A broad scope examination was made of barged ocean disposal of liquid and solid wastes. Basic discussions include: The physical characteristics of various selected wastes; Economics as a function of haul distance; Reported effects of past discharge operations; and The relative importance of environmental factors such as density and current profiles. The major emphasis of the report centers on physical fate prediction methods and describes the physical transport in four separate steps: convective descent, collapse, long term dispersion, and bottom transport or resuspension. An existing mathematical model developed by Koh and Fan is used and demonstrates the complex nature of some of the more obvious parameters. (Author)
