Kok, M. (author)
Risk-informed decision-making needs methods for assessing flood risk, and often the flooding probability and the consequences of floods (such as economic damage and fatalities) play an important role in the risk assessment. Also, measures to reduce the flood risk need to be formulated, in order to make a risk-informed decision, whether to...

This chapter evaluated the educational effects of an international integrative research education program by analyzing the survey of participating students of the NSF PIRE CFRR Program. The survey was conducted from 2016 to 2019, before and after the 2-week research field trip in the Netherlands. The results show that a problem- and place...

In several coastal regions around the world, movable storm surge barriers have been implemented to protect against flooding induced by storm surges and waves. These barriers often form an integral part of the coastal defense system. In urban deltas, they are mostly intended to protect urban and industrial interests, while providing access for...

In the field of flood risk reduction, comparative international work is rare. Even more so are book-length treatments that look not only across international boundaries, but disciplines as well. Coastal Flood Risk Reduction does just that and more. This book is the most systematic, integrated, and detailed study of flooding ever produced...

International integrative research and education programs that address societal challenges such as flood risk can provide excellent out-of-class learning experiences for students by encouraging them to go beyond their own disciplines and tackle problems collaboratively with other students from various backgrounds. In recognition of the...

Spatial design integrates social, cultural, economic, and political perspectives with natural site conditions and man-made construction to plan for sustainable urban development. The current flood-risk-related challenges induced by climate change place pressure on designing cities in which both natural and man-made conditions can be imbalanced....

In recent years, spatial planning and flood risk management (FRM) have been further coupled, thuscreating opportunities to incorporate water management measures in urban construction/reconstructionand landscaping. In addition, it is essential to find more than just technicalsolutions to potential flooding...

Over the ages delta areas have greatly benefitted their inhabitants. They generally provide fertile soils, rich fishing grounds and easy water transport, which facilitates trade. These natural resources stimulated population growth and made deltas densely populated areas. The threat of flooding by storm surges at...

Katwijk is a small coastal town located at the old mouth of the River Rhine and along the North Sea. The national flood safety inspection of the coastal area demonstrated the need for the construction of a new sea dike to protect some 4000 people living in the city centre. The dune-covered coastline near the town...

The very existence of the Netherlands and its prosperity is tightly linked to the provision of sufficient and reliable flood protection. Flood risk can change, as it is influenced by continually changing environmental and socio-economic factors. In such a dynamic situation, maintaining sufficient safety requires...

The dike reinforcement project Kinderdijk – Schoonhovenseveer (KIS) is part of the Lekdijk, a primary flooddefense that directly protects two major polders in its hinterland fromflooding by the Rhine: the Alblasserwaard and the Vijfheerenlanden polders. Theinitial expansion of local villages (in the Middle Ages)...

The large-scale deployment and maintenance of infrastructure is time consuming and expensive. Over time, with changing demands and threats, these artifacts need replacement, upgrades or removal. Designing these objects assuming a fixed life or for perpetuity, neglects the reality of mutability of our built...

Multifunctional flood defenses combine several functions into a single system. Therefore, several disciplines need to be combined to design such complex systems. An “integrated design” is a collaborative method that combines several disciplines for designing systems or structures, emphasizing a ‘holistic’...

Flood risk reduction aims to minimize losses in low-lying areas. One of the ways to reduce flood risks is to protect land by means of flood defenses. The Netherlands has a long tradition of flood protection and, therefore, a wide variety of technical reports written and guidelines developed for designing and...
