Estuaries support a unique hydrodynamic system due to the fresh water flowing into a salt water sea. This leads to stratification which can significantly alter internal tidal dynamics in the estuary. A model has been developed by Winant (2010) to describe the water motions of a two-layer system in tidal basin. The aim of this thesis is provide...

In this thesis the hydrodynamic behaviour of an idealised relatively short tidal estuary is studied using a cross-sectionally averaged model, i.e. a one dimensional model. The geometry of the estuary is simplified and only the hydrodynamic processes are considered. This model is used to gain insight in the behaviour of currents and water levels...

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...

Tidal inlet systems are often highly valuable and sometimes even unique ecosystems. However, field measurements show that tidal inlet systems are sensitive to changing exogenous conditions, such as rising sea levels. This thesis aims to investigate to what extent the adjacent sea influences the stability and equilibrium state of the tidal inlet....

Using an idealized width-averaged model, the influence of spring-neap cycles on the transport and trapping of suspended fine sediment in tide-dominated estuaries is investigated. To this end we introduce a multiple time scale expansion. This provides a mathematically sound argument for treating the fast ebb-flood cycle and the slow spring-neap...

Over time, the width-averaged depth of estuaries changes due to a complex interaction of hydrodynamics and suspended sediment transport. In many estuaries one specic location with a suspended sediment concentration (SSC) higher than in the sea or in the upstream river, is found, which is called sediment<br/>trapping. The location of the maximum...
