Methods for controlling the release of mercury from sediments have been developed, and the effects of dredging on the redistribution of mercury have been evaluated. Laboratory studies consisted of both partitioning and aquarium experiments using artificially contaminated sediments as well as sediments from the polluted fieldogressive waves having an amplitude of two feet. One foot wide neoprene backed polyurethane foams were utilized as the sorbent material. The experimental results indicate that the oil pickup rates will vary with the belt speed, oil slick thickness and belt porosities. The recovered liquid contained approximately 50-70% oil at 0.10 inch slick thickness. A conceptual design of a five foot wide boat mounted skimmer capable of harvesting approximately 5 acres per hour of spilled oil is presented.
