Introduction & summary

This tool calculates the yearly siltation inside the harbour basin based on the theory of Van Rijn (Harbour siltation and control measures, 2012). The tool uses tidal characteristics (mean high water MHW, mean low water MLW and ebb/flood flow velocities) and harbour characteristics (Total surface area, entrance width and entrance configuration) to calculate the exchanged volumes of water and suspended sediment, variable concentrations and the yearly sedimentation within the harbour basin.
