DEMONSTRATION AND COMMERCIALIZATION OF THE SEDIMENT ECOSYSTEM ASSESSMENT PROTOCOL (SEAP): ESTCP COST AND PERFORMANCE REPORT
Rosen, G.
ESTCP Project 201130, 83 pp, 2017

This project was designed to demonstrate, commercialize, and promote regulatory awareness and acceptance of the Sediment Ecosystem Assessment Protocol (SEAP), an integrated assessment ecological risk assessment approach developed under SERDP Project ER-1550, which was focused largely on the performance of a field-deployed device referred to as the Sediment Ecotoxicity Assessment Ring (SEA Ring). The now commercially available SEA Ring, developed and refined under this project, consists of a circular carousel capable of housing an array of in situ bioassay chambers and passive sampling devices. Results from a total of eight SEA Ring deployments at three demonstration sites, in addition to third-party technology verification under EPA's Environmental Technology Verification program, were used to assess performance. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/45724/426238/file/ER-201130%20Cost%20&%20Performance%20Report.pdf
