PUB C505 Regional seabed sediment studies and assessment of marine aggregate dredging
Investigates the character, origins, distribution and movements of seabed sediments, and the potential effects, particularly on the coastline, of dredging sand and gravel from the seabed. Considers a structured approach to regional studies of sediment mobility over the seabed, identifying the objectives, benefits, scope and methods that can be used, and guidelines for studies needed to assess the impacts on the coastline of proposed dredging operations.
