NCK symposium Hydro-morphodynamic research in the Western Scheldt estuary

Date: 29 October 2018
Location: Delft

The Scheldt estuary is a well-studied area. Both in Flanders and the Netherlands national institutes, universities and consultants contribute. The aim of this NCK theme day is to share and deepen our knowledge on the hydrodynamics and morphodynamics of the channels and intertidal areas, especially in the Western Scheldt. We discuss recent findings of applied and fundamental research, with the aim to give recommendations on the way forward in estuarine research and management. This includes the importance of the channel-shoal interaction on the long term evolution of the estuary. The set-up of the day will be energetic, with multiple sessions consisting of a variety of short presentations. There is plenty of room for discussion.
