Sand is laid down in river mouth bars which may coalesce into delta front sand sheets. Beyond the sand finer sediments are deposited in the prodelta, a marine environment wherein 75% of the actual deltamass accumulates. Epifauna, also called epibenthos, are aquatic animals that live on the bottom substratum as opposed to within it, that is, the benthic fauna that live on top of the sediment surface at the seafloor.

Macrofauna. Macrofauna are benthic or soil organisms which are retained on a mm sieve. Studies in the deep sea define macrofauna as animals retained on a mm sieve to.

The eastern Gulf (MAFLA) continental margin may be conveniently divided into two parts of opposing history and character. West of Cape San Blas lies the eastern limb of the Gulf Coast Geosyncline whose surface expression is a clastic sand body, called the MAFLA Sand Sheet, grading westward into the muds of the Mississippi by: Sediment cores C2 and C3 were composed by fine grained sediments (silt + clay≥90%), with low OM (–%) and CaCO 3 (–%) concentrations (Supplementary information).The MS values exhibited a strong peak below 70 cm (gray dashed lines), that progressively decreased towards the sediment surface until reaching basal levels.

From its traditional source of Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota, it flows generally south for 2, miles (3, km) to the Mississippi River Delta in the Gulf of Mexico.

Country: United States. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has been involved with assessment of sediment quality data for over three decades. In contrast to surface waters and ground waters, sediments have no federal or state standards or criteria.

In the absence of standards, Florida has produced guidance documents to assist scientists and managers interpret sediment quality. Mississippi Sound and the mainland beaches are in a microtidal, low-energy, riverine-influenced system and, correspondingly, sediments are dominantly muddy (Otvos, ), although localized sandy sediments do occur on the periphery of the basin (nearshore) and in areas adjacent to eroding sandy Pleistocene units (Otvos, ; Upshaw et al., ).

Coastal erosion in Louisiana. Coastal Erosion in Louisiana is the process of steady depletion of wetlands along the state's coastline in marshes, swamps, and barrier islands, particularly affecting the alluvial basin surrounding the mouth of the Mississippi River at the foot of the Gulf of Mexico on the Eastern half of the state's coast.

The Mississippi River is, in many ways, the nation's best known and most important river system. Mississippi River water quality is of paramount importance for sustaining the many uses of the river including drinking water, recreational and commercial activities, and support for the river's ecosystems and the environmental goods and services they provide.

Waves and winds along the coast are both eroding rock and depositing sediment on a continuous basis, and rates of erosion and deposition vary considerably from day to day along such zones. The energy reaching the coast can become high during storms, and such high energies make coastal zones areas of high vulnerability to natural hazards.

The study area (fig. 1) includes the coastal areas offshore of eastern Mississippi and westernmost Alabama. The area is adjacent to Biloxi Bay, the Pascagoula River, Mobile Bay, and numerous bayous. Samples were taken between the coast and the barrier islands (Mississippi Sound) and seaward of the barrier islands (Gulf of Mexico) and represent.An extensive line of levees has prevented the Mississippi River from flooding adjacent land and delivering the water and sediment that marshes need to stay healthy.
