   schema:reviewBody ""Expanding a port, deepening a navigation channel or creating new land for development introduces changes to our physical, social, economic and political environment. Changes may result from events during the construction process or relate to the nature of the completed structure. Changes can be positive or negative, short-term or long-term. They may affect the immediate vicinity of the project or a larger geographical area. Predicting and assessing all possible effects of a planned dredging activity in a scientifically-sound and reliable manner is essential. Only in this way can appropriate control measures be taken to avoid or mitigate unwelcome impacts." ""Environmental Aspects of Dredging" provides guidance for a thorough holistic environmental evaluation process and for the design and implementation of necessary environmental control measures. The book is of particular interest to engineers, government agencies and port authorities, as well as civil engineering consultants and contractors involved in planning and designing dredging, maritime infrastructure and fluvial projects."--Jacket." ;
