Abstract: from the introduction, ". . .The pervasive goals of this study are to: (1) develop a predictive capability for assessing the environmental impacts that would result from a variety of sand and gravel mining activities--different techniques of mining, different rates and patterns of removal; and (2) to use this information to develop appropriate plans for management of this resource. The strategies must be consistent with the natural prevailing processes and with the uses of the Harbor perceived by the public to be most important. This requires that the "appropriate" strategies for management of the sand and gravel resource must be consistent with management of the Harbor's other resources. . ."
