The purpose of these introductory remarks is to provide the Japanese Delegation with a brief overview of significant accomplishments that have occurred in the US Program since the last meeting some two years ago. These remarks will also represent what is seen as some of the major emerging issues and US Research directions and information needs in the field of contaminated bottom sediments management.
