Abstract
    For the construction of a morphodynamic model of the Western Scheldt a comparison is made between the resulting sediment transport using a 2Dh hydronamic and a 3D hydrodynamic model. For the area and subject of interest the secondary currents are of major importance, for it determines up to 40% of the siltation in the shipping channel. The distinction of the secondary currents in a longitudinal and transversal direction, with respect to the depth averaged current, is made in order to calculate the contribution to the resulting sediment transport. It is shown that on different locations different driving mechanisms are dominant.
