Abstract

The role of dredging operations and environmental research (DOER) programs for determination of environmental windows, was discussed. These programs help in the development of models to simulate dredging processes, technologies for characterization of dredging induced perturbations and development of databases that provide access to data. The goal of these development efforts is provision of a complete 'toolbox' for use by biological resource and dredging project managers, whereby environmental windows can be evaluated in terms of need and effectiveness. These tools can predict the effects of various dredging project secenarios, such that if windows are justified, their dates can be determined to provide optimal resource protection.
