The dumping of dredged material in the Zeeschelde (B.) requires an environmental license it is necessary to know the expected effects on the ecosystem. An assessment of these effects is made on the basis on the available data, which has to be synthesised. A monitoring program is proposed in order to have optimal follow up of the expected effects. Therefore an ecosystemmodel will be used, and if necessary further developed.
