Habitat surface (ha) in the Scheldt estuary [Habitat oppervlakte (ha) in het Schelde-estuarium]
Contact: Maris, Tom

Description
Major changes in the morphology of the estuary occurred during the last centuries. Since the early middle ages tidal marshes were reclaimed by embankment to create agricultural land, since the middle of the 20th century for industrial and urban developments. The last century still about 16% of total surface was lost.
