The RESTWES study is being conducted by a team of institutes including RWS-RIKZ,WL|Delft Hydraulics, IvM, RWS-MD, RWS-DZ and KNMI. This report describes the workthat has been conducted by WL|Delft Hydraulics and IvM during on the main component ofRESTWES corresponding to i.e. analysis of SPM in the water phase of the Western Scheldtthrough an integration of 3 components information sources, namely:· In-situ data· Remote sensing· Water quality modellingIn Chapters 2-4, the main activities and results for each of these components are presented.In Chapter 5, comparison of results from the different information sources is made. InChapter 6, the results of model predictions for a T1 scenario are given. In Chapter 7,conclusions of the present study and recommendations for the T1 monitoring are given.Appendix A and B give details of the water quality model set-up and calibration using thecost function.The development of algorithms for processing remote sensing images, and preparation ofSPM maps from remote sensing are described in detail in Peters et al., 1999. The use ofremote sensing for classification of tidal flats and for assessing the potential ecologicalimpacts of the tunnel material dumping are presented in Baptist and Peters, 1999.These studies have all been financed by the BCRS with support from the ProgrammabureauMeetstrategie 2000+.
