The upper reservoir intervals of the Lower Jurassic Åre Formation in the Heidrun Field (Offshore mid-Norway) are very heterolithic and have the lowest oil recovery factor of the field despite significant amounts of remaining reserves. One of these reservoir zones is the formation Åre 6.2, which is mainly composed of tide-dominated heterolithic...

Trace metals appear in estuarine systems in two forms: dissolved and particulate. <br/>Describing the partitioning between these two forms is done by a coefficient, K_d, which relies on a number of environmental parameters, such as the salinity of the water and the seasonally dependent biological activity. Although this coefficient is known to...

The Volta Delta Region is facing not only the challenge of severe coastal erosion, but also to create a balance between the nature and the challenges brought by the urbanization. By these challenges, the project shows a possible future in developing a vulnerable area with an integrated landscape in a dynamic situation of delta region with...

Intertidal flats and salt marshes can protect hinterland against wave energy and flooding by tides or storm surges. Thus, the development of tidal flats is important to foresee. The presence of specific small scale features could indicate a certain development and large scale morphological shape. The shape is a predictor for development and it...

Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...

Small blind estuaries are a common phenomenon on the coast of Nicaragua, but unfortunately not much is known on their hydrological characteristics. A blind estuary can be identified by a sandbar that temporarily closes the estuary from sea. These blind estuaries often have very diverse flora and fauna on which they play an important ecological...

This study is about the effect of outer-delta bottom topographies adaptations on salt water intrusion in estuaries. An increase in salt water intrusion is considered as problematic in a lot of estuaries in the world. Various solutions are developed in the past to reduce salt water intrusion. These solutions have also negative side effects. An...

Aim of this graduation project is to improve the resilience of the Broad Channel Community against future storm surge. The design of the Broad Channel Resilience Center strengthens the community by adding social functions, educates and forms consensus for resilient living and serves a relief function after a storm surge.

Consider an estuary which is described by two governing equations for two variables, the water level 'zeta' and the velocity 'u'. Having two governing equations (Saint-Venant, 1871) is sufficient to perform time integration. The problem statement for a finite domain contains two boundary conditions and an initial condition. However, if the...

Dijkstra, Y.M. (author)
The intrusion of sea water into estuaries creates a complex flow that results from the density difference between fresh river run-off and salty sea water. In combination with other processes, such as tides, these complex flows are of interest because they affect the transport of e.g. salt, sediments and nutrients in water, which determine the...

The Slufter is an estuary located in Texel’s North Sea dunes and protects the hinterland from flooding from the North Sea. As the multi actor environment and the diversity of values and functions associated with the Slufter are recognized, this research focuses on developing an approach for the district water board to broaden the knowledge base...

Dispersion is often hard to incorporate in analytical salt intrusion models. The analytical models of Savenije (1986) and Kuijper & Van Rijn (2011) are quite similar and use a predictive equation for the dispersion in the estuary mouth. The biggest difference between the two models is the Van der Burgh K for which Kuijper and Van Rijn stated...

In this paper I present a novel method to determine the time of occurrence of tidal slack with a GPS receiver mounted on an anchored buoy commonly used to delineate shipping lanes in estuaries and tidal channels. Slack tide occurs when the tide changes direction from ebb to flood flow, or from flood to ebb. The determination of this point in...

Ecosystem management has made a shift from protected area management to multiple use management area, where humans are viewed as an integral part of the ecosystem. In practice, however, finding the balance between maximizing short-term gains on the one hand and long-term sustainability on the other seems harder. In this thesis the practice of...

The Westerschelde estuary in the South-West of the Netherlands displays two meandering flood and ebb channels separated by shoals. The system of flood, ebb channel and shoal between two channel crossings form a morphological cell. The stability of the serial cell system formed by the Westerschelde is important for the navigation route to the...

Existing Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) for Poole Harbour was the first generation produced in 2004, which is before statutory obligations to protect the natural coastline were fully realised. Under the idea of ‘adopting a sustainable policy for the longer-term’, at present the second generation of SMP is being produced. This study was...

inland transportation of goods. The artificial fairway channel provides entrance to the port of Paramaribo and Paranam. The motivation for this thesis project is the intention of lowering the fairway channel to increase the navigable depth, to create a cost-effective fairway for the bauxite and alumina transport activities. To obtain the...

The port of Kandla, which is situated in the north west of India and is subject to a large tidal variation of about 5 metres, is preparing a major expansion plan. The capacity of the harbour will be increased in two ways. Firstly the construction of several berths and jetties will allow more ships to be handled on a yearly basis. Secondly...

Het Haringvliet is een zeegat dat deel uitmaakt van het Deltagebied. Vanaf 1950 zijn er een aantal grote ingrepen gedaan in de monding van het Haringvliet, zoals de aanleg van de Maasvlakte en de Slufterdam en de bouw van de Haringvlietdam met spuisluizen. Door deze ingrepen is de hydrodynamische situatie en daarmee de morfologie ingrijpend...

Computer models are commonly used to simulate the behaviour of the coast in response to natural processes (e.g. storms, extreme sea levels) or management plans (e.g. beach nourishment, channel dredging). The COAST3D project was initiated to improve and validate these numerical models. COAST3D stands for Coastal Study of ThreeDimensional Sand...
