Abstract

Variations occurred as a result of large-scale human interference (deepening the approach channel to Zeebrugge, closure of Dutch Delta estuaries). The variations were small compared with the annual longshore mud transport, which is dominated by the amount of mud that passes from Dover Strait to Belgian-Dutch waters (c 8.5 10-6 tons per year), but were relatively large when compared with the mud transport in the 20 km wide coastal zone. Fluctuations in the annual frequency and duration of gales can cause the annual flux of mud to double in some years. - (L'A.)
