Holzwarth, I., Kösters, F.. Effects of Changes in Sea Level on the Tidal Dynamics of the River Weser. In: Schwarzer, K., Schrottke, K., Stattegger, K. (eds.). From Brazil to Thailand - New Results in Coastal Research. Coastline Reports (16), pp. 97-100. EUCC - Die Küsten Union Deutschland e.V., Rostock, 2010.

Zusammenfassung: A system study was conducted with the aid of a 3D hydrodynamic numerical model to enable the impact of changes in sea level on the estuary of the River Weser to be estimated more accurately. During the study the mean tide level and mean tidal range were raised and the results were subsequently analysed with regard to the tide-related characteristic values. The results show an increase in the tidal range in the estuary along with an increase in the current velocities, in particular in the flood current velocity. In addition, an intrusion of high salt concentrations further upstream was observed. Within the range of values examined, the system variables within the estuary reacted linearly to the changes introduced at the boundaries of the model.
