Abstract:
Based on available datasets, mathematical models of ecosystemfunctioning of the Westerschelde are designed and scaled; if insufficient information is available for estimation of the model parametersettings, extra data will be collected; especially measurements of stable isotope ratio's will be used. The models allow us to calculate the rates of biogeochemical processes and other variables that are difficult to measure.
