Abstract
    Studies of the navigability. - In the "divagant" region, sandy sills are formed, which obstruct the navigation ; dredging permits the establishment of a navigation channel. Nevertheless, this navigation channel bas been subject to different modifications since the beginning of the century. The last one has taken place in april 1986. Nowadays, one is trying to understand better the mechanism of sanding up, knowing that the transport of sand is due to the erosive force of the water during the swelling. During these last 20 years, not only the studies done on scale mode!, but also the fact-finding explorations and the training courses of personnel in situ allow for a more accurate prediction of the future evolutions and so increase the security of the navigation.
