Quantification and modelling of the sedimentological and morphological dynamics of tidal marshes in the Scheldt estuary
01 / 2000 - 12 / 2003
[Context]: The role of marshes as (temporary?) storage zones of sediments along a gradient from freshwater to salt water is insufficiently understood. [Aim]: A better understanding of spatial and temporal variations in marsh sedimentation and erosion in the Scheldt estuary. [Methods]: Field measurement of suspended sediment, sedimentation rates, model development, airphoto interpretation.
