Description Office of Water Policy, U.S. Department of the Interior Grant/Contract No. 14-31-0001-4011, -5011; 14-34-0001-7025, -7026 (A-043-HI) Semiquantitative X-ray diffraction was used to determine the relative abundance of minerals in sediments from three estuaries on Oahu, Hawaii. The watersheds of the three sites represent diverse environments: Kaneohe Bay, a windward northeast facing lagoon-bay complex; Maunalua Bay, a leeward south facing, heavily urbanized area; Pearl Harbor, a blend of urban-agricultural estuarine complex on the leeward central portion of Oahu. Five suites of mineralogic assemblages were found: basaltic,...
