Abstract : This report describes a preliminary environmental analysis of selected shipboard solid waste discharges. It is part of the Navy's effort to determine whether their current solid waste discharge plan is environmentally sound. The potential impact/nonimpact of solid waste discharges from Navy ships is discussed, and the preliminary theoretical and experimental findings for the environmental analysis of U,S. Shipboard Solid Waste Discharges (SSWD) is presented. This study completes the physical and chemical characterization of the waste streams. Follow-on work lies under the areas of degradation, biological interaction, modeling, field work, analysis, and reporting.
