Abstract
    There are numerous reasons to measure sediment concentrations in the water column. It can be because a harbour is located at a tidal river, where sediment transport and deposition are major factors for maintenance of channels and harbours. Or it can be the local authorities that demand a strict control of the environment during dredge operations. The first reason requires constant monitoring of the suspended sediment concentration (SSC), at least over tidal periods. For the latter one you must be able to intervene in case of unacceptable disturbances to the surrounding environment occur. For this reasons the monitoring results must be available in real time. This paper presents a case study in which the sediment behaviour in the river Weser is monitored during a tidal period.
