Most studies of near interface sediments assume that chemically and biologicalJy important properties are stratified vertically in a deposit. Sampling patterns reflect this assumption and little attention has been paid to three-dimensional heterogeneity. In this study the effects of burrow structures formed by Amphitrite ornata on the distribution of physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of a deposit are investigated....
