Within the context of improving the Upper Sea Scheldt system by 2050 several alternative morphological adjustments have been proposed with different degrees of impact on the current morphology. In order to evaluate the expected impact of these adjustments a series of modelling tools have been developed to predict the effects of the alternatives on each of these components. In addition, different climate scenarios were designed to assess the effects under different magnitudes of future climatic changes. We compare the predictions for habitats and higher trophic levels for the different alternatives against predictions for the current situation and the reference situation in 2050.
