Abstract
    In 2001, an expert team appointed by the Antwerp Port Authority proposed a new strategy for disposing dredged material, as part of a strategy for managing the morphology of the Western Scheldt estuary. Extensive research carried out by Flanders Hydraulics Research - including physical scale-modelling, numerical simulations and field measurements - indicated that the proposed strategy would likely be successful. The final step to investigate the feasibility was the execution of a full-scale in situ test in view of modifying the shape of the ‘Walsoorden’ shoal. This paper describes the morphological monitoring program in detail. As far as known, the extreme project specifications were never realised before.
