Everything goes somewhere

The proceedings of the conference TRACER 6 'The 6th International Conference on Tracers and Tracing Methods' are now online at www.epj-conferences.org.

The proceedings of the conference TRACER 6 ‘The 6th International Conference on Tracers and Tracing Methods’ are now online at www.epj-conferences.org.The paper written by Kevin Black, Partrac and J Sloan/T Gries of Washing State Dept. of Ecology, “Everything goes somewhere; tracking the movement of contaminated sediments in an industrialised estuary using dual signature sediment tracers” has the following reference: EPJ Web of Conferences 50, 04001 (2013).Source control i.e. the reduction of contamination from upstream or diffuse sources, is a critical element in any management plan for contaminated waterways. If source control measures are not successfully implemented, then a situation exists in which contamination will continue through time, and the cleanup of waterway segments becomes increasingly problematic. To provide greater understanding of the issues surrounding source control, it is essential to have some knowledge of contaminant sources and transport pathways of contaminated particulates. This paper introduces a new and novel “dual signature” tracer product, and describes the particle tracking technique on a practical level through a study example in the Lower Duwamish Waterway, Washington, USA.
