Nederland, Zeeland, Oosterschelde, 12-06-2009; Detail stormvloedkering tussen Noord-Beveland en Schouwen (linksboven). Doordat de getijdewerking in de Oosterschelde kleiner is dan voorheen, de zogenaamde 'zandhonger', worden de zandplaten steeds kleiner..Storm surge barrier in Oosterschelde (East Scheldt), between Islands of Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland; North Sea on this side of the barrier. Under normal circumstances the barrier is open to allow for the tide to enter and exit. In case of high tides in combination with storm, the slides are closed..As a result of the reduction of tidal height no new sand is deposited on the sand bars which slowly erode, causing environmental problems.Swart collectie, luchtfoto (25 procent toeslag); Swart Collection, aerial photo (additional fee required).foto Siebe Swart / photo Siebe Swart
