Abstract
    The admittance policy of deep draught vessels at the harbours of Rotterdam and along the Westerschelde use a probabilistic calculation method to take advantage of the tide. Astronomical and meteorological effects, waves and different vessel types are taken into account. Using this new technique, instead of the previously implemented deterministic method, the accessibility of the harbours and the safety during the channel transit has been increased, without additional dredging costs.
