More on sediment in the Virgin Islands from construction.

I just glanced over a new publication on CD that I got from

Jenny Waddell, the Technical lead for The State of Coral Reef Ecosystems of the United States and Pacific Freely Associated States: 2008
1305 East West Highway
SSMC-IV, N/SCI-1
Silver Spring, MD 20910
301-713-3028 x174  —

The State of Coral Reef Ecosystems of the US and Pacific Freely Associated States: 2008 — NOAA Technical Memorandum NOS NCCOS 73. — it’s 569 pages long

Theres a 71 page chapter on the USVI, and I happened to find this excerpt (JPEG attached) about Botany Bay sediment pollution on the north shore of STT.

You can get a free copy of the CD by following instructions at —

If you just want the chapter on the USVI, you can download any chapter of the document at
