In order to assess the effects on the ecosystem of interventions (nature development, engineered interventions...) in the framework of the Sigma, an existing model of the Westerschelde (MOSES) will be extended to the Zeesschelde (upto Ghent). Purpose of this research is to get a policy supporting instrument that explicitly takes uncertainty in the knowledge into account.
