Abstract

Contaminated dredged material in drying beds have the potential to vaporize both volatile and semi-volatile organic and inorganic compounds. These are special surface soils created by dredging contaminated bed sediments form aquatic environments and stored in confined aquatic disposal facilities. The air emissions from dredged material can be influenced primarily by the air velocity, air relative humidity, air temperature and sediment moisture content. This paper describes some preliminary experiments on these effects studied in laboratory diffusion cells.
