The People's Republic of China experienced large socio-economic development over the last decades, which was mainly concentrated in coastal regions. Jiangsu Province is among these regions, which shows large socio-economic differences between north and south. The Chinese Central Government has allocated Binhai County as a new coastal development...

It has been determined that the plastic waste load in the Petanu river (Bali, Indonesia) can be as high as 2015.5 kg/day in the beginning of the rainy season. To restore the ecosystem and protect human livelihood this load should be reduced drastically. The enormous pollution rate is largely due to the massive amounts of mismanaged (plastic)...

As a low-lying city, Shanghai faces threats from typhoon and spring tide under the condition of climate change and land subsidence. With high water level at the toe, the sea embankment is likely to be overtopped and breached, finally resulting in inundation inland.  The objective of this research is to study climate change...

The world's coasts are at risk: an estimated 24% of the world's beaches are eroding. Extreme events such as storms continuously threaten the coastal region and pose a serious risk of coastal flooding. Under the influence of climate change, the seaward pressures are only expected to increase. Sea level rise is accelerating, storm intensities and...

Research on the physical, ecological and environmental processes in the coastal zone often rely on the availability of accurate bathymetric information. The traditional method to acquire these data is by conducting depth soundings from a vessel, which is a very accurate way for measuring bottom elevations in all kinds of water, but has as a...

Wave overtopping is responsible for many dike failures, dike breaches and severe flooding. The erosion resistance of dikes to overtopping waves is determined by the strength of the grass cover. Therefore, a thorough understanding of the erosion resistance of grass covers is desired to enable a good and effective dike management. In the existing...

Due to sea level rise and subsidence of land, coastal erosion is a serious problem in the Netherlands. And nourishments are common solutions to mitigate coastal erosion. Over the last decades, many studies have been focusing on individual nourishment performance to help us increase understanding of it. However, it is still not clear for us how...

The Bollen van de Ooster, in this report referred to as the Ooster, is a sand bar in the outer delta of the Grevelingen. The Ooster is separated from the coast by a relatively deep channel, called the Schaar. Closure of the Grevelingen in 1971, with the construction of the Brouwersdam, initiated vast changes in morphology. Damming of the estuary...

The influence of beach buildings on coastal dune development is still largely unknown, and it could pose a risk to the functionalities coastal dunes provide. The objectives of this research are covered by the main research question: What is the influence of specific types of beach buildings on aeolian coastal dune development and what are...

When designing hydraulic structures, engineers follow a structured and predetermined set of design phases, referred to as the design process. Within this process, the preliminary design phase is a highly iterative process, which requires many calculations. From these calculations many different initial designs of the structure are derived....

Every year hundreds of thousands of people are affected by natural disasters that occur due to various physical phenomenon. They include earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and hurricanes. In this research the focus is on hurricane events and the impact they have on a community. The ability for a community to bounce back is defined by...

The Xbloc<sup>Plus</sup> (referred to as Xbloc+) is a new, uniformly placed single layer armour unit, developed by Delta Marine Consultants (BAM Infraconsult). Although a breakwater armour layer with Xbloc<sup>Plus</sup> combines material saving and easy placement with increased stability, the transition between the armour layer and the crest is...

OpenFOAM allowed the author to simulate a large number of scenarios in which the influences of cross-shore profile shape, cobble porosity, cobble diameter and layer thickness on wave overtopping were examined. Four validation runs and six simulations to map the sensitivity are compared with data from two physical experiments conducted in the...

Including vegetation in flood defense systems has the potential to be a more cost-effective solution than conventional dike reinforcement measures, as vegetation contains wave damping properties. However, more insight is required on the complex physical processes due to wave-vegetation interaction in order to predict the amount of wave damping....

Bathymetry strongly affects nearshore hydrodynamics that drive sediment transport. However, recent bed level information is not always available, especially not simultaneously resolved in space and time. Time series of radar backscatter images can be used to retrieve bed levels in the intertidal area with the so-called Temporal Waterline...

The coastline of the United States has been threatened by significant erosion for the past decades. A study in 2000 predicted that 25% of the houses located within 150 meters of the shoreline will be destroyed by erosion in 2060. The east coast of the US experiences an average erosion rate of roughly one meter per year. Moreover, the Atlantic...

After more than 85 years, the iconic Afsluitdijk is in need of a reinforcement. During the latest safety assessment of Rijkswaterstaat the dike did not meet the standards at two components; the amount of wave overtopping (&gt;10 l/m/s) and armour stability. This research goes into detail about the overtopping on the Afsluitdijk. In the new...

Lagoons are connected to the sea by the presence of openings along their barriers. These openings, also known as tidal inlets, can either be natural or man-made and they highly determine the hydrodynamics within the lagoon system. Tidal inlet systems are found worldwide, and many of them are difficult to be understood due to their complex...

Evolution of coastline position under the influence of natural and anthropogenic processes is directly linked to the development of seaside societies. In the context of coastal zone management, process-based morphodynamic models are often used topredict coastline evolution and support the decision-making process...

To combat the emission of greenhouse gasses and the corresponding climate change, emission reduction goals have been established in the recent Paris Agreement. In order to meet these reduction goals and minimise the global average temperature increase, implementation of renewable energy sources is critical. Wind energy is one of the fastest...
