In 1985, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed a strategy to address the research necessary for measuring possible environmental and public health effects of incinerating hazardous wastes at sea. Although existing data indicated that effects would be minimal. These methods have been developed and evaluated in a series of land-based tests, and they have been found suitable for use in research to be conducted at sea. Plans for conducting research at sea will include emissions sampling and conduct of toxicity tests in conjunction with monitoring for emissions constituents in the air, surface water, sea-surface microlayer, and organisms that live in surface waters (neuston). The paper describes development of EPA's ocean incineration regulation and an operating program to administer the regulation as well as EPA's research strategy.
