Morphological modelling of the Western Scheldt: validation of DELFT3D
Kuijper, C.; Steijn, R.C.; Roelvink, D.; van der Kaaij, T.; Olijslagers, P. (2004). Morphological modelling of the Western Scheldt: validation of DELFT3D. Delft Hydraulics/Waterbouwkundig Laboratorium: Delft. 115 pp.
Morphological changes of the Scheldt estuary are extensively monitored by the Dutch and Belgian authorities. To predict effects of long-term natural changes (sea level rise) and the consequences of various human interventions, such as dredging/dumping/sand mining and deepening of the navigation channel, there is an urgent need for adequate and reliable tools in these matters. The present report describes the results of the calibration and verification of the DEFLT3D morphological model for the Western Scheldt on the short term (years) as well as on the mid term (decades).
