Can surface turbidity plume generation near a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger be predicted?

A surface plume from overflow can stay suspended for long periods and distances, resulting in negative environmental impact through increased turbidity and sedimentation.

Monitoring of settling and consolidation of mud after water injection dredging in the Calandkanaal

As regular maintenance and relocation of sediment deposits are highly expensive, Port authorities seek more efficient solutions for reducing the costs and CO2 emissions of maintenance dredging. One solution, water injection dredging (WID), is carried out for maintaining the sediment deposits which predominantly consist of clay and silt. WID has been proven to be a cheaper solution by leaving the sediment in place, eliminating substantial costs for relocation of the dredged sediment.
