Abstract
    A description is given of the location of the isohalines in the Delta area of the rivers Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt in the South-west of the Nether- lands, during the subsequent phases of the realisation of the Delta Plan. This Plan aims at the closure of most of the estuaries and sea-arms in the area. The situation previous to the building of the dams is shown at average, low and high river discharge (maps 2, 3 and 4). In maps 5, 6, 7 the situation of the present moment, after the construction of the secondary dam through the Grevelingen, is shown at the same discharges. In map 8 a prognosis is given of the course of the various isohalines after the closure of the mouth of the Haringvliet and the construction of the secondary dam through the Midden Hellegat and map 9 vizualizes the ultimate situation in the area, when the last dam -closing the Eastern Scheldt - is completed and the whole area has been flushed with river water from Rhine and Meuse.
