Abstract : Preliminary laboratory analyses are presented of underway bottom samples and core samples from the southern approach channel to the Chesapeake Bay. The sediment investigation included a size analysis, megascopic logging of the cores, pH measurements, organic analysis, and textural analysis of the sands. The shell accumulation below the sediment is explained by a traction-zone mechanism.
