Abstract

The concentration of suspended material in the immediate vicinity of an operating sand suction dredge in the Oresund was 3-5000mg/l. Concentrations > 100 mg/l were restricted to a downstream distance of .apprx. 150m and ambient levels were reached within .apprx. 1 km of the dredge. The natural variation in the concentration of suspended material was between 0-6 mg/l during 3/4 yr. Deleterious effects to flora and fauna of concentrations > 100 mg/l were of limited interest, due to the restricted area impacted by high concentration. Significant, negative effects of concentrations <100 mg/l were not demonstrated.
