Welcome!

The Sediment Charactetistics of the Schelde Estuary is an app that let you visualize the sediment composition of the Schelde Estuary.
The app was created for ScheldeMonitor by the Flanders Marine Institute.
Data for this application is retrieved directly from 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 general parameters (turbidity, flux, etc.) and for sediment composition (clay, sand, lime, silt). In each tab you can find maps, data tables and plots.
All plots, maps and tables in this application are interactive. The visualized parameter, the number of stations, the time range and the distance to Vlissingen can be adjusted by using the sliders in the left menu.
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.
