Abstract

The Integrated Plan of the Upper Sea Scheldt describes a set of morphological adjustments designed to improve the quality of the system by 2050. The intended improvements encompass, among others, ecological functioning, flood control, shipping and maintenance efforts. Within this context a number of alternative morphological adjustments have been designed with different degrees of impact on the current morphology: the C-alternatives. In addition, different climate scenarios have been designed to assess the robustness of the effects against future climatic changes. In this report, we compare the predictions for habitats and higher trophic levels - Twaite shad and Common teal - for the different C-alternatives against predictions for the reference situation in 2050.
