Reducing port sedimentation: Why careful planning of port layouts is important on sandy coasts

Improved long-term predictions of the bathymetry in ports now possible due to new innovative modelling technology.

For many ports and harbours, maintenance dredging is the biggest single expenditure in their goal to ensure clear and safe navigation.
Along sandy coasts, sediment is transported along the shoreline by the impact of waves, tide and currents, and potentially accumulates in port areas.
