Dredge Monitoring

The global trends of increasing awareness of environmental impacts from human endeavors and resource operations in remote locations are colliding in dredge activities. This collision is driving innovation in dredge-monitoring technology, resulting in higher quality data arriving at decision makers’ desktops in near real time. Going forward, high-quality data sets from dredge-monitoring operations will be important enhancements to ocean and coastal observing systems. Environmental Monitoring of Dredging Operations, published in Ocean News & Technology, provides information on Sea-Bird Scientific solutions.
