Abstract
    Extensive dredging in the Schelde Estuary in the last 40 years has influenced the morphology in such a way that important ecological habitats have reduced in size. A new dredging program is about to be initiated and the authorities are in search of a way to optimize the dredging activities in order to reduce the negative effects of dredging. As the dredging activities mainly take place on the sills, the morphodynamic behaviour of the sills is studied. As a first step extensive measurements of the currents, the sediment transport and the morphological development were done in order to investigate the morphodynamic processes.
