Abstract : The purpose of this note is to present the conceptual groundwork for the Comprehensive Analysis of Migration Pathways (CAMP). The conceptualization process for CAMP is discussed and available techniques for implementing CAMP are examined. Disposal of contaminated dredged material in a confined disposal facility is used to benchmark conceptual development. Case studies that illustrate analysis of selected migration pathways are also described. (AN)
