Summary
Abstract: The purpose is to disseminate a digital version of a regional map
showing the distribution of surficial sediments in Long Island
Sound. Grain size is the most basic attribute of sediment texture, and
texture controls many benthic ecological and chemical processes.

This GIS layer contains an computer generated model of the
distribution of surficial sediments in Long Island Sound.
