       Dear List Members.

       I'm a Oceanographer, actualy a graduate student (MSc Thesis) in the
Coastal Studies Laboratory (LEC) on Federal University of Bahia (Brazil).
In my thesis I'm studying the percolation of groundwater to the reefs of
northern Bahia.  This region has a recent urbanization (by tourism)  with
a poor sewage captation and treated system.   The possible contamination
of groundwater will toward to the reefs and eutrophication will increase
the demise of them.

       If you have any information, research, coments, references, ...
about this subject, please contact myself.

       Thanks in advance.  Greetings from Brazil!!
