Abstract: The cohesive sediment transport in tidal rivers and estuaries is determined by the river discharge, the morphology, the salinity, temperature and particulate gradients, the deposition and erosion processes, the effective settling velocity of mud particles and by the physico-chemical and biological processes. The combination of these processes ensures that mud concentration varies on different time-scales ranging from seconds to seasons. Based on a long-term measurement campaign at Prosperpolder (Scheldt Estuary, Belgium), a detailed analysis of mud concentration, salinity, temperature and freshwater discharge with regard to the various involved time-scales is presented.
