Estuarine pollution gradient.Transect through dredgings disposal site, 7 stationson a 10m contour, 4 reps, (craib cores and Day grab (subsamples of 50ml syringe to a depth of 5cm)) more

Data were collected to look for changes in meiofauna community structures through a disposal site, to assess the utility of meiofauna samples collected by taking subsamples from grab samples compared to samples collected with a Craib corer and finally to relate the observed changes to the measured environmental variables
