Abstract
    This paper presents an on-going study meant to improve our knowledge on the morphological development of estuaries for supporting estuarine management considering accessibility for navigation and the ecological value. We focus on the question whether a multi-channel system in the Westerschelde can be sustained under pressure of future deepening and maintenance. After reviewing the previous work on this subject the remaining questions are inventoried and further research for answering each question is proposed. The results of the proposed study will directly be applicable for developing better strategies for disposal dredged sediments, supporting decision making concerning sand mining and further deepening of navigation channels, and for monitoring the effects of human activities on the morphological development in the estuary.
