an EP Toxicity analysis. The regional administration adopted a temporary plan to store the dredged sediment in disposal areas such as tidal flats, adjacent to each dredging area and belonging to the same water body and there is currently a debate regarding whether or not to use the dredged sediment to restore salt marshes (Bezzi et al., ).

of the study was to collect baseline benthic invertebrate and sediment data in and adjacent to the proposed channel widening area prior to any habitat modification. Benthic invertebrate and sediment samples were collected in October and January, April, and July at 20 stations in or just south of the potential impact area.

Ten.The dredging process increases the sediment water content and decreases the bulk density from an average of g cm-3 found in the channel to g cm-3 at the completion of disposal.

During discharge the sediment/water slurry has a lower density and exhibits fluidized flow characteristics.The Effect of Restoration Measures on the Benthic Invertebrates of a Danube Backwater (Alte Donau) (chapter: %2F_14, book: %2F) .
