Submarine Cable Embedment: Integrating Suspended Sediment Modeling & Monitoring into the Regulatory Permit Process

1/11/2013 - Underwater cables are required for many energy infrastructure projects such as offshore wind farms, hydrokinetic projects, and point-to-point electric transmission projects. However, these projects introduce suspended sediment into the water column, which can have short-term effects on water quality and aquatic biota if not properly understood and managed. Project-specific data and accurate assessments are key to a successful installation.
