Assessment and management of unexploded ordnance (UXO) risk in the marine environment (C754)

There is a minimum order of five copies for this title

This publication provides guidance to organisations involved with the planning, design, delivery, operation and maintenance, decommissioning or regulation of projects in the marine environment on the assessment and management of unexploded ordnance (UXO) risks. The guide focuses principally upon managing those risks that might be generated by UXO containing high explosives (HE), including abandoned explosive ordnance (AXO) such as sea-dumped munitions or abandoned ship or aircraft wrecks, but those munitions containing chemical warfare agents are outside of its main scope.

Although the guide is focused on the marine environment, the generic principles of the guidance and many of the geophysical survey techniques and risk mitigation approaches will also have applicability to other water bodies, such as very large inland lakes or reservoirs.
