Summary
Abstract: The Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) has identified the Thala Valley Tip near Casey Station as a high priority site for remediation. However there are difficulties with regards to contaminant dispersal by melt-water during extraction of wastes and contaminated sediments. Characterisation of contaminants and other site-specific conditions is crucial when designing appropriate water treatment ... View entire text
