>> A scientific community

Estuaries are heterogenous and dynamic systems that contain specific life communities. Too often however, they suffer from human impact. The complexity of estuarine systems, in particular the Scheldt estuary, demands a multidisciplinary research approach.

This is the reason why in 2002 a scientific research community was founded, financed by the Fund for scientific research - Flanders. The aim of this scientific community is to improve integration of estuarine research, hereby supported by international scientific feedback concerning research on the Seine estuary.  Read more
