The scientific and engineering requirements were evaluated for research related to coastal wastes management based upon 16 background papers in 4 fields: Monitoring (Floatable matter, films, persistent pesticides, persistent organics, heavy metals, acute toxicity, biostimulants, biomass, and community-structure productivity); Physical effects (Interactions including dilution and diffuser design, physical processes in estuaries and coastal areas, turbulent flux, decay of nonconservative substances, interactions between floatable and settleable components of wastes); Chemical effects (Trace metals, complexing, inorganic and organic aggregation, diagenesis, nutrient fluxes, organic matter distribution, phytoplankton blooms, anoxic conditions, biochemical concentrations, sublethal effects, oil spillage, synthetic organics, and human physical activities); and Biological effects (Effects of outfall areas, health significance of wastes, biological concentration, DDT, biological communities, tolerance limits for major uses, improvement of systems and models, criteria for review of proposals for ecological study requirements, and evaluation of new waste products).
