Knauss legislative fellowships in Congress help build careers — and they're fun and educational. See our video and fact sheet for details.
The goal of this project is to develop and test a new approach to examine the degree to which methods used for mitigation and remediation of wetland and estuarine sediments reduce the transfer of contaminants to the environment. We will compare and contrast three proposed mitigation strategies: capping, phytoremediation, and marsh restoration using contaminated sediments.
