The characteristics of Dutch natural gas (DNG) have been quantified by measuring the laminar flame speed of a premixed Bunsen flame over a range of equivalence ratios ϕ, varied from ϕ=0.80 to ϕ=1.55. The laminar flame speed has been calculated from the OH* chemiluminescence images recorded with a high speed camera with an acquisition rate of 1...

KEY POINTS:
• While the formation of the intertidal shoal Hinderplaat was a direct consequence of a human intervention, its degradation was a natural response of the system to frequent hydrodynamic forcing conditions.

• Tidal currents push the Hinderplaat in offshore direction, but this is counteracted by waves: these...
