Sediment as a dynamic natural resource

11th International SedNet Conference 3-5 April 2019, Dubrovnik, Croatia : Sediment as a dynamic natural resource from catchment to open seafrom catchment to open sea

Sediments found in upland streams, industrialised waterways, busy coastal zones and offshore waters are characterized by a wide variety of sediment properties present in dynamic and less dynamic areas. These areas are inherently interlinked as sediment is transported from catchment to the open sea. The natural flow of sediment from mountainous regions to the ocean is strongly impacted by anthropogenic activities along this journey in terms of both the quantity that is transported and the quality of transporting waters.

At the SedNet 2019 conference will offer a series of sessions aiming to explore these challenges and proposed solutions. This includes how policies and plans are developed for the range of often interlinked issues experienced along the journey from upland areas to the deeper waters such as how sediment quality should be assessed, sediment as an ecosystem service and how excess sediment can be used beneficially.
