Development and Verification of a Kinetic Model of Pollutant Desorption from Dredge Sediment and Sewage Sludge
DiToro, Dominic M.
Mahony, John D.
This final report encompasses a two phase research effort. The initial direction was toward the development and verification of a kinetic model of heavy metal desorption from dredge sediment and sewage sludge. The second phase used the insights and results gained from that effort to begin an investigation of the toxicity of cadmium in sediments. This change of direction was agreed upon by both the Manhattan college and EPA Narragansett Laboratory researchers and was reflected in the renewal application for the second year of funding. The report is divided into distinct parts, reflecting each topic.
