By Philippe Blondel,Andrea Caiti

Buried waste at the seabed is an important resource of pollutants. yet, quite often, waste websites usually are not identified until eventually a significant challenge happens, or aren't effectively mapped. fresh examples round Europe contain WWI and WWII ammunition sell off 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 safely documented, waste websites evolve with time (dumped fabric can movement with currents and tides, particularly on a scale of a long time; toxic-material barrels can corrode and leak). This booklet indicates the result of a concerted EU-funded attempt to take on this challenge and locate leading edge how one can establish and map poisonous waste websites at the seabed, whether or not they were coated with sediments or no longer. those effects are acceptable to any zone at the seabed within the whole world.
