At MUMM a model is being developed for the calculation of the transport of the dumped dredging material at the Belgian coast. It s being developed in charge of the Dienst der Kusthavens (Service of the Coastal Harbours).

For which purposes is the model used ?
How does the model work ?
A hydrodynamic model with high resolution for the Belgian coastal zone.
Some results of the model.
Measurements of the sediment transport at sea.
