Interestuarine comparison: Hydro-geomorphology

4. TIDE estuaries

In this chapter an overview is given of estuary parameters along the longitudinal length axis (distances in this chapter in TIDE kilometers = the distance to the up-estuary boundary) of the four TIDE estuaries (Scheldt, Elbe, Weser and Humber). First, the estuary parameters are described per estuary (§4.1 - §4.4), followed by the figures where each parameter is presented for all 4 estuaries (§4.5). More general information on the four estuaries can be found in the TIDE fact sheets (;83&lang_id=1).
