Response of tidal rivers to deepening and narrowing
Publication type | rapport Deltares
This report describes the results of the Task M research on the integrity of the Scheldt fairways, with focus on the risks of changes in the large-scale behavior of fine sediments (regime shift) in the Upper Sea Scheldt (Boven Zeeschelde). This work is (partly) based on a comparison with other estuaries. The relevant management question for this part of the study reads: How can the balance of fine
sediment in the turbidity maximum in the Scheldt estuary be controlled and affected by human interventions, decreasing the supply of fine sediments in zones characterized by too high siltation rates in relation to nautical and/or ecological aspects, or increasing the supply to zones with too little fine sediments in relation to ecological aspects.
