A wide-ranging review which discusses developments in dredging technology and their application in the field. It covers a history of dredging; dredging and siltation--cause and effect; the behaviour of the dredged area of Walney Channel; the investigation of spoil movement in the Firth of Forth using radioactive tracers; the use of tracers to determine infill rates in projected dredged channels; the development of The River Tees--deepening, widening, and extension of the navigable channel; recent research developments in hydraulic dredging; reclamation dredging and instrumentation; towards automation in inshore hydrographic surveying.
