    A dynamic model for morphological development in a tidal inlet, ¿Het Friesche Zeegat¿, in the Wadden Sea along the northern coast of the Netherlands, is set up to obtain a better understanding of the behaviour of the morphological system around tidal inlets. The model is based on , a program package for morphological changes, developed at Delft Hydraulics. Computations of the flow, the sediment transport, the initial bed level change rate as well as long-term morphological development have been carried out. The model has proven to be a useful research tool, even though it does not yet reproduce reality in detail.
