Title: Tern Island Sediment Samples, Tern Island HI, 1999, US Coast Guard Civil Engineering Unit
Abstract: This dataset was derived from CAD data originally published in URS Greiner Woodward Clyde, 1999, Environmental Investigation: Former U.S. Coast Guard LORAN Station, Tern Island, French Frigate Shoals, Hawaii. URS Greiner Woodward Clyde (URSGWC) was retained by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Civil Engineering Unit (CEU) to conduct an environmental investigation at the former USCG long range navigation (LORAN) station on Tern Island. The investigation concentrated on the northwestern corner of Tern Island where the greatest environmental impact from the US military's past occupation of the island appears to have occurred.
Purpose: This investgation was conducted to refine the lateral and vertical extent of lead- and PCB-contaminated soils in the northwestern portion of Tern Island.
