Description: 

To measure depositional fluxes of sediment and sediment-water exchange rates of trace metals in order to develop a sediment budget for Baltimore Harbor, examine rates and locations of high rates of metal deposition and develop sediment-water exchange procedures for metals and to determine if such exchanges are important to the biota and overall metal budgets.
