Dredging activities can have significant effects on the marine environment. These effects can occur in numerous ways including direct habitat loss, changes to coastal processes, changes in sediment composition, increases in suspended sediment and the release of contaminants. It is therefore essential to identify appropriate management measures to ensure the protection of the marine environment.

This seminar discusses the latest approaches and technologies to manage the effects of dredging activities, using actual case studies from around the world.
