Abstract

In this report the different dredging techniques commonly applied in the UK are described, along with the associated processes by which resuspension of bed material can occur. The techniques available for measuring the resuspension of bed material are briefly described along with some comment upon monitoring strategies. A review of previously reported quantification of the increases of suspended sediment concentrations associated with dredging activity is provided.
