This report provides a safety analysis of the ComCoast concept at Neersiel in Germany. The ComCoast concept is to use a wide coastal area for water defence purposes. The wide coastal area can be referred to as a coastal defence zone. The primary dike will be provided with a overtopping resistant revetment allowing more seawater to overtop the...

The wave overtopping simulator is a device which is able to simulate overtopping waves at the crest of a dike and at the inner slope. The device has been used in the ComCoast project to test a traditional dike section with grass and the SGR, the Smart Grass Reinforcement, placed in May 2006. This report describes in the first part (Chapters 1-6)...

Dit rapport beschrijft een veiligheidsanalyse van het ComCoast-concept voor de BreeBaart-polder te Groningen. Het ComCoast-concept gaat uit van een brede waterkering, waarbij de primaire dijk overslagbestendig is en de achterliggende polder wordt benut voor het opvangen van het overslaande water.

Climate change will cause increasing physical loads on the flood defence of the Province of Groningen along the North Sea over the next decades. This is caused by a sea level rise between 15 and 35 centimetres whilst the ground level is lowering between 38 and 48 centimetres until the year 2050. This results in salt-water intrusion into the land...

The ComCoast concept involves measures in seaward and landward direction. One of the options in landward direction is an overtopping dike. In this concept the crest and/or inner slope of the dike is strengthened so that more overtopping of the dike can be allowed. Advantage is that heightening of the dike is not necessary and furthermore this...

Projects using innovative concepts in coastal defence -like ComCoast- can benefit greatly from participatory action. It can lead to innovative solutions with a broad societal support base, as is shown in the plan for water storage in the Overdiepse polder and the inundation compensation scheme for farmers in the upper River Dinkel region. This...

De Zeeuwse kust staat onder druk. Naar verwachting zal de zeespiegel deze eeuw ongeveer 60 centimeter stijgen door klimaatverandering. Niet alleen de zee, maar ook de rivieren zorgen naar alle waarschijnlijkheid voor een stijging. De deltawateren zijn nu weliswaar afgesloten van Rijn, Maas en Schelde, maar in de toekomst wordt wellicht de...

An important element in the ComCoast concept is the overtopable sea defence (often a dike). In this concept the landward (inner) slope of the dike is adjusted in such a way that it can withstand higher overtopping rates. Two new concepts for covering the inner slope, sand cover and perforated mats, are discrebed in this report.

One area of ecological benefit not yet fully evaluated in European waters is the utilisation of restored saltmarsh habitats by fish species. This study examines the utilisation of managed realignments and relic saltmarsh by fish species. Factors affecting habitat heterogeneity and fish populations are discussed, and recommendations are made with...

The present report deals with the application of a provisional Smart Grass Reinforcement (SGR) system in 2006 for full scale testing of increased overtopping at the Groningen sea dyke test section near Delfzijl, as envisaged in 2007. The SGR has been placed at two strips of 4 m wide: one primary strip at the basic test site and one at a...

The objective of ComCoast (Combined functions in coastal defence zones) is to investigate how a multifunctional wide sea defence zone might be created. Instead of just increasing the height and weight of the dike, solutions are searched in the wide sea defence zone landward. These is an number of technical solutions, one of them is increasing...

In January 2001 a reduced tidal regime was introduced in Polder Breebaart, a polder located in the northern-east part of the Province of Groningen (The Netherlands). This reduced tidal regime was achieved by building a culvert in the seawall, connecting the polder with the seawater from the Dollard, a part of the Ems-estuary. The aim was (1)to...
