    This report gathers the experience gained in morphological modelling within the project "Sand dynamics in the Belgian coastal zone" carried out at Flanders Hydraulics. It aims to provide a single guideline document to help making decisions or understanding model results when setting up a morphological model. It reviews data and models available, draws attention to some focus points during the model setup and calibration, presents various input reduction techniques necessary for morphological modelling, special characteristics of inlet and embayment modelling, cross-shore profile applications, and various methods to implement structures in the model. Individual conclusions are summarized at the end of each chapter and in a more practical form at the end of the report.
