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. Generation of a surface turbidity plume from the overflow of a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger is investigated by a process-based, detailed Computational Fluid Dynamics model.
