Within this report an analysis of both tidal and topo-bathymetric characteristics in the Lower Sea Scheldt since 1900 has been performed. The historical evolution of tidal parameters (high and low water levels, tidal range, duration of rising and falling, celerity of tidal wave) and topo-bathymetric parameters (hypsometric curves, channel volumes, volumes above intertidal areas) was investigated. For these tidal and topo-bathymetric characteristics several relationships were analysed. Long term evolutions show both similar as opposing trends for the investigated geographic sections (i.e. parts of the estuary between water level stations) in the Lower Sea Scheldt.
