Abstract
    As a flood control area with controlled reduced tide (FCA-CRT), Bergenmeersen is expected to make a significant contribution to natural quality in the Scheldt estuary. Via a sophisticated sluice construction with combined inlets and outlets above each other, a reduced tide is introduced into the polder, while retaining the spring/neap tide variation. The purpose: a functional mud flat and marsh ecosystem. A monitoring programme was developed to examine whether these nature objectives are actually being achieved and to make adjustments where necessary.
