SAN FRANCISCO BAR DREDGE MATERIAL DISPOSAL

Richard M. Ecker, John F. Sustar

Abstract


Studies were conducted on San Francisco Bar in June 1971 and February 1972 to monitor dredge material disposal. The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of dredging and material disposal on the physical and biological environment and to develop dredging procedures and disposal sites to mitigate possible adverse effects.. This paper presents the results of the material dispersion portion of the study including bottom deposition, current measurements and aerial photography. The biological studies and water quality monitoring are not presented.
