Conference on

Minimizing Risks for the Environment in Marine Ammunition Removal in the Baltic and North Sea (MIREMAR) - 16th to 18th November 2010



Large quantities of conventional ammunition (explosives) and chemical warfare have been deployed or dumped into Baltic and North Seas during and after World Wars I and II. It is still unclear what risks they pose to humans and the environment. The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the situation and actual developments in treatment of underwater unexploded ordnance. Identification of best practice and best available technique is a central objective of the conference. Workshops on the third day may help to establish a network of actors in order to initiate research, development or trials of new technologies.

Order of Events

After theme sessions on Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th November (e.g., detection, impact on biota, conventional treatment by blasting, recovery and removal of conventional ammunition, chemical warfare, political dimension) practical demonstrations, workshops and an excursion will be offered on Thursday 18th November 2010.


NeumÃnster is situated 30 km south of Kiel and 70 km north of Hamburg. The conference will be held in the âStadthalleâ, Kleinflecken 1, 24534 NeumÃnster. For practical demonstrations there will be space outside the conference building. Exhibition space in the foyer will be offered to our sponsors.
