Abstract
    Estuaries are both ecological systems of high value being protected by European and national nature legislation and at the same time arteries for the economic growth of regions as they are used as shipping channels towards major seaports. They also deliver important goods and services to society, for example recreational space or a buffer against flooding. Estuaries are subject to many anthropogenic uses that may cause changes in hydrodynamics, habitat loss, and nutrient and pollutant levels. Therefore the sustainable management of these complex and dynamic systems means a huge challenge to their managing authorities.

    Within the INTERREG IV B North Sea Region project “TIDE – Tidal River Development” partners from environment agencies, port authorities, universities and waterways administrations from the Elbe (DE), Weser (DE), Scheldt (BE/NL) and the Humber (UK) estuary have joined forces during the last three years in order to develop tools and strategies to support estuary managers. This partnership has carried out numerous interdisciplinary, inter-estuarine comparative studies on natural processes, management systems and measures and has developed a web-based toolbox containing valuable knowledge, management tools and good practices.
