Habitat Development Field Investigations, Miller Sands Marsh and Upland Habitat Development Site, Columbia River, Oregon: Summary Report

Description: From preface: "This report presents a summary of studies conducted at Miller Sands Island, a tidal freshwater, dredged material disposal site in the Columbia River, Oregon. Studies were conducted from March 1975 to August 1977 to determine the feasibility of developing productive aquatic and terrestrial wildlife habitat on dredged material and to determine if development of wildlife habitat is a viable alternative to other dredged material disposal options."

Modifications to Filling and Emptying System of Lock No. 1, Mississippi River, Minneapolis, Minnesota =: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: From abstract: The existing locks at Locks and Dam No. 1 were constructed between 1929 and 1932. Problems have been experienced with accumulation of ice and debris at the intakes, air entrapment in the culverts of the filling and emptying system, excessive turbulence in the lock chamber during filling, and hazardous conditions downstream from the locks during emptying operations.

Primary Productivity of Minor Marsh Plants in Delaware, Georgia and Maine

Description: Abstract: "This report summarizes the importance of common species of salt marsh plants inhabiting wetlands of the eastern U.S. coast. An evaluation of the ecological significance of the plants is based on their rates of primary production, morality, and contribution of detritus to the estuarine dependent systems. The data are important in reaching decisions relative to the deposition of dredged material in these coastal wetland systems."
