SEE ALL THE SERIES FROM the Eastern Scheldt Barrier.

This is water after the barrier. The area of the Scheldt. Vortices exist up to about 150 m

C'est l'eau apres le barrage. La partie de la Scheldt. Les tourbillons existent a peu pres 150 m.

Вода после барьера, вихри распространяются принмерно на 150 м. Это речная сторона Шельды.

См. ВСЮ СЕРИЮ, начиная с Eastern Scheldt Barrier.

Надя, дно рядом с барьером выложено специальным материалом примерно метров на 20, а потом в дно вбиты сваи и произведено укрепление грунта примерно до 150 м, т.к. из-за этих вихрей происходит эрозия дна.

If some one drop (Maybe dive) here, what will happen?

THANKS to everybody! I apologize for not answering - I am really very buzy and will be busy for a long time.

As to some questions: the current there is strong, there are horizontal and vertical vortices, and the diver should know how to be in these conditions. I think that there are very professional ones who can work in case of necessity at any conditions.

Because there are vortices, the bottom should erode. For preveniting this situation they have put special coating on the bottom near the barrier - about 20 m, and later they have put into the bottom special pilons and materials for about 150 m, up to there, where the vortices disappear, Olga
