Abstract
    The concept of combining Flood Control Areas (FCA) and Areas with a Controlled Reduced Tide (CRT) to give “Space to the River” is an original idea that has been developed, implemented and monitored in a pilot project in Flanders, Belgium. Through years of development, this nature-based solution is proved to be an effective approach of providing protection against flooding and improving resilience of the estuary ecosystem under the threat of climate change.
    One of the important goals in the LIFE-SPARC project is to perform knowledge transfer of the FCA/CRT method, including the design methodology, the expected effects and the monitoring plan with European partners. This report is aligned with the LIFE-SPARC project Action C10: Transfer to other estuaries (Replicability & Transferability). This action aims to assess the applicability of the core concept in other European Estuaries.
    In the LIFE-SPARC project, an idealised modelling approach is proposed as a tool for assessing the applicability for six European estuaries. This approach requires schematization of the geometry and the measures in each estuary, and only the important physical processes will be considered.
    As the first step of the comparative study, this report focuses on the schematization of estuary geometry. The necessary data consisting of the characteristics of each estuary has been collected and analysed. The representative geometry of each estuary is derived and will be used in the idealised modelling later.
