Over the past decades the effect of vegetation (e.g. kelp, mangroves, sea grass) on nearshore coastal processes has received more and more attention. In recent years several numerical wave models have been extended to include this effect. In the current study, the numerical storm impact model XBeach was extended with formulations found in...

River-tide dynamics remain poorly understood, in part because conventional harmonic analysis (HA) does not cope effectively with nonstationary signals. To explore nonstationary behavior of river tides and the modulation effects of river discharge, this work analyzes tidal signals in the Yangtze River estuary using both HA in a nonstationary mode...

Roseires Reservoir, located on the Blue Nile River in Sudan, is the first trap to the sediments coming from the vast upper river catchment in Ethiopia, which suffers from high erosion and desertification problems. The reservoir has already lost more than one-third of its storage capacity due to sedimentation in the last four decades. Appropriate...

Numerous research efforts have been devoted to understanding estuarine morphodynamics under tidal forcing. However, the impact of river discharge on estuarine morphodynamics is insufficiently examined. Inspired by the Yangtze Estuary, this work explores the morphodynamic impact of river discharge in a 560 km long tidal basin based on a 1-D model...

A hampering factor in the application of morphodynamic models is the potential excessive time needed to complete a simulation. One way to upscale a model run is the use of a morphological factor, or MORFAC. In this paper, we investigate the upper limit to the value of the MORFAC as a function of model geometry and timestep for a schematized case...

Discussion paper. Roseires Reservoir, located on the Blue Nile River, in Sudan, is the first trap to the sediments coming from the upper catchment in Ethiopia, which suffers from high erosion and desertification problems.

When a ship sails with a certain speed, there is always a return current along and under the ship. The return current induces a water level depression around the ship. When the ship travels along a bank, the flow field around the ship is asymmetrical. Additional bank effects will be induced. A reliable estimation of all these effects and the...

This paper describes the development of a physics-based rip current prediction system called CoSMoS. This system consists of a hydrodynamic prediction system which is composed of a train of surge and wave models from the global scale to the scale of a beach resort (order kilometers). For the beach resort scale model, it is of utmost importance...

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...

Constructing a closure dam such as Afsluitdijk causes an instantaneous change in tidal wave propagation and flow field in the basin which triggers extensive morphological changes in the adjacent tidal basin. These morphological changes may continue for centuries before the whole system reaches a new "equilibrium" state, which is different from...

Sand beach profiles can exhibit nearshore sandbars with complex 3D patterns. Under energetic conditions, these patterns disappear and the bars get to a certain extent alongshore uniform. This phenomenon is called a reset. The existing literature mainly concerns the development of the bar patterns (3D) or the cross-shore migration of sandbars (2D...

Low frequency wave resonance has been postulated to enhance damage to coral reef protected coastlines during storm events. This paper uses the numerical model XBeach to examine the dynamics that contribute to resonance that have been previously observed on a fringing reef on Guam during tropical storm Man-Yi (Péquignet et al., 2009). The methods...

In the Nile River Basin, upstream runoff variability is an acute issue to downstream countries, since these countries are almost entirely dependent on Nile waters. Cooperative management of the Nile waters has become urgent, considering climate variations (Conway, 2005; Yates & Strzepek, 1998 a) and the necessity to use the water resource for...

Levees are small elevation ridges found on the edge between channels and shoals. They are known to develop along river channels during floods and along channels in alluvial deep water fans. Levees in tidal environments such as the Waddenzee are less pronounced (with a typical height in the order of 10 cm) and may be recognized by the fact that...

It is estimated that the waterway in North Passage would not be able to meet the demand of shipping development soon and it is necessary to open a new deep navigation channel with a depth of 10 m in North Channel in the near future. A pilot study on the regulation of North Channel was proposed by Yangtze Estuary Waterway Administration Bureau...

Applications of process-based morphodynamic models are often constrained by limited availability of data on bed composition, which may have a considerable impact on the modeled morphodynamic development. One may even distinguish a period of “morphodynamic spin-up” in which the model generates the bed level according to some ill-defined initial...

The effect of short wave breaking on low frequency waves is investigated using two breaker formulations implemented in a time-dependent numerical model (XBeach): (1) an advective-deterministic approach (ADA) and (2) the probabilistic breaker formulation of Roelvink (1993). Previous research has shown that the ADA breaker model gives different...

Recent events like the Sumatra tsunami and Hurricane Katrina have reminded the world of the vulnerability of coastal areas to extreme events. Despite hydraulic engineering measures to minimize failure probability of coastal defence structures, a probability of failure, albeit small, remains. To assist local authorities and the population in...

The morphodynamic system in alluvial, coastal plain estuaries is complex and characterized by various timescales and spatial scales. The current research aims to investigate the interaction between these different scales as well as the estuarine morphodynamic evolution. Use is made of a process-based, numerical model describing 2-D shallow water...
