During the past decade, the discipline of dredging has been challenged in the areas of economics, the environment, and management of dredging projects. Dredging has kept pace with its challenges through research, innovative planning, development of new equipment, and sensitivity to environmental issues. This proceedings, Dredging '94, brings together papers that discuss these new ideas and technologies. Originally presented at the Second International Conference and Exhibition on Dredging and Dredged Material Placement held in Orlando, Florida in November, 1994, these papers explore a wide variety of topics. Some of these are: 1) Dredging research programs; 2) deep ocean disposal of dredged material; 3) development and direction of environmental regulations; 4) technology transfer and public awareness in dredging; 5) fate of dredged material; 6) geotechnical aspects of dredging; 7) surveying and positioning; 8) evaluation and selection of placement alternatives; 9) remediation of contaminated sediments; 10) beneficial uses of dredged material; 11) long-term planning for dredged material placement; 12) trends in dredging equipment; 13) dredging automation and monitoring; 14) Canadian experience with contaminated sediments; 15) economics of dredging projects. Those interested in dredging will find this proceedings a useful collection of information on a variety of dredging themes.
