Report Title : The Use of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers to Measure Suspended Sediments (1999), 34 p.

Author : Dredging Research Ltd.


This report summarises the works of a study carried out to develop the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler as a tool to measure the concentration of suspended solids in the water column, and field surveys carried out. The findings of the field surveys have provided valuable data on Hong Kong's natural suspended solid regime and its seasonal variations, on the magnitude of the effect of dredging and disposal generally and, in particular, on the formation and decay of sediment plumes created by these activities.
