Infrastructure is at risk to climate uncertainty due to a combination of long life spans, complexity of the systems it is embedded in, and the high investment costs often necessary. Current infrastructure planning approaches lose efficacy under deep uncertainty, necessitating new approaches that function better under conditions where the future...

On Saba, an island located in the Caribbean, a new harbour will be constructed. To protect coral reefs in the vicinity from light attenuation and sedimentation, it is important to monitor and predict the turbidity stresses caused by the dredging operation. In the early stages of such projects involving dredging operations, a common approach is...

This study integrates strategic decisions and operational control systems in autonomous shipping. By providing ships with situational information and adding a virtual operator, we show that vessels can make informed choices regarding their route and engine settings. To demonstrate this integration, we developed new components that were tested in...

To reduce computational efforts, surrogate models have been developed for dune erosion prediction. Current surrogate models can describe the relationship between the XBeach input and output (Athanasiou, 2022) and provides a prediction of a morphological indicator based on a parameterized input (profile shape parameters and hydrodynamics). In...

This research focuses on a new system for nourishing the Dutch coast with sand, which utilizes semi-autonomous sailing barges and an electrical crawler to continuously replenish the beach. Yearly, the Dutch government grants contracts to nourish the Dutch coast with volumes around 10.000.000 m$^3$. The Dutch dune coast protects the low part of...

Arribadas, a phenomenon of mass nesting behavior of sea turtles, attract millions of olive ridley turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea) to Playa del Ostional, a nesting beach in Costa Rica. The timing and size of these arribadas are influenced by various environmental factors, including temperature, tides, and moon phase [1]. The sea turtles are...

The dredging industry is a contributor to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions due to the energy-intensive process of dredging and transporting sediment. This industry has to reduce the GHG emissions due to future possible restricting regulations on GHG emissions. The dredging industry is shifting towards more environmentally friendly fuels, but...

Kelp Blue is a company whose top priority is the well-being of the planet. Through the cultivation of giant kelp on offshore farms, they create several sustainable products, new job opportunities in regions where they are needed, enhance biodiversity in the water, and above all, sequester tons of CO2 from the air. The start-up is still in its...

This thesis analyses the importance and application of considering multiple coexisting wave trains in sediment transport predictions.<br/><br/>The wave trains at offshore and nearshore locations are analyzed by wave spectral partitions (Portilla at el., 2009). The temporal variability of consistently occurring wave trains can be analyzed through...

Mangrove is a coastal vegetation type primarily located in the tropical regions between 5 North and 5 South. This coastal vegetation is capable of reducing the force of incoming waves. This is a result of the obstruction created by the roots, stems and canopies against waves to propagate through. Because of this capability, mangrove vegetation...

The Sandwindmill system could decarbonize the Dutch coastal protection whilst harmonizing with the building with nature approach. The system consists of a pipeline connecting an offshore borrow location to a nearshore area, where the mined sediment is discharged. The equipment is powered by wind turbines. As long as the wind blows sufficiently,...

Coastal areas around the world have always been densely populated areas. However, sea-level-rise and an increase in single extreme events due to climate change, threaten the coastal areas and their inhabitants. Governmental organizations, coastal managers and various private parties thrive for better insights into long-term shoreline behavior...
