The objective of this report is to provide the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Strategic Assessment and Special Studies with a technical basis for making decisions on research priorities and resource allocation as these relate to the question of ocean dumping. The program was organized into four tasks. First, historical trends in waste generation, disposal, and legislative and technological factors (as of 1982) were reviewed to indicate the likeihood that a particular waste type would be ocean dumped in the future. Second, the environmental implications of land-based alternatives were reviewed to provide background on the nature of risks associated with these alternatives. Third, the environmental implications of ocean disposal were reviewed for wastes and their constituents. Finally, based on the information generated in the first three tasks, recommendations are provided on future research needs and these are assigned either high, moderate, or low priority status.
