Cross-border Dissemination Event II
Port development is vital for economic development and transport. However, maintaining the parameters of waterways and basins is associated with the deepening and this creates certain problems, the most important is development of mined ore (sediment). Annually there is produced several million cubic meters of sediment, much of which is deposited on a specially selected locations (Dumping Sites) in the Baltic Sea area. This action is economically beneficial, but carried out in an irregular manner can be a real threat to the marine environment.
Maritime Institute in Gdansk as the ECODUMP project partner invites to the conference: Management of dredged material and offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic Region” Cross-border Dissemination Event II which will take place in Gdańsk, Poland on 11.12.2013.
During the conference preliminary results of the ECODUMP project (Application of ecosystem principles for the location and management of offshore dumping sites in SE Baltic region), will be presented. The project principal objective is to develop comprehensive guidelines for ecosystem methodology to choose where to deposit sediments in the Sea and management of offshore dumping sites in the south-eastern region of the Baltic Sea in the context of the risks reduction to the marine environment and improvement the quality use of marine resources.
