Sandy foreshores, beaches and dunes play an eminent role in flood risk reduction in coastal areas, reducing the impact of wind waves and storm surges on the hinterland. In some areas, sandy protection is naturally present. In other coastal areas, engineering solutions are needed to provide safety. “Soft” sediment-based solutions often serve...

Low-energy, non-tidal lake beaches are known to be subject to longshore morphodynamics, but little is known about how they are driven by wind and wave-driven currents. Lake Markermeer is a shallow (∼4 m deep), wind-dominated lake, of approximately 700 km<sup>2</sup>. A gradient in wind-induced water level set-up at the leeward shore induces a...

Many sand spits are morphodynamically complex landforms, that are either analysed with complex and expensive computational models or at a conceptual level. Therefore, most case studies on spits in different environments are descriptive. A novel method based on the use of polar coordinates was devised to quantitatively analyse spit...

The morphodynamic behaviour of low-energy beaches is poorly understood, compared to that of exposed coasts. This study analyses the morphological development of sandy, low-energy beaches and the steering hydrodynamic processes. Four densely-monitored study sites in the non-tidal lake Markermeer in the Netherlands offered a unique opportunity...

The use of the detached offshore submerged breakwater (SBW) for coastal protection has an increasing popularity due to its low aesthetic impact on the natural environment. Submerged breakwaters however have only rarely been adopted and therefore its efficacy remains largely unknown (Ranasinghe et al. 2010). Shoreline erosion has been reported in...

This report presents a study of the Malecón Tradicional in front of ‘Centro de Havana’ and ‘Havana Vieja’ in the city Havana, Cuba. The objective is to develop a sea defence solution that prevents unacceptable flooding of the hinterland and damage of the Malecón seawall. Implementing the recommended solutions reduces the overtopping sufficiently...
