Abstract : The objective of a geotechnical site investigation for a dredging project is to obtain the most complete and accurate estimate of the location, description, and dredgeability properties of the sediments to be dredged that is possible within the limits of available time and money and of practicality. This technical note offers guidance in the planning of a dredging site investigation and in the methods typically used for underwater geotechnical investigations. This guidance was developed as part of the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station's (WES) Dredging Research Program. (MM)
