Abstract

A three-dimensional numerical model system is used to study the effect of a pos- sible large scale land reclamation on the motion of water and suspended sedi- ment in the sea area around the Rhine outlet and in the inland channels and har- bours of Rotterdam. The model is tide resolving and includes deposition and re- suspension of cohesive sediment.
