Abstract:

The objective of this project was to provide an assessment of sediment quality in the area of Naval Station San Diego NAVSTA. The study focused on two issues the characterization of sediments including contaminant levels, extent and related ecological consequences, and the evaluation of processes that control the levels, transport, and biological exposure of any potential contaminants of concern. Sediments were characterized based on a range of physical, chemical, and toxicological testing. Processes evaluated included contaminant sources, sediment transport, sediment-water exchange, and degradation. As part of the object, new technologies for assessment and remediation were demonstrated and validated alongside traditional methods.
