A possible way of generating a stable and predictable base load of renewable energy, supplementing the unpredictable wind and solar energy, is dynamic tidal power (DTP). DTP is generated with the use of large dam, which is built in the sea, under an angle with the propagating tidal wave. A dam of sufficient length can create a phase difference...

Sint Eustatius is a Caribbean island located in the north of the Lesser Antilles. The coastline west of the capital, Oranjestad Bay, is of vital importance to the island as it is here where tourism, recreation, the harbour and historical ruins are located. On the other hand, Oranjestad Bay has a heavily fluctuating beach, which is undesirable....

Chile is heavily dependent on international trade, making its port infrastructure crucial for its economic development. Projections show that container freight demand is growing rapidly. To cope with the growing demand, an expansion for the port of San Antonio has been proposed. However, current expansion plans have faced opposition due to...

Since early history, humans have been attracted to coastal areas. This can be related to the economic benefits of these areas due to access of ocean navigation, coastal fisheries, tourism and recreation (Seas and Plans, 2011). Around 40% of the world’s population lives within 100 km of the coast (Seas and Plans, 2011). People are drawn to sandy...

Knowledge of nearshore bathymetry is crucial for every aspect of the blue economy. Currently, it is expensive to obtain nearshore bathymetry at regional scales, and therefore this data is not available for many coasts. The data scarcity occurs especially in the global south and big ocean states that are at the highest risk from climate change....

The Oosterschelde has been an area of morphological change for centuries. Both floodings and human influences have caused the Oosterschelde to have its current shape. During the last century before implementation of the Delta plan (1953) the estuary was still expanding as the channels deepened and the tidal flats increased. With the construction...

Many sand spits are morphodynamically complex cases that are hard to quantify. Therefore, most case studies on sand spits in a specific type of environment, are descriptive or even non-existent. As is the case for spits in low-energy lake environments, like the two spits at the Marker Wadden islands. Because quantification is necessary for spits...

Nature-based initiatives have emerged as potential solutions to problems caused by saltwater intrusion in deltas found globally, but their successful implementation is enabled partly by a multi-stakeholder approach. The latter involves managing several parallel stakeholder objectives, which usually requires quantitative knowledge to understand...

The coastal area provides important services such as valuable habitats for wildlife, resources for regional development, and buffer zones for the land against natural disasters such as storm surges. But these narrow coastal areas experience pressure from both land and ocean side. In order to regulate sustainable coastal development, protect...

Coastal flood risk is expected to increase over the 21st century as a result of climate change and economic growth, which makes low-lying regions especially vulnerable. Global screening techniques are needed for a more widespread use of NBS in these flood prone coastal regions. This research expands on the current assessments done by developing...

In the past decades, beach nourishments have been widely applied along the coast of the Netherlands. Different studies on beach nourishment have been conducted over the years. Most of these studies regard the design, execution method, morpho- and hydrodynamic behaviour, and ecological impact. However, the relationship between the design aspects...

The Noordstrand of the Marker Wadden has been subject to much more erosion than expected. From our current understanding of this low-energy system we cannot explain what has been the cause of this. The goal of this thesis is to create a better understanding of the different processes responsible for the development of this non-equilibrium beach...

A significant part of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Dutch have protected their land against seawater since the 10th century. Nowadays, the Netherlands is protected by 3800 km of primary flood defences. Since the Flood Defences Act was included in the Dutch law in 1996, all flood defences are tested against the national safety...

Offshore wind farms are being built at an unprecedented pace in the North Sea. The Dutch government is aiming for a CO2 neutral energy supply by 2050 and vast cost reductions have turned (offshore) wind energy into a worthy competitor for other (green) energy sources. Most of the planned wind farms in the Dutch North Sea are located in areas...

The lower Ems river suffers from hyper-turbid conditions. These conditions are caused by channel deepening over the last 50 years, resulting in an asymmetrical tidal wave. This asymmetry has resulted in an increased<br/>import of sediment into the Ems river. Recently some effort has gone into determining whether or not the local tidal barrier ...

Key points:- Pre-closure salinity intrusion into Haringvliet-Hollands Diep is known to have reached Biesbosch National Park at flood tide. Post-Delta21 salinity intrusion is projected to be less extensive than pre-closure. Maximum intrusion is estimated to reach the westernmost Moerdijk ports mainly due to diminished tidal...

In recent years, nature-based solutions have gained recognition for their capacity to reduce flood hazard on coastal communities. These coastal threats range from waves and tides, to future storm variability and predicted sea level rise. Vegetated foreshores are one of the measures that fall under this palette of solutions, and are the focus of...

The Engineering Office of the municipality of Amsterdam is developing six man-made islands in the IJmeer. One of the last islands will be Buiteneiland. The location and orientation of Buiteneiland is been agreed when IJburg was designed. The area of interest of this study is the land-water transition at the east side of the island. The IJmeer's...

This report investigates the long-term morphological changes caused by the DELTA 21 project at the northern side, including the large scale morphological development with Delft3D model and at local scale the coastline deformation with UNIBEST-CL model. The necessity of the layout design improvement of DELTA 21 is analyzed by comparing different...

The Houtribdijk is a dike intersecting the IJsselmeer and Markermeer, and is partly reinforced by the construction of sandy shores. The sand eliminates the wave loads before they can reach the levee. Making use of sandy shores as flood protection in a freshwater lake environment is unique. The main goal of this thesis was to find the causes of...
