Temporal Patterns in Seawater Quality from Dredging in Tropical Environments

  title={Temporal Patterns in Seawater Quality from Dredging in Tropical Environments},

Maintenance and capital dredging represents a potential risk to tropical environments, especially in turbidity-sensitive environments such as coral reefs. There is little detailed, published observational time-series data that quantifies how dredging affects seawater quality conditions temporally and spatially. This information is needed to test realistic exposure scenarios to better understand the seawater-quality implications of dredging and ultimately to better predict and manage impacts of… CONTINUE READING
