Abstract : This document is the final summary report for research conducted under Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) parent grant N000l4-93-l-6004, "Physical and biological mechanisms influencing the development and evolution of sedimentary structure," funded through the Coastal Benthic Boundary Layer Special Research Program during fiscal years 1993 and 1994. We participated in three research cruises in winter and spring 1993, and one in summer 1994; analyses were carried out through 1993 and 1994, and results presented in 1994 and 1995. The description of methods, results, and discussion in this report reflects that chronology.
