Archeological treasure in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (archeologiepnt)

Since long there is human presence in the basin of the Western Scheldt. This is shown by various archaeological finds that are from different periods of history. Spread over almost the entire Western Scheldt, along the (current) banks and in the sediment are the sites to be found. The oldest finds made in these areas are from the Stone Age. The map gives an overview of important archaeological sites in and on the banks of the Western Scheldt.

Dredging locations in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (baggerlocaties)

To keep the seaway to Antwerp at the required depth, dredging is performed on the bars since about 1900 by Flanders in the Western Scheldt. The map gives an overview of the maintenance and expansion work in 1998.

Buoyage in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (betonning)

Shallows, narrows and bends in the channel, tides and ship movements make the Western Scheldt a tricky seaway to navigate. To direct ships in the right direction, the itineraries are marked with buoys and markers.

Cables and (buried) pipes in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (kabels)

On the bottom of the Westerschelde are many cables and pipes. The cables, pipes and weights are not openly on the bottom of the estuary. Rijkswaterstaat distributes permits for the installation, with conditionss-compliance will include on the cover (usually a sand thickness). This coverage is necessary for both maintaining the cables and ensuring safety. The license also determines how often the applicant should check the cover.

Scheldt basin (stroomgebied)

The basin of the Scheldt has an area of 21,860 km2 and is bordered by the North Sea, by a number of coastal basins north of the Seine and the Meuse and IJzer basin. The natural boundary of the basin on land is created by the topography of the area: the differences in elevation of the soil determine how and to which basin the water runs off and give it the boundary of the basin

Vegetatiekaart 1992 (versie 2017) (vegetatiekaart1992_v2017)

De vegetatiekaart bevat de omhullende polygonen van gebieden waarvan de vegetatie tot eenzelfde ecotoop behoort. De diversiteit, spreiding en oppervlakte van de verschillende vegetatietypes op de schorren wordt opgevolgd aan de hand van vegetatiekarteringen. Voor de klassieke vegetatiekartering worden op basis van false colour IR luchtbeelden vegetatie-eenheden onderscheiden. Bij een kartering door middel van remote sensing worden hyperspectraalbeelden gemaakt. Een classificatie op basis van pixeleigenschappen levert een typologie op waaraan vegetatietypes worden gekoppeld.

Fishing grounds of cockles in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (visgrondenkokkels)

The map shows that the importance of the various fishing grounds for cockles very different is in the Western Scheldt. In the Western Scheldt are for cockles from the Voordelta to approximately Hansweert. Further, the salinity of the water is too low.

Fishing grounds of soles in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (visgrondentong)

At various places in the Western Scheldt there is commercial fishing for sole, shrimp and clams. In addition, there is very limited fishing for eels. Besides the immediate importance for fisheries, there is also an indirect interest. The Western Scheldt is an important area in which young shrimp, juvenile sole and plaice grow (the maternity and nursery function). The young tongue moves in the spring on the Western Scheldt far to the east, into the sweet Scheldt. The adult tongue uses the estuary as a spawning area.

Drainage in the Scheldt basin (ScheldeAtlas) (waterafvoer)

The annual average water discharge of the Scheldt in Schelle, where the Rupel and Schelde merge, measures 110 m3/s on average. The discharge at Schelle is roughly composed of two equal parts. One part comes from the Scheldt, the other from the Rupel. The influence of the Scheldt in winter is a bit higher, that of the Rupel in the summer. The contribution to the Rupel comes mainly from the Dijle/Demer and to a lesser extent from the Zenne and the Nete. Just before the confluence of the Rupel and the Scheldt, the Dender provides a significant contribution to the Scheldt.

Sand extraction in the Western Scheldt (ScheldeAtlas) (zandwinning)

By sand extraction in the period 1955 - 1995 more than 87 million m3 net of sand was extracted from the Western Scheldt. On the long term, the sand extraction may be greater than the excess of sand and that would mean extending the estuary. Because the effects of this expansion on the morphological system are not well determined, the maximum amount of sand to extract was maximum 2.6 million m3 per year in the recent years. Of this 2 million was for the regular trade and 600,000 m3 for the two governments (the Netherlands and Belgium) together.
