Management Unit of the Mathematical Model of the North Sea and Scheldt Estuary(MUMM)
Belgian Federal Ministry of Public Health and Environment
MUMM's modeling Group
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).
