Abstract : The stated objectives of the Long-Term Effects of Dredging Operations (LEDO) Program are to provide new or improved state-of-the-art technology for predicting long-term environmental impacts of dredging operations and to improve or develop methods for minimizing any adverse impacts associated with dredged material disposal. The program presently consists of five separate but highly integrated work units in two general work areas: effects of aquatic disposal and effects of upland disposal. This paper presents the status of the program in the present form and its aims in the near future.
