Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Abstract: The paper examines the potential of using sediment dredged from the River Clyde estuary as a topsoil in land renewal. It presents results, to date (1986), of a study sponsored by the Scottish Development Agency and Clyde Port Authority into the physical characteristics of the Clyde sediments, their quantity and quality and a comparison to naturally occuring top soil. The economic implications of disposing of dredged material are also considered.
