Profiles: Theodo-lite and level-meter
Sedimentation/erosion: Sedimentation-erosion plots
A sedimentation-erosion plot exists out of 3 cores that are fixed into the mudflat. The 1,5 m long cores are set up in a triangular position, 1500 mm h.o.h. (length is 1500mm). The cores form a horizontal reference plane of which the reference height TAW is known. When strong sedimentation or erosion has taken place, the cores are prolonged or shortened. Core 1 and core 2 are connected by means of a measurement row, so the distance to the bottom can be measured each 20 cm. After that core 2 an

Vegetation: Permanent squares (PQ)
Along the river, spread over the different vegetation types, a large number of permanent squares are marked.

Vegetation: Vegetation mapping
Through aerial photographs and field observations.
