Recent Marine Sediments of Bolinas Bay, California: Part A -- Introduction and Grain Size Analysis


The following work is part of a long term study of sediment trans port on the Continental Shelf of Central California. In particular, it is hoped that the data presented here will be useful also to the general study of the factors that influence the natural environment of Bolinas Lagoon now being conducted as a cooperative effort involving the University of California, Berkeley; the U. S. Corps of Engineers; the U.S. Geological Survey; the Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Service; and consultants for the Bolinas Harbor District.

The analyses of the marine sediments of Bolinas Bay were done at the University of California, Berkeley, utilizing the facilities of the Departments of Civil Engineering and Geology and the Institute of Marine Resources. The results of the marine study will be presented in three separate volumes:

Part A — Introduction and Grain Size Data Part B — Mineralogical Data Part C — Interpretation and Summary of Results
