Description
Bottom samples taken in the Zeeschelde and Westerschelde were analysed for its chemical quality and granulometric characteristics. more

Bottom samples are taken in the Zeeschelde and Westerschelde for:
  • Determination of the chemical quality of dredge spoil;
  • Assessment of the chemical quality of the water bottom in reference to the benthic community;
  • Determination of the granulometric characteristics and sediment type.
