Buried waste at the seabed is an immense resource of toxins. yet, quite often, waste websites aren't identified till a major challenge happens, or are usually not thoroughly mapped. fresh examples round Europe contain WWI and WWII ammunition unload websites (e.g. Beufort Dyke within the UK), dumped nuclear submarines within the Arctic Seas, clandestine or hidden toxic-waste within the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. no matter if correctly documented, waste websites evolve with time (dumped fabric can circulation with currents and tides, in particular on a scale of a long time; toxic-material barrels can corrode and leak). This ebook exhibits the result of a concerted EU-funded attempt to take on this challenge and locate leading edge how you can determine and map poisonous waste websites at the seabed, whether or not they were coated with sediments or now not. those effects are appropriate to any quarter at the seabed within the complete world.
