Abstract : This paper describes the functions, characteristics, and turbidity prevention or controlling effect of specialized dredges designed for bottom sediment dredging and developed for exclusive practical use. In bottom sediment dredging, the prevention or controlling of turbidity arising from the dredging operation is an important problem. When compared with cutter suction dredging, the specialized dredges can significantly reduce the potential generation of turbidity.
