Contaminant Monitoring for NMFS Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program
Because of increasing concern that chemical contamination may impair the health of marine mammals, a better understanding of the extent of contamination and types of toxic effects in these...

Potential for the Bioremediation of Contaminated Dredge Material
Sediment contamination frequently impacts the ability of ports to maintain and deepen shipping channels. One of the common contaminants in channel sediments is polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons...

The NS&T National Benthic Surveillance Project: Contaminants in Fish Tissues
The National Benthic Surveillance Project, part of NOAA's National Status and Trends (NS&T) Program, has been regularly measuring more than 70 contaminants in liver tissue of selected...

Technogenic Pollution of the Caucasian Black Sea Coastal Zone and Specific Features of Self-Purification
Within the scope of ecological monitoring in 1989-1991 pollution of river and sea water and bottom sediments with oil products (OP, poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), pesticides (PC), toxic...

A Numerical Model for Multiphase Flow and Transport Assessment of Migration of Petroleum Contaminants in the Subsurface
Modeling assessment of the subsurface migration and fate of petroleum hydrocarbons plays a critical role in addressing the environmental impacts of their numerous underground releases...

Applying the ARMOS and MOFAT Models to a Major Oil Spill
A study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of a crude oil pipeline rupture in the recharge area of the aquifer serving most of West Tennessee. The main challenge was to model the volume...
