Abstract:
Objective

Study of the consequences of human interventions in the Zeeschelde, on the environment. More specifically, the effects of the Sigmaplan, dredging activities and harbour expansion in the Zeeschelde are followed up.

The study project consists of 8 components and relates to the monitoring of the physical, chemical and biological parameters in the pelagic, intertidal and subtidal zone, as well as the oblique load of the Zeeschelde and its tributaries so the common database allows the development of an ecological model.

  1. The basic water quality in the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary.


  2. The C cycle of the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary .


  3. Sedimentology of the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary .


  4. The phytoplankton of the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary .


  5. Primary production in the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary .


  6. The zoöplankton of the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary .


  7. Evaluation and update of the OMES database, concerning the data of teh Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary .


  8. Study on the vegetation under tidal range in the Flemish part of the Scheldt estuary: 2 mesocosmos experiments and experimental area Lippenbroek .
