Depth profiles (Sea Scheldt, 2015) (diepteprofielen_2015)

In the Sea Scheldt and tributaries the profiles of 28 mud flat and salt marsh zones are measured annually on lines perpendicular to the shore. For each profile detailed measurements are made with sedimentation erosion plots as well (reference pole with 16 measurements around it) to statistically detect changes to profiles too. The measurements take place from the toe of the dyke to the low water line. While being measured the profiles are described on morphodynamic features and documented on fixed points with photographs. Granulometry is also determined for microdynamics on those lines.

Ecotope map (Scheldt, 2016) (ecotoop2016)

These maps were constructed based on the descriptions given in Van Braeckel et al. (2012), as well as earlier MONEOS reports. The ecotope map the result of the merger of two separate layers, being an fysiotopic and a geomorphologic layer. The maps of the lower Sea Scheldt, upper Sea Scheldt, Rupel and Durme were actualised in 2016. The geomorphologic layer is a polygon map that was actualized in 2016 using ARCGIS, based on 'false colour' imagery from the lower Sea Scheldt (source: nv De Vlaamse Waterweg) and 'true colour' orthoimagery from the upper Sea Scheldt, Rupel and Durme. Because the time at which the images were collected does not precisely match low tide, interpretation of the substrate in low lying areas has also been done based on 'true colour' orthoimagery from march 2017 (source: GDI-Vlaanderen AGIV), as well as field observations and digital height models.

The vegetation map contains the enclosing polygons of areas whose vegetation belongs to the same ecotope. The diversity, distribution and surface of the different vegetation types in the salt marshes is monitored by means of vegetation maps. For the classic vegetation mapping, vegetation units are distinguished based on false colour IR aerial images. When mapping occurs through remote sensing, hyperspectral images are made. A classification based on pixel properties provides a typology associated with vegetation types.

Vegetation map (Sea Scheldt, 2011) (vegetatiekaart2011)

The diversity and spread of several types of vegetation have been monitored by vegetation mappings. These mappings are done by both classic methods and remote sensing techniques. Classic methods use false colour IR aerial images to distinguish vegetation units, which receive a specific type based on the physiognomic system of dominant structural and species-related features. Remote sensing techniques use hyperspectral images. Here, a classification is made based on the properties of the pixels, which results in a typology to which different vegetation types can be connected. This connection is aided by collected ground data. The overhead flights are preferably done in August or September.

Vegetation map (Lower Sea Scheldt, 2013) (vegetatiekaart2013)

The vegetation map contains the enclosing polygons of areas whose vegetation belongs to the same ecotope. The diversity, distribution and surface of the different vegetation types in the salt marshes is monitored by means of vegetation marks. For the classic vegetation mapping, vegetation units are distinguished based on false colour IR aerial images. When mapping occurs through remote sensing, hyperspectral images are made. A classification based on pixel properties provides a typology associated with vegetation types.

Vegetation coverage per species in % (point observations, Sea Scheldt, unknown) (vegetatieopnames_losse)

INBO (planten)

Vegetation coverage per species in % (Sea Scheldt, 1995-2009) (vegetatieopnames_pq)

In the salt marsh areas, the diversity of higher plants is followed through vegetation recordings. These are made from existing permanent squares and supplemented with loose vegetation recordings which are stratified random localised according to their current vegetation types or target vegetation types.

Vegetation coverage per species in % (Sea Scheldt, 2011-2013) (vegetatieopnames_pq_2015)

In the salt marsh areas, the diversity of higher plants is followed up through vegetation recordings. These are made from existing permanent squares and supplemented with loose vegetation recordings which are stratified random localised according to their current vegetation types or target vegetation types.
