Course Description

092-Dredging and the Environment - Part 3 (Beach Nourishment and Wetland Restoration)

This is a multi-part course examines dredging as it relates to various types of environmental projects. If you are not already familiar with the fundamentals of dredging please review Dredging and the Environment Part One, (available on the SunCam web site at: /continuing-education/100186.html), we suggest that you consider taking that course before launching into this course. There are a number of important subjects covered in Part 1 that will be implemented in this course, and without an basic understanding of the material covered in Part 1 you may not get the full benefit of this course. Major points that will be covered in this course are:

  • Beach nourishment projects.
  • Wetland habitat restoration projects (which would also apply to mitigation sites, nesting islands and the like).

This course is recommended as an introduction to the individual who is interested in the overall aspects of how Dredging can be used as an environmental restoration tool. The course material will be very practical in nature, it will cover many of the dos and don'ts — as well as what can and cannot be accomplished using today's available technology.

Course was quite informative; however the document needs to be re-proofed for errors.

Good review of beach nourishment and wetland restoration. However a couple of the test questions were a little confusing.

Like Parts 1 & 2, the course contains good useful information. Unlike those parts, the presentation was confusing at times and appears to have missed getting the intended points across. Overall, it is a good course.

Much technical information. A very interesting course. Again, in my opinion, a kinky test that can be improved. To many "all" or "none" of the above answers.

Not bad overall, and the examples are very helpful. But a couple of t he questions are somewhat misleading.
A portion of the review was omitted because it addressed specific test questions and answers.

My first search into this subject. As such, it was a fair challenge. Very interesting and informative as a primer. Well conceived and written. A few typo errors.

Could have been not so broad and more in-depth.
