Locations of sediment samples with Clostridium perfringens in Long Island Sound, USGS OFR 00-304

Abstract: The purpose of this layer is to disseminate a digital version of the
location of samples containing Clostridium perfringens, and
concentrations of Clostridium perfringens in those samples.

This GIS layer contains a point layer showing the location of
surficial sediment samples in Long Island Sound containing Clostridium
perfringens and the concentration of Clostridium perfringens in those

Grab samples were frozen at sea, and freeze-dried in the lab. Analyses
for Clostridium perfringens were performed by Biological Analytical
Labs of North Kingston, RI, according to methods described by Emerson
and Cabelli (1982) and Bisson and Cabelli (1979). Data consisting of
station navigation and Clostridium perfringens concentrations in the
surficial sediments were inmported as text files.
