This chapter describes the range of issues related to the uncertainty associated with sediment ecological risk assessments (SERA), including an evaluation of: (1) uncertainty associated with the overall SERA framework; (2) the effects of false positive and false negative errors associated with sediment toxicity tests; (3) spatial and temporal distributions of sediment contamination; (4) sampling errors; and (5) uncertainties associated with transport and fate models.
