Welcome!

The Distribution of pollutants in the Schelde Estuary is an app that let you visualize the distribution of pollutants of the Schelde Estuary distinguishing between matrices: sediment, water and biota.
The app was created for ScheldeMonitor by the Flanders Marine Institute.
Data for this application is retrieved directly from the ScheldeMonitor's databases, through a webservice URL from the ScheldeMonitor's toolbox.
In this way, data in the app is completely up-to-date and shows the most recent information available.

Plots, maps and charts.

From the left navigation panel you'll be able to access data for a category of pollutant (heavy metals, phenols, biocides, etc) and then select a specific parameter filtering first by matrix (water, sediment or biota) and by tpollutant type. In each tab you can find maps, data and plots.

All plots, maps and data tables in this application are interactive. The visualized parameter, the time range and the distance to Vlissingen can be adjusted by using the sliders in the left menu. The number of stations shown can be selected directly in the plots: doubleclicking in a stationname highlights only that station, then you can add another by clicking on it.

For a quick walkthrough have a look at the video below.

Data availability

For some parameters in this application, a quality control of the data is taking place, so the data is temporarily unavailable. We will try to have the data ready as soon as we can.

Interactive apps in ScheldeMonitor

These applications are created and maintained by VLIZ, using R and RShiny programming. Visitors can use the apps to interactively create graphs and figures about nutrients, water levels, wave levels and species distribution in the Scheldt estuary. The apps are momentarily only available in dutch, but will receive an english version in 2023.
