Sediments reflect the general quality of the marine environment. Scientists in the ICES community have, for many years, been attempting to gain international agreement on how sediments can be used to show spatial or temporal variations. There have been many debates about how to use sediments, but only in the last year has an element of agreement been achieved. This paper describes the objectives of such monitoring and how agreement has been reached.
