Boskalis' dredging and subsidiary groups have been working on environmentally beneficial projects. The purpose of the study was to investigate the recycling of sandy sedimentary material with the purpose of producing a secondary building material (Royal Boskalis, 1996). A summary evaluation was presented of the distribution and qualitative ranking of the Plio-Pleistocene results obtained to date from Deep Sea magnetostratigraphic Drilling Project and Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) piston cored sites. The distribution of the high-quality record correlated well with both areas of terrigenous sediment input and regions of moderate biological productivity (Clement et al, 1996). A

Because the experimentally determined dispersion coefficients appeared to be scale dependent up to a distance of approximatley 20 to 30 times the size of the repeated heterogeneity group (hydraulic unit), it was concluded that a medium with periodic heterogeneity likely may be characterized
