Description: A large number of
moorings were deployed in the summer of 2001 off
Huntington Beach CA to monitor coastal ocean process that transport suspended
material across the shelf. This program was supported by the Orange County
Sanitation District (OCSD) to determine if bacteria from their ocean outfall
was responsible for the continuing contamination of local beaches. The
study determined that OSCD's outfall was not the cause of beach contamination.
