Sedimentation in the Port of Harlingen is relatively high, causing maintenance dredging costs. Frequently the municipality of Harlingen, the dredging contractor, and local pilots have a different opinion on the actual water depth available in critical spots in the port area. The municipality commissioned a quick scan of the situation in Port of Harlingen, aiming at a proposal for the execution of a series of measurements of hydraulic, sedimentologic and dredging parameters. The situation is complex because of sediment-rich tidal flows, density currents, and discharge of floodwater from backwaters.
