The fourth SCOPAC workshop in the series "AAndy’s Workshops: A Problem Shared" was held at the National Oceanography Centre on 1st February 2013. The theme was focused on the practicalities and costs of sediment renourishment.

Approximately 60 delegates - coastal engineers, scientists, consultants and contractors - attended the workshop, which commenced with Professor Andy Bradbury providing background information on the basic principles of sediment renourishment.

Sediment Renourishment of Beaches, February 2013

The morning consisted of two talks from contractors, on identifying and extracting sediment sources aswell as the practicalities of deploying the sediment onto the beaches.

The remainder of the workshop centred round coastal engineers sharing their experiences of sediment renourishment works from selected cases studies across the SCOPAC region.

The workshop came to a close with a question and answers session, whereby delegates submitted a question together with a photo of a sediment renourishment event they wanted to discuss.
