Quantification of Pollution Levels in Harbour Sediments – A GeoSpatial Perspective is the result of a preliminary research project commissioned by Hydrex to quantify and map the levels of pollution in sediments around the world, with particular regard to the heavy metals and toxic substances contained in ship hull antifouling paints. 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?”
