National Regional Sediment Management Program

Sediment Budget Workshop (SBAS)
13 Feb 2018

Detroit District Offices

| U.S. Army Corps of Engineers | Engineer Research and Development Center | Warning |

Sediment budgets provide an understanding of the regions sediment sources, project needs, processes, data gaps, engineering actions, and ecological considerations. Data, such as elevation data from profiles or lidar, along with sediment characteristics, and dredging and placement information, are used to understand sediment pathways and develop sediment budgets for a region. The purpose of the training was to provide knowledge of Sediment Budgets and the Sediment Budget Analysis System (SBAS) that will be implemented in ongoing and upcoming projects around the Great Lakes for the Coastal Resiliency Study.
