Prof/Dr Wirtz:

Suggest that you contact the wide range of papers and authorities who have work with the effects of 1) oil spills, 2) DUMPING OF CONTAMINATED DREDGEd
MATERIALS AND SEDIMENTS, AND MINING OF MARINE SANDS AND GRAVELS.

Cleanup of such materials are documented.

P.s. do you have any info regarding the Brachyuran, Pinnotheridae ("pea Crabs)
in the waters around Madeira?

                        Dear colleagues,

                        after severe storms and mudslides at Madeira Island, the bottom of the (formerly rocky) marine National Park of Garajau is covered with a layer of mud several cm high. We are contemplating to try to clean at least some of the highest rocky areas so that new life may settle there.
                        Does anybody know a case where something similar has been attempted and/or the contact address of an expert who might advise us ??

                        Thank you for your help,
                        Peter
