Amsterdam Land Reclamation Spill Monitoring2018-09-23
God created the World but the Dutch created Holland, or so they say. Land reclamation is still ongoing, and recently a project was started to create a new neighborhood in Amsterdam, in IJmeer, using sand dredged from navigation channels. Last Friday Dr. Ulf Erlingsson visited the site to view how the SediMeter™ SM4 was being used to detect any elevated turbidity and sedimentation outside of the silt screen that is installed to protect the surrounding environment. This video is a summary of the day.
In all 4 stations are in use, 3 inside the protected area, and 1 control station well outside the zone.
