[Coral-List] coral sedimentation thresholds for dredge induced sedimentation

Dear Andrew,

I would look at Hubbard and Pocock, 1972 for a start.
There are so many articles that it would be difficult
to list them all here.

One thing about dredging -- it can reduce sediment
grain size to fineness smaller than that normally
produced by the wave/energy regime of a particular
reef ecosystem. This reduced grain size results in
particles that are more easily suspended -- if, in
addition, flow rates are reduced by the dredging, you
many end up with a silty mess.
