The innovative sniffer sensor on board the Belgian coastguard aircraft is an important instrument for monitoring international maritime policy measures. The Belgian coastguard aircraft has been fighting against pollution of the marine environment by shipping since 1990. Since 2015, the fight against air pollution from ships has also been part of th...
The Working Group on the Effects of Extraction of Marine Sediments on the Marine Eco-system (WGEXT) met in Norwich, UK, 24–27 April 2017, chaired by Ad Stolk, the Nether-lands. Eighteen participants from ten ICES member countries attended the meeting. Contributions were provided by correspondence from Portugal, Estonia and Lithuania whose represent...
The amount of sediments to be dredged and disposed depends to a large part on the suspended particulate matter (SPM) concentration. Tidal, meteorological, climatological, and seasonal forcings have an influence on the horizontal and vertical distribution of the SPM in the water column and on the bed and control the inflow of fine-grained sediments...
The Working Group on the effects of extraction of marine sediments on the marine ecosystem (WGEXT) met in Reykjavik, 2–5 June 2014. Thirteen participants from eight ICES member countries attended the meeting. The objective of WGEXT is to provide a summary of data on marine sediment extrac-tion (ToR A1), marine resource and habitat mapping, changes...
The impact of continuous disposal of fine-grained sediments from maintenance dredging works on the suspended particulate matter concentration in a shallow nearshore turbidity maximum was investigated during dredging experiment (port of Zeebrugge, southern North Sea). Before, during and after the experiment monitoring of SPM concentration using OBS...
Review of knowledge for the period 1998 – 2004
Improve the international knowledge : - on the impacts of marine aggregate extraction on benthos, fish and habitats in different environmental conditions and under different extraction strategies (ICES Rec 11) - on trophic consequences of benthic depletion (ICES Rec 1) - on direct (physical disturbance) and indirect (through the food-web) impacts of m.a.e. on demersal fish communities (ICES Rec 9) - on the restoration process (ICES Rec 9)
