Changes of the operation of the Ems storm surge barrier to reduce the concentrations of suspended matter and dredging volumes

In the course of the project a three dimensional model of the Ems estuary is developed. It is used to simulate the hydro-morphological effects of different scenarios in which the Ems storm surge barrier is used for controlling tidal dynamics to reduce the import of sediment into the lower Ems river. The effects on suspended sediment transport and sedimentation volumes are assed.
