Abstract:

The objectives of this study are to measure rates and depths over which macroinvertebrates in selected functional groups transport sediment and create sedimentary structure and, to derive quantitative mechanistic models for these property distributions. These observations and models will be integrated into mass-transport modeling of dissolved and particulate materials in marine sediments developed under this program. This work is a collaborative effort among Dr. Samuel Bentley Louisiana State University, Dr. Carla Koretsky Western Michigan University and Dr. Yoko Furukawa Naval Research Laboratory, originally started in 1997 under ONR322GG funding. We will focus on the synthesis of results during this phase. This report summarizes the research activities of Dr. Bentley at LSU.
