Several draft adaptations are before us to make the functioning of the Sea Scheldt more sustainable by 2050 . These each have their impact on hydrodynamics, sediment transport, water quality and pelagic ecosystem, habitat quality and fauna and flora.
Models are also used in the process. Two of them model the number of common teal in the salt marshes, and the habitat suitability for spawning and egg development for twaite shad. These models receive input from other models in the 'modelling train', a set of modelling tools.
In this report, we evaluate the performance of both models by comparing predictions based on actual data for the current situation with predictions based on data from the modelling train for the current situation.
