Operation of a waste disposal system for oceanic dispersion offered an opportunity to develop a mathematical model of dispersion behind a moving barge. The model takes into account the vertical temperature-density structure of the ocean, and the density and settling characteristics of the wastes. It was verified with several sets of field data obtained behind the barge. Studies on marine life of the disposal area showed no changes definitely attributable to the disposal operation. Cost data on the barging operation are given.
