Abstract: Extensive research and study on the behaviour of dredged material after dumping in the sea has been conducted on the disposal grounds S1 S2 and Zb Oost located in the southern Bight of the North Sea. Investigations of recirculation on alternative disposal grounds are currently ongoing using radioactive tracertechniques for direct field measurements. The parameters that are relevant during the dumping operation are now better defined and well-known.
