Sustainable management of oil polluting wrecks and chemical munitions dump sites
Paper i proceeding, 2017

Dumped chemical weapons that are corroding and exposed to the marine environment can cause contamination and health risks for marine fauna and humans. This paper describes some of the work that is done in the EU-DAIMON (Decision Aid for Marine Munitions) project including the development of a decision support method and previous field results that indicate that bottom trawling re-suspend sediments and spread contaminants and that recently caught fish at the Maseskar dump site contains detectable concentrations of chemical weapons from World War II.
