Marker Wadden, the making of a bird paradise

Covering 70,000 hectares, the Markermeer is one of the biggest nature areas and freshwater lakes in the Netherlands and Europe. Nevertheless, in ecological terms the Markermeer has problems: there are no natural marshlands or riverbanks.

Measurement campaign turbidity Ems estuary, The Netherlands

The Ems estuary has a surplus of mud which disrupts the ecosystem. The high turbidity of the estuary hinders algae growth at the bottom of the food chain.

Research program natural Lake Marken – wetland pilot

Royal HaskoningDHV conducted the program NMIJ (‘Natuurlijker Markermeer IJmeer’) with the purpose to advise the government on measures to obtain a durable robust ecological situation in the second largest fresh water lake in the Netherlands.

Salt marsh development Marconi, Delfzijl


Mud motor Koehoal

Harbours are prone to accumulation of mud on the bottom and need to be dredged. What if we could optimise dredging and disposal strategies such that we can facilitate natural development of important habitat areas?

Clay ripening pilot

Too much mud is unfavourable for the water quality and biodiversity in the Ems-Dollard Estuary and its sedimentation can shallow channels, which need to be dredged.
