Abstract:

A multiparameter survey consisting of physical, chemical, and biological measurements was performed to map the copper distribution in Kings Bay an Cumberland Sound, Georgia. The results of this study suggest 1 Kings Bay was probably not a source of elevated copper levels during the study interval, 2 dewatering of the dredge spoil containment area does not appear to be a souce of cooper pollution, and 3 concentrations in the Lower Turning Basin of Kings Bay were slightly higher than levels in the Upper Basin or in Cumberland Sound, suggesting possible input from copper antifouling coatings.
