Summary
Abstract: The purpose of this datalayer is to disseminate a digital version of
the map showing the locations of surficial samples used in the
analysis of metal distributions in Long Island Sound.

This GIS layer contains a point overlay showing the location of
surficial samples used in the analysis of metal distributions in Long
Island Sound. Attribute information containing the chemical analysis
values are also included in the data layer.
