Winner of the IADC Young Authors Award explains how human–made undersea ridges were used to attract marine life and boost the productivity of Japanese coastal fisheries.
The 2009 IADC Award for the Best Paper by a younger author evaluates how to prioritize channel maintenance dredging to ensure the safety and economic viability of waterborne transportation.
At the ports of Cartagena and Huelva, Spain dredged materials are affected by mining activities and require careful examination to aid decision making about disposal, as described by the IADC Award winner at the PIANC Conference in Portugal in May.
This study analysing changes in the bottom-topography at dredged material disposal sites and the interaction between disposed matter and the surrounding density currents received the IADC Award at the CEDA Dredging Days.
The IADC Award winning paper explains how widening and improving the severely eroded Emerald Beach shoreline required recognition of local interests in tourism and fishing, and cooperation between property owners, government, environmental groups and dredge contractors.
Predicting the transport of sediments in nearshore environments and their affect on coastal stability is essential. This paper, reporting on field experiments in this subject, won the IADC Young Authors Award at COPEDEC IV in Sri Lanka.
