Abstract

The results of seven disposal operations involving sediment dredged from the Galveston Bay Entrance Channel were monitored. This section summarizes the results from the four operations for which there are sufficient data for comparison with elutriate test result data. A complete description of the experimental procedures, dump nomenclature, and results are presented in a report by Lee and others
