By Johan C. Winterwerp,C. Kranenburg

Cohesive sediment, or dust, is encountered in so much water our bodies in the course of the international. frequently dust is a important source, synonymous with fertile land, enriching the average setting and used as a big construction fabric. but dust additionally hinders navigation and as a result, dredging operations were performed considering the fact that precedent days to protect navigation. regrettably, many dust deposits are actually infected, endangering the eco-system and extending the prices of dredging operations. The delivery and destiny of dust within the atmosphere are nonetheless poorly understood and the necessity for easy study continues to be. this article includes the complaints of the INTERCOH-2000 convention on growth in cohesive sediment study. It used to be the 6th in a chain of meetings first and foremost all started via Professor Ashish Mehta in 1984 as a "Workshop on Cohesive Sediment Dynamics with distinctive connection with the procedures in Estuaries". in the course of those meetings the nature of the 1st workshop has regularly been maintained, that's, small scale and devoted to the actual and engineering features of cohesive sediments, with no parallel classes, yet with considerable time for discussions in the course of and after the displays, and by means of a booklet of lawsuits containing completely reviewed papers. INTERCOH-2000 was once built-in with the ultimate workshop of the COSINUS undertaking. This venture was once conducted as part of the eu MAST-3 programme, and just about all ecu cohesive sediment staff have been concerned. INTERCOH-2000 all in favour of the behaviour and modelling of focused benthic suspensions, i.e. high-concentrated near-bed suspensions of cohesive sediment. distinctive awareness used to be paid to: sediment - turbulence interplay; flocculation and settling pace; high-concentrated dust suspensions; techniques within the mattress - consolidation; methods at the mattress - erosion; box observations on dust dynamics; instrumentation; and numerical modelling.
