2011 Coastal Engineering Proceedings  
Based on a case study sediment transport was modeled numerically for the Jade estuary. Due to the construction of the JadeWeserPort the morphology in the area is undergoing a relocation. The study gives an overview on various studies undertaken as a consultant tool to help designers and decisions makers. A hydrodynamic as well as a morphodynamic numerical model was set up. Although the input data on the morphodynamic part was limited, the results showed that the tool at hand is capable of
