Abstract : New York Bight Study, An Annotated Bibliography of the New York Bight: Emphasis on Biological Studies The New York Bight Biological Review Program (BBRP) was one portion of a larger effort to determine the feasibility of various modeling and monitoring strategies for measuring effects from pollution in the NY Bight. The specific goal of the BBRP was to identify the information gaps that need to be filled in order to efficiently examine impacts to marine biological resources from large-scale projects within the Bight. The early stages of the BBRP involved searching various databases for published studies about the Bight. Results of these searches were compiled in an annotated bibliography to facilitate preparation of the final BBRP report and various working documents during the 2-year effort of the BBRP. The BBRP focused on potential biological impacts, so the bibliography primarily has a biological focus. There are 579 entries, most related to the hypoxia event observed during 1976 or the Marine Ecosystems and Analysis Program conducted by the NY Sea Grant Program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. A cross-referenced keyword index is provided at the end to facilitate use. Copies in electronic format are available upon request.
