As a result of increased economic development in Colombia, the pressure on the natural system has increased. The export of natural resources through international ports at both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea causes conflicts between infrastructure and the dynamic behaviour of the coastal system. This Master Thesis focusses on the bay...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...

Field studies with in-situ sediment sampling demonstrate the spatial variability in grain size on a sandy beach. However, conventional numerical models that are used to simulate the coastal morphodynamics ignore this variability of sediment grain size and use a uniform grain size distribution of mostly around and assumed fine grain size. This...

This document describes a study into the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on currents which form a risk to bathers. Changes to coastal zone management along the Delfland Coast have given rise to questions on the influence of alongshore bathymetric variability on bather risk. Extensive measurement data is available from two...

The use of the detached offshore submerged breakwater (SBW) for coastal protection has an increasing popularity due to its low aesthetic impact on the natural environment. Submerged breakwaters however have only rarely been adopted and therefore its efficacy remains largely unknown (Ranasinghe et al. 2010). Shoreline erosion has been reported in...

This study investigates wave driven onshore sandbar migration. Observations show that sandbars move onshore during mild wave conditions. Literature describes different potential sediment mechanisms that cause this onshore migration, but the dominant cause is still under debate. The goal of the present study is to determine the dominant sediment...

In many coastal seas, wind-generated waves produce a strong bottom orbital velocity which stirs up sand from the bottom. This process strongly influence sediment transport and bottom evolution. State-of-the-art morphodynamic models traditionally represent the stirring of sand by irregular waves in a highly parametric way. For instance, the...

The maximum wave run-up on a beach is an important factor in the design of coastal protection measures. Therefore, it is desired to predict this run-up based on numerical models. In this thesis, this is done with the use of the model XBeach. Wave run-up consists of multiple components: a swash height, S, and a wave set-up, <η>. The swash height...

In this thesis, the improvement and extension of the North Sea Storm Atlas is studied. The North Sea Storm Atlas is a new statistical approach for rapid flood forecasting in coastal areas. The method is based on a large database of potential weather scenarios. A detailed hydrodynamic numerical model (WAQUA-in-Simona/DCSM98) has been used to...

Coastal inundation models are benefited by timeliness of the predictions, not only when it comes to real-time forecasting but also considering risk assessment studies and sensitivity analysis. Numerical models however are often subjected to a trade-off between accuracy and efficiency, especially when dealing with large geographic scales. In this...

Fire Island has been monitored since Hurricane Sandy (2012). During that period, Fire Island showed recovery (accretion on the island). Behaviour of the recovery is not yet well-known. Main processes during the recovery are also not known. Therefore, the emphasis of this thesis is on the understanding of the main processes of the recovery of...

Wave energy is a promising renewable resource for the extraction of energy. To increase the efficiency of this technology a parabolic reflection wall is located behind a wave farm of heaving point absorber wave energy converters (WECs) to increase the power output of the WEC array by altering the wave field. The WECs are modelled with patches of...

The Oesterdam tidal flat nourishment is a hook-shaped nourishment that was constructed in November 2013 in the Kom area of the Eastern Scheldt. One of the objectives of the nourishment is to increase the design life of the Oesterdam in the face of increasing wave loads due to structural erosion of the intertidal flats. A study is conducted in...

Posidonia oceanica is a flexible subaquatic seagrass species that forms extensive meadows across the Mediterranean Sea. These are considered one of the most valuable ecosystems on Earth. This MSc. thesis examines the role of P. oceanica in protecting the coast from storm impacts. Prior studies are based on flume experiments that focused, almost...

Low-lying tropical islands are highly vulnerable to the effects of sea-level rise and climate change. Most pressing is the threat posed to their fresh water supplies by wave-induced flooding. This thesis attempts to generalize previous site-specific studies of flooding on coral atolls and apply it in a framework that can be used for early...

In this study, a numerical model (XBeach-vegetation) and statistical Bayesian Network (Netica) was developed for the simulation and quantification of wave attenuation for various combinations of global salt marsh characteristics and extreme hydraulic conditions. The purpose of this modeling effort was to test the ability of the numerical model...

A survey dataset taken at the Sand Engine mega-nourishment on the southwest coast of Holland was analyzed in an attempt to locate beach scarps and characterize their development. A beach scarp is defined as a vertical discontinuity in the upper foreshore slope generated through the removal of sediment by natural processes. More specifically,...

The determination of wave penetration in ports is of great importance for the design of coastal structures and for the efficiency of port operations. Nowadays, coastal engineers can make use of numerical models for the assessment of wave climates in ports. Various numerical models exist, including the phase resolving models SWASH (TU Delft) and...

This research investigates approaches to conduct an efficient sensitivity analysis of wave forcing in coastal erosion studies. For this three speed-accuracy trade-offs have been assessed: (i) between the use of a simple and a complex model, (ii) between the use of several methods for conducting a sensitivity analysis, and (iii) between the use...
