The second day of the meeting was dedicated to the field study in order to draw attention of different stakeholder groups on the extreme sensitivity of south-eastern Baltic region, which suffers from the lack of sediments, participating in natural exchange, especially in the coastal zones. Correct location of the new offshore dumping areas could contribute to the improvement of sediment balance in the coastal areas and reduce the rates of coastal erosion.
