4
In addition to ICONN vibracores (Area 2)
5
Not including N.Y. Bight samples in progress
6
Spreadsheets are being migrated to ACCESS relational database
7
Production, demand, resources
8
Includes borings & Shelby tubes
9
Contaminated sediment database includes texture etc; total of ~7,500 samples incl. In No. 3
10
Data compiled from NY-NJ state and other sources
