      Abstract: The paper describes a two-year eight-season synoptic study to determine whether twenty-five years of intensive oil drilling and production had produced observable environmental or ecological change in Timbalier Bay and the adjacent offshore area in southern Louisiana. The primary approach involved comprehensive comparison of sites which were ecologically comparable and experienced. Placement the problem with dredge spoils, not pollutants, officials say dredged from the bottom of New York Harbor and material coming out of Beach Creek in North Wildwood. off Raritan Bay.
