  • CHAPTER 2. BOTTOM CURRENTS AND BOTTOM SEDIMENT MOBILITY IN THE OFFSHORE MIDDLE ATLANTIC BIGHT, 1976-1977 by Bradford Butman and Marlene Noble
  • CHAPTER 3. SESTON IN MIDDLE ATLANTIC SHELF AND SLOPE WATERS 1976-1977 by John D. Milliman, Michael H. Bothner, and Carol M. Parmenter
  • CHAPTER 4. SUBMERSIBLE OBSERVATIONS OF THE BOTTOM IN LEASE AREAS IN THE BALTIMORE CANYON TROUGH by Sally A. Wood and David W. Folger
  • CHAPTER 5. MEDIUM-SCALE POTENTIALLY MOBILE BED FORMS ON THE MID-ATLANTIC CONTINENTAL SHELF by David C. Twichell
  • CHAPTER 6. C15+ HYDROCARBON GEOCHEMISTRY OF MID-ATLANTIC OUTER CONTINENTAL SHELF SEDIMENTS by R. E. Miller, D. M. Schultz, H. Lerch, D. Ligon, D. Doyle, and C. Gary
  • CHAPTER 7. GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING STUDIES IN THE BALTIMORE CANYON TROUGH AREA by Dwight A. Sangrey and Harley J. Knebel
  • CHAPTER 8. AN INSTRUMENT SYSTEM FOR LONG-TERM SEDIMENT TRANSPORT STUDIES ON THE CONTINENTAL SHELF by Bradford Butman and David w. Folger

Description

This volume contains eight chapters devoted to the following categories: Introduction, bottom currents and bottom sediment mobility, seston, submersible observations of the bottom in lease areas, medium-scale potentially mobile bed forms, C15+ hydrocarbon geochemistry of sediments, geotechnical engineering studies, and an instrument system for long-term sediment transport studies on the continental shelf.
