Process measurements for four tides along a storm event in 2016 on the Zuidgors intertidal flat (Western Scheldt). (a) Measurement stations (see Fig. 1a for the location of the transect). (b) Hourly-averaged wind speeds and directions at Vlissingen meteorological station (location in Fig. 1). (c)–(e) Water depths, including the derived astronomical water depths (the difference is the storm surge). (f)–(h) Flow velocity magnitudes (flood and ebb directions indicated in Fig. 1). (i, j) Significant wave heights (the wave logger of \({\hbox {F}}_{\mathrm{H}}\) was positioned 50 m downslope), including the significant wave height over depth ratio. (k, l) Suspended sediment concentrations at various distances from the bed. (m, n) Bed level changes relative to the initial elevations. The vertical black dashed lines indicate the peak of the storm. All time series are in CET (UTC+1).
