Underwater Sound in Relation to Dredging Workshop Announced

The World Organisation of Dredging Associations (WODA) and Central Dredging Association (CEDA) announce that the WODA workshop on underwater sound in relation to dredging, will be held on Thursday 26 March 2015, in Paris, France.

In June 2013 WODA published a Technical Guidance on Underwater Sound in Relation to Dredging. It was compiled by the WODA Expert Group on Underwater Sound, under the remit of the WODA Environmental Commission, and reviewed by experts in the field. This workshop will bring the Technical Guidance “to life”, CEDA said in a press release.

Workshop Chair, Dr Frank Thomsen, said: “The workshop sessions will be run by leading experts from around the world. They will share the latest knowledge and provide up-to-date guidance on how to assess the effects of underwater sound from dredging operations on marine life. With their practical experience speakers will place the Technical Guidance firmly into context for delegates.

“Participants can expect to learn about underwater sound in general, the sound levels of various dredging activities in particular, and the assessment and management of dredging noise impact. We think this will be an important event for many stakeholders in the dredging community including scientists, regulators and policy-makers.”

The workshop is organised by CEDA, on behalf of WODA, and supported by Cerema (Center for expertise and engineering on risks, urban and country planning, environment and mobility) and French Maritime Cluster (CMF).
