Abstract : Interest in the effects of suspended loads and deposited sediments on estuarine organisms has been accelerated by the present need to establish water quality criteria and standards on a national scale and by a wide variety of coastal engineering projects which involve temporary or enduring changes in the suspended loads and deposition of sediments in rivers, bays, sounds, channels, or coastal areas. Estuarine sites selected for projects are often inhabited by unusually important biotic communities which become centers of conflict among navigational, recreational, commercial fisheries, conservation, and municipal interests. This set of abstracts and summaries of pertinent reports has been prepared to assist in the evaluation of probable effects of suspended and deposited sediments.
