SETAC announces ERA of Contaminated Sediments book



The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) 
announces another new publication.

ECOLOGICAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS

Edited by Christopher G. Ingersoll, Tom Dillon, Gregory R. Biddinger

ECOLOGICAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS 
resulted from the proceedings of a Pellston Workshop held 23-28 April 
1995 at Pacific Grove, California.  Although sediment 
toxicity/bioaccumulation testing and environmental risk assessment 
(ERA) originated together in the early 1980s, their separate 
evolution prompted experts from 21 states and 6 countries to 
integrate sediment quality assessment with ERA during this workshop.  
By critically evaluating existing approaches, this group of experts 
identifies principles and practices for sediment ecological risk 
assessment (SERA) that are designed to improve the scientific and 
regulatory communities' ability to assess environmental risks 
associated with contaminated sediments.  The authors pinpoint 
critical applications (product assessment, navigational dredging, 
site clean-up) and pertinent issues (ecological relevance, 
methodological uncertainty) that address the evaluation of sediments 
as both a source and a sink for persistent aquatic contaminats.
