|Should we be concerned about war remnants in the North Sea and other oceans? What knowledge do we have about the hazards that war wrecks, underwater munition (UXO) and chemicals such as TNT in the water may pose? Are we to be more concerned about this environmental problem?
In the North Sea Wrecks project, financed by the EU Interreg North Sea Region Program, the participants explored these questions and investigated the extent to which munitions in the sea pose a threat to the environment and the marine food chain. In this project, nine institutions from five countries have cooperated to gather more knowledge about that problem. After 4.5 years of work, they want to present their results so far and discuss with scientists, politicians and the interested public how the society wants to deal with this challenge in the future and demonstrate the risk assessment tool developed in the project.
