    The surficial deposits control the vegetation types. In areas under­ lain by till, mixed hardwoods are common, whereas pitch pines, juniper, and particularly grasses are more abundant in areas of sand and gravel, sediments that are more permeable than till and hence dry faster.

In , NOAA’s National Status and Trends Program published a study of sediment toxicity in the coastal bays that surround Long Island Sound in New York and Connecticut (Wolfe, et al., ).The study analyzed sediment samples in four different ways.

    Long Island Sound (LIS) is a large estuary on the Atlantic coast of the highly developed northeast United States. However, limited spatially comprehensive habitat information has been available at sufficient resolution to inform planning and management of conflicting uses. Sediment Texture. Reading Question 1. What is sediment texture?Sedimentary Texture • What is sediment texture? • Size, shape, and arrangement of grains • Grain size • Grain shape and surface features • Porosity and permeability • Fabric - sedimentary structures • Reflects, weathering, erosion, transport, depositional environment.

    The Thickness of Glacial Sediments in Connecticut and the Long Island Sound Basin layer contains interpretive polygon data representing the thickness of glacial sediments in Connecticut and the Long Island Sound Basin. Compiled as part of the Quaternary Geologic Map of Connecticut and Long Island Sound Basin, Stone and others (, ). Clay minerals in sediments from the channels were similar in amount and characteristics to clay minerals in sediments from Long Island Sound but differed from those in the surrounding soils in the watershed. Thus, the main source of deposits in the channels is the bottom sediment of Long Island Sound which is transported to the channels by.

The sediment grain-size dataset provided here contains information on the collection, location, description, and texture of sediments at 13 stations occupied during the R/V Rafael cruise All analyses were conducted in the sedimentation laboratory at the USGS Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center.

The purpose is to disseminate a digital version of a regional map showing the distribution of surficial sediments in Long Island Sound. Grain size is the most basic attribute of sediment texture, and texture controls many benthic ecological and chemical processes.

Multibeam bathymetric data and seismic-reflection profiles collected in eastern Long Island Sound and western Block Island Sound reveal previously unrecognized glacial features and modern bedforms.
