New Book, QUANTIFICATION OF POLLUTION LEVELS IN HARBOUR SEDIMENTS, published by Tahoka Press11/07/2013
The preliminary project is intended to be the precursor of a complete, ongoing inventory of sediment contamination around the world for use by environmental managers and by legislators and regulators responsible for the marine environment, its health and sustainability. The book helps answer the question “Should we continue to use the currently available biocidal ship hull antifouling paints?”
