Many estuaries are strongly modified by human interventions, including substantive channel deepening. In the Ems River Estuary (Germany and Netherlands), channel deepening between the 1960s and early 2000s coincided with an increase in the maximum near-bed suspended sediment concentration from moderate (∼1 kg/m <sup>3</sup> ) to high (&gt;10...

Using an idealized width-averaged process-based model, the role of a mud pool on the bed and time-varying river discharge on the trapping of fine sediment is systematically investigated. For this purpose, a dynamically and physically motivated description of erodibility is presented, which relates the amount of sediment on the bed to the...

The iFlow modelling framework is a width-averaged model for the systematic analysis of the water motion and sediment transport processes in estuaries and tidal rivers. The distinctive solution method, a mathematical perturbation method, used in the model allows for identification of the effect of individual physical processes on the water...

This study presents an analysis of the planform stability of the complex embayed beach system of Da Nang Bay, central Vietnam. As a result of the intensification of extreme weather conditions and human activities in this area (e.g. land reclamation, river damming, and coastal structures), coastal safety as well as economic and ecological values...

This study investigates the potential of rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to monitor the surfzone. This paper shows that these UAVs are extremely flexible surveying platforms that can gather nearcontinuous moderate spatial resolution and high temporal resolution imagery from a fixed position high above a study site. The rotary wing...

Barrier coasts and their associated tidal inlet systems are a common feature in many parts of the world. They constitute dynamic environments that are in a continuous stage of adapting to the prevailing tide and wave conditions. Commonly, these coastal areas are densely populated and (partly) as a result there often exists a strong conflict of...

Barrier coasts display a chain of islands, separated by tidal inlets that connect a back-barrier basin to a sea or ocean. Observations show that barrier island length generally decreases for increasing tidal range and increasing basin area. However, this has neither been reproduced in model studies nor explained from the underlying physics. This...

This study investigates the influence of basin geometry on the cross-sectional stability of double inlet systems. The inlet is in equilibrium when the amplitude of the inlet velocities equals the equilibrium velocity (~1 m s-1). This equilibrium is stable when after a perturbation the cross-sections of both inlets return to their original...

The well-known empirical relationship between the equilibrium cross-sectional area of tidal inlet entrances (A) and the tidal prism (P), first developed by O’Brien (1931), has been extensively reviewed. Our theoretical investigations indicate that a unique A-P relationship should only be expected for clusters of inlets that are phenomenological...

Barrier island coasts are a common feature in many parts of the world. An example is the Wadden coast of The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. These coasts consist of barrier islands separated by tidal inlets with at the landward side tidal basins.Characteristic for the Wadden Sea is that the tidal basins are not completely separated,but are...
