Abstract
    From 1972 onwards, sediment samples have been collected at locations at the borders of the tidal reaches of the river Scheldt and on the Upper Scheldt. These reaches are located at different tributaries, such as the Zenne, Kleine Nete, Grote Nete, Dijle and Dender. By combining these sediment data with the discharge data at the same locations, sediment fluxes entering the Sea Scheldt and passing the measurements location 'Schelle' can be calculated.

    Three different calculation methods to obtain these sediment fluxes are compared and a preliminary estimation of the associated uncertainties is presented.
