The Water Framework Directive (WFD) obliges the EU member states to achieve good status of all water bodies (rivers, lakes, transitional and coastal waters) by 2015. In the management plan for the implementation of the WFD (and Natura 2000) in the Netherlands, the context, perspectives, targets and measures for each designated water body (also including the Eems-Dollard) have been laid out. The WFD obliges to improve our knowledge on the mud dynamics in the Ems-Dollard, and before 2015 the reasons for the apparent increase in turbidity must be established. Therefore Rijkswaterstaat Waterdienst has initiated the project "Onderzoek slibhuishuiding Eems-Dollard". The first phase of this project aims to setup a modelling and monitoring plan, supported by stakeholders and scientific experts. This phase consists of (a) identification of the current system knowledge and knowledge gaps related to KRW, water turbidity and primary production, (b) a modelling and monitoring plan, and (c) workshops with specialists and stakeholders. This report is the modeling and monitoring plan, following from the literature review (part a), described in an accompanying report.
