The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) has just released the latest edition of their Terra et Aqua magazine, introducing articles about muddled sediments, an eco-tie-in, Scheldt saver and a lake reviver.

Popular instruments in the field, optical backscatter instruments (OBS) are used to measure suspended sediments. But optical backscatter monitoring presents challenges in mixed sediment environments.

The sensitivity of OBS measurements in relation to grain size and the applicability of OBS measurements in mixed sediment environments is analysed.

To connect Scandinavia with Germany, the world’s longest immersed tunnel – Fehmarnbelt – will be built.

It will close a major gap in the European transport network while fostering the development of new nature and recreational landscapes.

The infrastructure will close a major gap in the European transport network, reduce the risk of shipping collisions, energy consumption and create a new region in Europe, while also fostering the development of new nature and recreational landscapes by Working with Nature concepts.

In this edition, IADC speaks with Patrick Meire – Chair of the Biology Department at University of Antwerp – who is dedicated to understanding the delicate and intertwined estuarine ecosystem of the Scheldt  estuary and turning research into action to combat threats from human activities and sea level rise.

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
