The mechanisms leading to the formation and maintenance of a Coastal Turbidity Maximum (CTM) along the Belgian coastline was investigated using a complex 3D numerical model. Interpretation of model results suggests that the sediment concentration in this CTM may have strongly increased as a result of human interventions in the 1980’s. The large...

The Ems and Loire evolved into hyper-turbid estuaries in the course of the 20th
century. Winterwerp et al. (2013 a, b) argued that narrowing and deepening of these
rivers induced a regime shift towards these hyper-turbid conditions. This regime
shift was presumed to be driven by a positive feed-back between tidal
amplification,...

Port maintenance and nature preservation are two often conflicting aspects of coastal management. Within a Pilot Project in the Western Wadden Sea (the Netherlands - see Figure1a) we test a win-win solution that could reduce harbour siltation while simultaneously stimulate saltmarsh development.
For this purpose, fine material, dredged in...

This paper presents a fast consolidation model suitable for long-term morphodynamic simulations. This model is applicable for muddy systems where sedimentation rates are smaller than consolidation rates, assuming quasi-equilibrium of the consolidating bed. It compares to the consolidation model developed by Sanford (2008). However, in that model...
