    The Scheldt Estuary is a large-scale estuary in the south-west part of the Netherlands. The estuary is connected to the Scheldt river, which originates in the north-west of France. The total length of the Scheldt river including the estuary is about 350 km; the tide penetrates up to the city of Gent in Belgium (about 180 km from the mouth). The length of the estuary is about 60 km (up to Bath). Various analytical and numerical solution methods have been used and compared to measured data for a schematized estuary (exponentially decreasing width). The effects of water depth, channel dimensions and tidal storage on tidal range have been studied. Non-linear effects have also been discussed
