The fourth and final volume of the series is intended to complement the guidance that is provided in the other three volumes by supporting the design and implementation of assessments of sediment quality conditions in marine and estuarine ecosystems. Accordingly, the document describes the objectives of a detailed investigation for marine and estuarine sites (Chapter 2). In addition, guidance is provided on the collection of physical, chemical, and biological data and information to support such a detailed site investigation (Chapter 3). Furthermore, guidance is provided on the interpretation of the data collected in the detailed site investigation (Chapter 4). Together, this guidance is intended to provide readers with some of the information needed to design and implement detailed investigations of marine and estuarine sites with contaminated sediments.
