The Breaching Process

Breaching is the occurrence of continues and/or local instabilities on a sandy slope causing a density flow running downwards from the slope.

When dredging sand with a plain suction dredger this situation is purposely generated. This type of dredger, consisting in its most simple appearance of a pontoon, a suction tube, a dredge pump and a discharge pipeline, picks up the density current running from the slope.
