With large-scale human interventions and climate change unfolding as they are now, coastal changes at decadal timescales are not limited to incremental modifications of systems that are fixed in their general geometry, but often show significant changes in layout that may be catastrophic for populations living in previously safe areas. This...

Increasingly large sand nourishments are used for the maintenance of sandy coasts around the world. There is, however, still very limited understanding of their behaviour (i.e. redistribution) and effects on the marine environment. This PhD thesis explores the morphological reshaping of shoreface nourishments (i.e. long bunds of sand placed at...

Shoreface nourishments are commonly applied for coastal maintenance, but their behaviour is not well understood. Bathymetric data of 19 shoreface nourishments located at alongshore uniform sections of the Dutch coast were therefore analyzed and used to validate an efficient method for predicting the erosion of shoreface nourishments. Data shows...

The behaviour of subtidal sandbars can be strongly influenced by the introduction of sand nourishments in the coastal system. This study focuses on the impact of nourishments on subtidal bar behaviour at spatio-temporal scales beyond a single nourishment project. It aims to determine the long-term behaviour of subtidal sandbars along an entire...

Large perturbations in the coastline, such as the 'Sand Motor' nourishment (∼21 million m<sup>3</sup>) at the Holland coast, can initiate considerable spatial and temporal changes in the median grain size (D<sub>50</sub>) of the sea bed on the lower shoreface. The relevance of hydrodynamic conditions for the development of the heterogeneity...

Mega-nourishments, aiming at providing long-term coastal safety, nature qualities and recreational space, have been applied recently at the Holland coast and are considered at various other places in the world. Methods to quickly evaluate the potential and lifetime of these coastal mega nourishments are therefore very much desired, which is...

Impact of spatial variability in the nearshore bathymetry on net sediment transport rates has been investigated for a selection of observed beach states at the Dutch coast. The beach states comprise a longshore bar trough and two transverse bar rip situations, which were present at the large scale Sand Motor nourishment at the Holland coast....

The presence of complex nearshore sand bar patterns (i.e. alongshore bathymetric variability) has an impact on local currents, affecting recreational safety and nearshore mixing processes. This study assesses the evolution of alongshore bathymetric variability along the Delfland coast in The Netherlands, over the first 5 years after construction...

Bed sediment composition, with a focus on the median grain size D<sub>50</sub>, was investigated at a large-scale nourishment (The ‘Sand Motor’) at the Dutch coast (∼21.5 million m<sup>3</sup> sand). Considerable alongshore heterogeneity of the bed composition (D<sub>50</sub>) was observed as the Sand Motor evolved over time with (1)...

Understanding of the behaviour of coastline perturbations at soft-coastlines is essential for modelling coastal evolution at decadal time scales. Many coastline models do, for example, implicitly assume dominant diffusive behaviour of coastline features. The validity of this assumption is investigated for the Dutch coast on the basis of data on...

Coastal zone managers in the Netherlands require new dedicated tools for the assessment of the long-term impacts of coastal maintenance policies. The policies need to be evaluated on the impacts on multiple coastal functions in order to be able to optimize the performance of such strategies. This paper provides the technical backgrounds of such...

Framework Within the framework of the 'Room for the River' policy in the Netherlands several river bypasses are studied. One of these projects is the Noordwaard, which is a special project, because a large polder (about 20km2) will change into a tidal influenced area. The primary water defences in the North of the polder (Nieuwe Merwede) are to...
