The Delta Works consist of a series of engineering works as shown in Fig. E.7. We consider the three closures at the mouths of the three estuaries: Haringvliet, Grevelingen and Eastern Scheldt. An overview of the characteristics of these three closures is listed in Table E.2. In the following two sections the effects of these closures on the development of the area seawards of the closures and the effects in the enclosed basins are discussed.
