Phenomena like sea level rise, global warming and erosion together contribute to increasing flood risk in vulnerable coastal areas. As this flood risk increases, initiatives to mitigate the effects of climate change in the coastal zone are also increasingly sought. During recent years, the view that these measures should be circular has gained...

This study aims to get an insight into the particle trajectories that microplastics follow, after having been released in the North Sea.<br/><br/>For the computations daily-mean values of the surface currents are used, retrieved from the Mercator global ocean model. 2D particles trajectories are simulated for a year, with a 3rd party Python...

The Rhine Region of Fresh Water Influence (ROFI) is a shallow frictional river plume in front of the Dutch coast. Each tidal cycle a new tidal plume front with fresh-water is released. Recently, internal gravity waves have been observed in this plume. Using a Froude number analysis, support for the internal wave generation mechanism by a tidal...

Coastal bays in the Caribbean accommodate different marine ecosystems, including seagrass meadows and coral reefs, which provide important ecosystem services. However, these marine ecosystems are endangered. Seagrass ecosystems have a key role in coastal bays, but despite their alarming rates of loss, they receive little attention compared to...

This thesis introduces a new algorithm for optimising shipping routes within a dredging project. Highly dynamic and time-dependent hydrodynamic features influence shipping routes. Due to the complex interactions between the horizontal tide, vertical tide, stratifying forces, wind-driven forces, and limited water-depth, shipping routes were...

This Master thesis presents an improved model for the transport of fine suspended sediment (SPM) in the Rhine region of fresh water influence (ROFI) and in the Port of Rotterdam. It is known that the transport of SPM in the Rotterdam harbor depends on marine as well as fluvial processes. SPM transport inside the harbor has been modelled in the...

In this report a first assessment is made of the impact of hurricanes on Saint Martin. Two bays at the east coast of Saint Martin, Baie Orientale and Baie de L'Embouchure, are studied under the conditions of hurricane Irma and Maria, which both have passed over in September 2017. During these hurricanes the bays were exposed to large wind speeds...

Shallow bays in the Caribbean, like Baie Orientale and Baie de L'Embouchure in Saint Martin, are often sheltered by coral reefs and covered by seagrass meadows. They provide valuable services as tourism and coastal protection. The ecosystems are linked through biological, chemical and physical processes. But they are under pressure due to sea...

Climate models predict increased Arctic precipitation and subsequent Arctic freshening as a response to increased green house gas concentrations. Eulerian studies have shown that with increased Arctic precipitation AMOC (Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation) strength decreases. Decrease in AMOC strength comes with a decreased...

Globally, at each river mouth freshwater is discharged to coastal waters. At each river mouth a freshwater plume is formed. These fresh water plumes are also known as the regions of freshwater influence (or ROFI’s). Furthermore, the freshwater plume will affect local coastal water levels. In order to improve global flood forecasting, research on...

This study aims for a better understanding of the sediment pathways in San Francisco South Bay (South Bay). Many issues relevant to the Bay Area community such as shipping, recreational and commercial fishing, habitat restoration, human health, and environmental water quality are reliant on understanding sediment pathways (McKee et al. [2006])....

Four kilometers west of the Norwegian island Fedje, mercury, leaking from the U-864 wreck, has highly polluted a seabed area of approximately 40 000 m2. The bow section of the wreck is located on a stability critical slope of 15 degrees. In 2016, Van Oord used a flexible fall pipe system to install a counter fill to stabilize the wreck and...
