The paper discusses the development of the Marine Incineration Bioassay Sampling System (MIBAS) for at-sea incineration testing, as part of EPA's overall evaluation of the potential benefits and risks associated with the incineration of hazardous wastes at sea. The related strategy focuses on the acquisition of scientific information and on the development of new techniques designed to expand the knowledge of: (1) the chemical nature of incinerator emissions; (2) the behavior and fate of incinerator emission plumes; (3) the possible extent of exposure of marine organisms to these emissions; and (4) the possible environmental consequences of such an exposure.
