The oxidation-reduction potential (O/R) of Barataria Bay surface water varied from +30 to +300 millivolts. The low readings were found in Hackberry Bay near oil operations and in Lake Grande Ecaillc near the Freeport Sulfur Company plant. In many cases the O/R of the water 3-4 inches
above the bottom was higher than at the surface. This was presumed to be due to the extensive activity of algae at this level. Most of the muds tested in Barataria Bay gave readings below 0 millivolts but there were a few positive readings. The lowest readings on mud (-200 to -300 millivolts)
were in the same areas showing low surface readings.
