For this second edition of the highly successful Dredging: A Handbook for Engineers, Nick Bray and his co-authors have fully updated and expanded the book which covers all aspects of modern dredging including operating methods, outputs, costs, contracts and the impact on the environment. Planning and implementing dredging projects, including pre-contract works, is also well covered. The book is generously illustrated with line drawings, photographs and tables, and a useful bibliography appears at the end of each chapter. This definitive handbook will prove invaluable to engineers and managers alike, both as an initial introduction to this specialised topic and as a reference for years to come.
