Current direction control at Bunthaus


The study should calculate the possible impact of changes in water flow through the two branches of the Elbe, ‘Norderelbe’ and ‘Süderelbe’, and the related sedimentation processes within the harbor. It was analyzed whether it was possible to reduce the sedimentation at the heavily used turning circles ’Altenwerder‘ and ’Köhlbrand‘ by controlling the direction and strength of the currents at ’Bunthäuser Spitze’.
