Hydrographical, geochemical and biological investigations (WP3)

Acquiring hydrographical, geo- and hydrochemical, and hydrobiological information around the dumpsites (seawater structure and motion, general properties of bottom sediments, presence of toxic compounds).

Modelling of migration of toxic compounds and breakdown products (WP4)

The findings are analysed together with 3D models of physical processes that control propagation of toxic compounds in the bottom sediments seawater system.
