Abstract
    A process-based morphological model of the Western Scheldt Estuary based on the finite elements method is presented in this paper. This model is able to successfully hindcast the morphological developments of the Western Scheldt over several decades. The measured sedimentation/erosion pattern versus the pattern calculated by FINEL2d over the period 1965-2002 was compared. Good agreement was found in overall patterns, although many differences were still to be seen in detail. It was concluded that the model can be used to evaluate different scenarios, making it a useful tool for decision making processes e.g. future deepenings of the fairway.
