A sand transport model for the Scheldt estuary was made in the framework of the integrated plan “Upper Sea Scheldt”. This model is called “Scaldis Sand” and was able to reproduce sand transport rates measured along the Sea Scheldt and was as such validated. In this report the Scaldis sand model is adopted to evaluate the effects of the C-alternatives on the sand transport with a focus on the Upper Sea Scheldt. A new mesh that is extended to accommodate the new measures of C alternatives is used in the model. The boundary forcing and other model settings are kept the same as in the model for the B alternatives. The net sand transport, the tidal asymmetry and the erosion/deposition are computed. The effects of the new measures on these variables are analysed and discussed in the report.
