MEMs Field Deployment

The objective of the study is to develop a working prototype for the real-time, in-situ quantification of metals concentrations in marine sediments. Initially, the field version will be a battery powered, hand held probe that can be pushed into the sediment in relatively shallow areas to determine the accuracy, resolution, detection limits, and repeatability of measurements and will include ground truthing with sediment samples that will be collected and analyzed using standard laboratory methods for comparison. It is expected that the developed product could be used by the client or other dredge material managers to assess the sediment quality within their managed waterways. It is anticipated that the technology could be present to various dredge material management organizations such as the NYNJ Port Authority, the USACE, USEPA Region 2, as well as state agencies and various engineering firms.
