IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

ABSTRACT
Recently there has been a growing interest in the question whether or not the Scheldt estuary may evolve towards a hyperturbid
system. Typical for such a regime shift is an increase in suspended particle matter (SPM) over a time scale of several
decades. In this research we studied the historical evolution of SPM in the Scheldt estuary by the analysis of data over a
period of 18 years (1995-2013). We looked at the effect of the tide, riverine discharge, seasons and sediment disposal
(short-term) in order to understand the effect of these physical parameters on the SPM signal and its historical evolution
(long-term).
