Grigg, Richard W. , School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, and University of Hawaii at Manoa, Unpublished material, Impact of Point and Non-point Source Pollution on Coral Reef Ecosystems In Mamala Bay, Oahu, Hawaii based on Water Quality Measurements and Benthic Surveys in 1993-1994 (NODC Accession 0001172).
Mamala Bay Project Dept. of Oceanography University of Hawaii at Manoa
The purpose of the Mamala Bay Study is to develop an Integrated Coastal Management Plan in order to protect the environment and public health of this unique embayment off leeward Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. Having resulted from a Consent Decree of the United States District Court in Honolulu, Hawaii, the study called specifically for: 1) An analysis of point and non-point source discharges into Mamala Bay, 2) A determination of the effects of these discharges on water quality, ecosystems and public health, and 3) A management plan to reduce pollution and improve water quality in the bay. The study was divided into twelve sub-projects. This report presents the results of one part of MB-9 which dealt with ecosystem response and was charged with identifying pollution impacts on target or receptor aquatic species in the water column and benthic environments.
