Abstract : The Coastal Benthic Boundary Layer Special Research Program (CBBLSRP) is a 5-year Office of Naval Research program that addresses the physical characterization and modeling of benthic boundary layer processes and the impact of these processes on seafloor structure, properties, and behavior. In this report, results from 2 years of experiments are summarized. These experiments were conducted on the soft methane-rich sediments of Eckemforde Bay (Baltic Sea) and on the sandy relict sediments of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Year-end reports for the 23 projects supported by the CBBLSRP are included along with a summary of the first 2 years' accomplishments. A list of publications supported by the CBBLSRP is included.
