The behaviour of suspended matter in the Seine estuary is due to the high organic content, the morphology of the dyked channel flow, the erosion/settlement processes and hydrodynamical parameters which come from tidal cycles and meteorological events. SPM discharge from the catchment area are focused during flood stages. One part of these materials moves to the mouth estuary and then are exported in the outer estuarine zone of Baie de Seine. The other part settles on banks and hydrological extends and then is transfered to the mouth estuary or exported by dredging. The turbidity maximum zone of the mouth estuary changes according to hydrodynamical effects. Turbidity and hydrodynamical recordings give us fondamental data for the development of hydrosedimentological models of the estuary.
