Twenty-eight duplicate back beach samples were processed from Escambia, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin, Wakulla, Taylor, Levy, and Pasco Counties. The following is a list of Duplicate Samples that were processed and compared to their original samples.

All other samples were processed using Sieve Set #2. Please see Table B1 for a complete list of sieves used in each set and their manufacturers.
