Zusammenfassung: The IPCC (2007) estimates for the 21th century a sea level rise of 18-59 cm. This scenario is alarming for coastal regions all over the world. The german Wadden Sea has to be protected not only for the anthropogenic/economic values but for the unique ecological system, which is placed on the World Heritage list by UNESCO. The mainland coastlines are protected by dykes. Offshore are small marsh islands (Halligen) and sand bars. They serve as a wave breaker. The Halligen in the district of Nordfriesland show an annual surface growth that is the result of hibernal flooding delivering sediments. This process is important for the existence of the Halligen and though probably constrained by relative sea level changes it is up to now not thoroughly quantified. The quantification of the sediment amount that is accumulated at Hallig Hooge was subject of a 9 week Bachelor thesis. Therefore different types of sediment traps were installed for the season of 2009/10 with one flooding. The sediments were differentiated in an organic, carbonaceous and a siliciclastic fraction. The median siliciclastic sediment amount of the 2009/10 flooding was between 388 g/m2 and 725 g/m2, equivalent to a surface growth between 0.26 mm and 0.48 mm depending on the type of sediment trap.
