Abstract : This note summarizes responses to a recent survey of US Corps of Engineers (CE) sediment collection and analysis methods used in conjunction with planning dredging and disposal operations. The survey was designed to provide an overview of sediment collection and analysis programs and how these programs are conducted. Information gathered from the survey will be used to generate topics of discussion for a meeting to be held in June 1987 on sediment-analysis cost reduction. The survey and the meeting are part of a multi-year CE effort to reduce the overall costs associated with collecting and analyzing sediment samples. (MM)
