This webinar is the first in a series that are specific to nearshore placement and are intended to complement the RSM bi-monthly meetings. The goals of these meetings are to bring awareness to the topic, connect the tools and information from R&D to the field, and provide a venue for general discussion. We also anticipate better establishing and clarifying the terminology, results of past projects, and viability for future continued use of this alternative means of beneficial use of dredged material.
