This study focuses on the infragravity (IG) waves at 5 measurement sites (Brouwershavense Gat 2 (BG2), Oosterschelde 4 (OS4), Cadzand, Hansweert and Bath) in the Scheldt region, examining their characteristics in these waters as well as to what extent they can be modelled using SWAN (Simulating WAves Nearshore). To facilitate this, data...

Mangrove forests are important wetland ecosystems that inhabit intertidal zones within tropical and sub-tropical latitudes. They offer a diverse array of ecosystem services, including coastal protection and carbon sequestration. Despite their significance, global mangrove cover has declined in recent decades, prompting various restoration...

Sand wave is one of the large-scale seabed morphological features with a typical wave height of metres and a wavelength of hundreds of metres. Its mobile nature causes a nuisance to offshore infrastructure and marine transport. Pre-sweeping is a construction procedure commonly involved in submarine utilities installation to dredge existing sand...

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...

Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

The coastal safety of the dunes are of high importance for low laying countries (Chen et al., 2017). This is especially true for the Netherlands as it is used officially as a safety measure against flooding from extreme weather since 1984 (Rijkswaterstaat, 1989). As of current 1D modelling of the waves is an acceptable method for the Dutch coast...

The Building with Nature approach has been gaining ground in hydraulic engineering, increasing the importance of understanding the cross-shore morphodynamic processes. The intertidal zone, where marine and aeolian processes come together, is an important link in the transport of sediment from the sea towards the dunes. The grain size...

The coastline of Demak, Indonesia has been eroded during the last 15 years. To restore the natural coastal protection which existed out of mangroves forest, permeable dams, consisting of bamboo poles with a brushwood filling, have been built to attenuate the waves and facilitate sedimentation behind the dams and thus creating a habitat for...

In future decades, coasts will be exposed to increasing risks because of climate change and sea level rise, which poses an increased threat of coastal inundation, erosion and ecosystem loss. The natural variability of coasts can make it difficult to identify these impacts. Most beaches worldwide show evidence of recent erosion. Sea level rise is...

For both developed and developing nations, coastal zones form an attractive location for urban settlements. With the expected increase in the earth’s population, coastal areas will experience a further increase of inhabitants. Floating city development could therefore be an interesting alternative for land-based urban expansion on land [41]....

Recent analysis on measurements in the North Sea has shown a large amount of wave energy ranging in infragravity bands in the North Sea during storm events. To better understand the generation and propagation of free infragravity waves, the SWAN model is used to inspect the infragravity wave pattern, the infragravity wave origins, and the...

Recent studies have shown that flood risk contributes to a major part of the total risk caused by natural hazards in Western Europe. Especially in the United Kingdom, flood risk has been identified as a substantial threat, which is likely to continue to grow due to (coastal) urbanisation, sea level rise and climate change. A separate study has...

Large morphological features, so-called sand ridges, with an average height and length in the order of 10 meters and 3 kilometers respectively are located at future offshore wind farm locations in the Dutch North Sea. Recent literature, considering relatively deep water conditions (kh 1, with k the wave number and h the water depth), has shown...

This report presents the methodology and findings of a study on the impacts of free long waves on dune erosion predictions in XBeach. In this paper a distinction is made between two types of infragravity waves: bound infragravity waves and free infragravity waves. Bound infragravity waves are generated by short-wave group forcings and are bound...

Climate change puts under pressure existing and future coastal interventions. Growing threats like sea-level rise and intensity of storms require solutions to be adaptable and resilient. Nature-based solutions have shown to tackle these challenges while providing social, environmental, and economic benefits. The role of vegetation in coastal...

As a result of the unabated growth in plastic usage worldwide, their abundance in the marine environment has steadily increased over the last few decades. Nowadays, plastic litter is observed across all oceans and shores. Due to their wide spread and adverse effects on ecology, economy and potentially human health, plastic pollution has been...

Mineral oil spills at sea can have many negative consequences. For both preventive and responsive purposes, it is essential to accurately forecast oil spill evolution. Shear diffusion (in this context, i.e. the combined effect of vertical mixing and differentiated horizontal advection of mass) determines for a significant part the evolution of...

Rapid climate change and the corresponding estimated sea level rise can affect the performance of the coastal defense structures such as breakwaters, seawalls, and dikes. In order to improve these coastal defenses, a detailed understanding of the processes which contribute to wave run-up and overtopping over the coastal defenses needs to be...

Many tropical coastlines are fronted by coral reefs and are increasingly exposed to wave attack and wave-driven marine flooding. This problem demands immediate attention as safe habitability of and social and economic activity in reef-lined coastal regions are under serious threat, while these regions are known to have some of the world’s...

Demak is a regency within the province of Central Java, Indonesia, with a mud-mangrove coast bordering the Java Sea. The region is facing a rapid retreat of the coastline, threatening the livelihood of a large part of the population. The main cause of the erosion is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves. This has disturbed the...
