Sediment grab data from October 1994 in the Lower Bay of New York/New Jersey Harbor

Sediment grab samples were collected using a Shipek grab at pre-determined locations in the harbor. Grain size distributions and organic content were measured and used to assess sediment conditions in New York/New Jersey Harbor and to compare with sediment profile images taken at the same stations. All data were entered into a database, and the database was then used in a Geographic Information System (GIS) to characterize sediment environment in New York/New Jersey Harbor.
