Abstract:
The department of Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel was founded in 1976. Since its establishment, this department specialises in numerical simulation techniques and computer applications which resulted in expertise in the use and development of hydrological modelling techniques. GIS and remote sensing are employed during the development, use and visualisation of these models and their results.

In the marine and estuarine fields, the department studies hydrodynamics, sediment transport, particle and sediment flocculation and aggregation, geo-acoustic characteristics, lithological and geomorphological evolution of the Scheldt Basin, the estuarine river floors and the coastal zone.

The department of Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering participates in research projects funded by Flemish, Belgian or European scientific programmes, or directly by the industry. These projects conduct research on, among others, aspects concerning the Sigmaplan, Moneos (integrated monitoring of the Scheldt estuary) and the long term vision of the Scheldt estuary and the coastal zone.
