Environmental disturbances of concern to marine mining research by Battelle Memorial Institute. Download PDF EPUB FB2

Some of the environmental issues related to coal mining are like those related to mining in general, whereas others are specific to coal mining. The environmental impacts and human health problems caused by coal have long been a cause for concern, probably since its first use as a fuel in China (Suárez-Ruiz and Crelling, ).

Environmental concerns may be related to local or global issues. Examples of global issues are GHG emissions or stratospheric ozone depletion, whereas local environmental disturbances may include pollution of air, soil, and water. Loss of biodiversity is between these two categories (i.e., global and local).

Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes.

These processes also have an impact on the atmosphere from the emissions of. Deep‐sea mining: potential environmental, legal, economic, and societal implications ‐ an interdisciplinary research.

The focus of environmental research is to increase knowledge of the natural variability of the environment, understand the consequences of marine mining, monitor changes over time and minimise impacts.

The global marine mining industry is more advanced, and is supported by a growing body of research investigating likely environmental impacts and mitigation strategies (Halfar & FujitaCollins et al. On local scales, impacts are likely to be associated with sea-floor modification (dredging and mineral extraction).

Marine Environmental Research publishes original research papers on chemical, physical, and biological interactions in the oceans and coastal waters.

IMPACT FACTOR. Deep sea mining is a mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents at 1, to 3, metres (4, to 12, ft) below the ocean’s surface.

The vents create globular or massive sulfide deposits, which contain valuable metals such as silver, gold.

Both the extraction of minerals from the seabed and disposal of mining waste products into the deep sea from either land-based or seabed mining are of growing concern due to the disturbances that can be caused to both littoral and deep-sea benthic ecosystems (e.g., Lee and Correa, ; Hughes et al., ; Levin et al., ).Cited by: 6.

Of concern are the endemic organisms to the vents that live on or in the seabed sediment adjacent to vents, which may be destroyed by the mining process.

Mining refers to the extraction of metals and minerals from the Earth. The most common types of mining include: coal mining, gold mining, uranium mining, and silver mining.

The main emphasis is on academic research that has been performed on mining-related environmental issues during the last decades.

Both basic research and applied research has been performed, and a similar combination of basic / applied research should be the goal also for future research.

Although marine pollution has a long history, significant international laws to counter it were not enacted until the twentieth century.
