Description
In the context of the Long Term Vision of the Scheldt estuary (LTV), the Flemish and Dutch governments have a working group on research and monitoring of the Scheldt estuary. The Working Group O & M is a permanent working group of the Flemish-Dutch Scheldt Commission (VNSC) which have an agreement ​​on a long-term monitoring and research program to support the cross-border cooperation in policy and management in the Scheldt estuary: MONEOS. Within MONEOS, existing monitoring campaigns from NL and B are refined and merged as new measurement campaigns. The data is divided in 6 themes. The estuary is known for a large amount of habitats. By means of different maps (habitat, vegetation, geomorphology,...) , this variation is now known.
