In view of these deficiencies, this book, constructed largely from experience of actual dredging projects, is offered as a contribution to the subject. The collection of data was commenced before 1914 over a period of several years when the writer's services were joined with the survey and dredging of Plymouth Sound. Later, the notes were revived, and when at the Port of London associated with a dredging scheme measured by a channel improvement of 56 million cubic yards – the data were amplified. More recently on representations that the notes would be of value to the young hydrographic engineer a decision to publish was made.” (p. 1).
