long-term morphological response to sea level rise and different sediment strategies in the Western Scheldt estuary (The Netherlands)
M. van der Wegen
Publication type | rapport Deltares
The objective of this study is to gain insight into the relative impact of (extreme) sea level rise (SLR) and different sediment strategies, i.e. dredging and dumping and beach nourishments, on the hydro- and morphodynamic behaviour of the Western Scheldt estuary (The Netherlands) till the end of the 21st century. For this, a process-based numerical morphodynamic model (DElft3D version 4) is applied that accounts for continuously changing hydrodynamic boundary conditions associated with SLR as well as for different dredging and dumping strategies and beach nourishments.
