Wave impact on the lower Zeeschelde at Galgenschoor (EVINBO)

Project Details


The project aims to estimate the ecological effects on the Galgenschoor caused by additional wave impact due to the opening of the Deurganckdoksluis.
1. What is the relative importance of wind and shipwaves at the Galgenschoor? (WL)
2. What is the contribution of waves to the morphodynamics of ecotopes? (WL-INBO)
3. What is the role of vegetation in damping wave impact on the banks (ECOBE-INBO)
