This report documenting tracer studies is part of a larger, multi-disciplinary study entitled "Boston Harbor Study of Sources and Transport of Harbor Sediment Contamination: Transport of Contaminated Sediments in Boston Harbor." The specific goal of the tracer studies was to better understand water column dispersion in near shore areas and to qualify the rate of initial deposition. During this project five fluorescent tracer studies were performed: three in Fort Point Channel and two in the Nut Island sludge dischage off of Long Island. Some settling column tests were also performed in the laboratory and analyzed results of an earlier dye study performed as part of the CSO Facilities Plan.
