Quantification of carbon-, nitrogen-, phosphorus- and oxygenfluxes in the Westerschelde Estuary: integration of observations and numerical methods

Completed: October 2003 - September 2005

Based on available datasets, mathematical models of ecosystemfunctioning of the Westerschelde are designed and scaled; if insufficient information is available for estimation of the model parametersettings, extra data will be collected; especially measurements of stable isotope ratio's will be used. The models allow us to calculate the rates of biogeochemical processes and other variables that are difficult to measure.
