Abstract : This technical note describes the operational and data analysis procedures for deep-water monitoring of dredged material disposal operations using the PLUme Measurement System (PLUMES). The development plans for PLUMES and some preliminary field results are described in Dredging Research Technical Notes DRP-1-O6 (Kraus and Thevenot 1992). Another of the Dredging Research Technical Notes (DRP-1-16, Tubman 1994) describes the system that was developed, discusses its commercial availability, and examines the theoretical relationship between PLUMES measurements and suspended sediment concentrations.
