|Abstract:||This study has been concerned with the evaluation of geological, water chemistry, and biological samples taken at the Pearl Harbor disposal site, Oahu, Hawaii, immediately after and for a 6-month period following the disposal of dredge spoil. The present report deals with the longer term effets of dredge spoil disposal, its transport along the bottom or in the water column, and its effects on the pelagic and benthic faunal communities. The general conclusions based on the results of the sampling program are that minimal adverse environmental effects have resulted from spoil disposal at the recommended site.|
