Figure 5

Process measurements for the full 1 month campaign on the Zuidgors intertidal flat (Western Scheldt; see Figs. 1a and 4a for the locations). (a) Bed level changes for both frames relative to the initial elevations. (b) Significant wave heights at \({\hbox {F}}_{\mathrm{L}}\) (near mean low water). (c) Water levels as measured in the channel (indicative for the full flat), the markers indicate the tidal range. (d) Flow velocity magnitudes at \({\hbox {F}}_{\mathrm{L}}\), the markers indicate the flood and ebb peaks. (e) Suspended sediment concentrations 60 cm above the bed at \({\hbox {F}}_{\mathrm{L}}\), the markers indicate the concentration that was exceeded for 2 h. (f)–(h) the maximum velocity of each tide versus the high water level. (i, j) the suspended sediment concentrations that were exceeded for 2 h versus the maximum velocity of each tide. The vertical black dashed lines indicate the peak of the storm of Fig. 4. All time series are in CET (UTC+1).
