Nuclear Techniques to assess marine and coastal pollution in Sri Lanka

In Sri Lanka, coastal and estuarine pollution has been identified as one of the potential threats to human health and economic stability of its inhabitants. Therefore Government has taken several steps to mitigate marine pollution from land base activities as well as sea based activities. As one of the major step, Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA) was established under the Marine Pollution prevention Act no 35 of 2008. MEPA has a mandate to take necessary action for prevention reduction and control of marine pollution in Sri Lankan waters.
