Understanding Sediment Transport and Stability

SedTrend supplies the process to assess coastal ecosystems and reduce maintenance dredging of navigation channels.

Armed with crucial site-specific information on sediment transportand sediment stability, SedTrend works with program managers and planners for:

  • Optimum channel alignment to minimize infill rates
  • Determining the environmental impacts of dredging
  • Dredge material management and disposal
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Beneficial use considerations (of dredge material)
  • Numerical modeling
