L'accès des navires aux zones portuaires est assuré par le dragage de quantités importantes de sédiments. Les matériaux dragués ne peuvent être immergés que s'ils présentent toutes les garanties d'innocuité pour le milieu marin. Après un rappel sur la géochimie et la toxicité des différents contaminants qui sont adsorbés sur les sédiments, le présent ouvrage propose une approche globale de l'évaluation des risques environnementaux liés aux immersions. Les méthodes de caractérisation des risques à partir de l'analyse chimique (Géodrisk) et de tests de toxicité sélectionnés, de bioévaluation de la qualité des sédiments par la définition d'un Indice d'évaluation de l'endofaune côtière (I2EC) et de biomonitoring actif des zones d'immersion, sont décrites de manière détaillée. Cette démarche ascendante et itérative, appliquée au contexte réglementaire français, permet de satisfaire aux recommandations des conventions internationales et en particulier aux lignes directrices OSPAR.

Submarine commander Aiexi Novskoyy has been sprung from prison by a multibillion-dollar organization with a very special mission in mind. The company has designed a new submarine—the Vepr—which they will use to wreak havoc on international trade. To test its new weapon, Alexi must sink a cruise ship carrying the entire brass of the U.S Navy—effectively decapitating the American fleet. The legendary USS Devilfish is called in to stop the catastrophe, only to be ambushed by the ultra-advanced Vepr. With the Devilfish down, the Navy sends Captain “Kelly” McKee and the newest sub in the U.S. arsenal to hunt down and destroy the super sub. What they don’t realize is that Alexi has his own plans, which have him heading straight for the shores of America.

For Kivrin Engle, preparing an on-site study of one of the deadliest eras in humanity's history was as simple as receiving inoculations against the diseases of the fourteenth century and inventing an alibi for a woman traveling alone. For her instructors in the twenty-first century, it meant painstaking calculations and careful monitoring of the rendezvous location where Kivrin would be received. But a crisis strangely linking past and future strands Kivrin in a bygone age as her fellows try desperately to rescue her. In a time of superstition and fear, Kivrin - barely of age herself - finds she has become an unlikely angel of hope during one of history's darkest hours.
