Abstract

    The Integrated Plan of the Upper Sea Scheldt describes a set of morphological adjustments designed to improve the quality of the system by 2050. The intended improvements encompass, among others, aspects of ecology, flood control, shipping and maintenance efforts. Within this context several alternative morphological adjustments have been proposed with different degrees of impact on the current morphology (the B-alternatives). To evaluate the expected impact of alternative morphological adjustments on hydrodynamics, sediment transport, water quality and pelagic ecosystem, habitat quality, fauna and flora, a series of modelling tools have been developed to predict the effects of the alternatives on each of these components. In addition, for each alternative different climate scenarios were designed to assess the effects under different magnitudes of future climatic changes.
