The project "Ecomorphology of estuaries and tidal lagoons" is a co-operative between WL|Delft Hydraulics, the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of the Technical University Delft (TUD-CiTG) and the Netherlands Institute of Ecology, Centre for Estuarine and Marine Ecology (NIOO-CEME). The project is funded by the Stichting Technische Wetenschappen (STW; Technical Sciences Foundation) and has an end-user group which comprises various coastal- and water-related (governmental and non-governmental) institutes.·
The research done within the ECOMORPH project will contribute to a better understanding of sedimentary processes in coastal and estuarine intertidal areas and the quantification of the influence of different benthic groups on these processes.
Interaction between the different partners
Strong interactions between the various partners in this project are foreseen. The coupling between studies done on purely physical factors and those which integrate biological and physical forcing will be paramount in this project.
