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...

To help to provide a desperately needed coastal protection strategy for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam this research looks into the possibilities for natural and sustainable coastal defence systems, including mangroves and active sediment management, such as a nourishment. The coastline of the Mekong Delta suffers from severe erosion and mangrove...

South of Vancouver, Canada, at the western front of the Fraser Delta lies Sturgeon Bank. The marsh on this intertidal area supports migratory birds and salmon, and it is part of the coastal protection of the city of Richmond. The marsh has faced severe recession of up to 500 m between 1989 – 2011 after having been stable for over 50 years. This...

Coastal protection in the Mekong Delta is of paramount importance. The low-lying coastal area has always been vulnerable to flooding by extreme events, but the coastal erosion and consequent land losses have increased to alarming magnitude in the most recent years. This MSc thesis aims to pro- vide insight in the optimal protection strategy for...

Wave climate in harbours determines for a significant part the efficiency of harbour operations. A good prediction of the hydrodynamics is therefore regarded as indispensable, which is often done by means of advanced numerical modelling. This study is a part of the Joint Industry Project XBeach. The goal of this research is to determine the...

The objective of this research is to explore the feasibility of detecting sandy beaches at a high spatial level, using satellite images. A pixel-based classification scheme of the four classes selected (sand, mud, vegetation and gravel) is conducted, using Landsat 8 Top-of-Atmosphere images (years 2014 and 2015) and Google Earth Engine. Moreover...

To counteract relative sea level rise, Rijkswaterstaat nourishes the Dutch coast with sand. This sand spreads out over the shoreface zone, beach and dunes. One of the nourishment types is the shoreface nourishment. In this thesis, data of historical shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast is analysed to find the factors that influence this...

The objective of this research is to make a general framework, that when run through one can find a suitable measure to make a particular area in Myanmar flood proof. Myanmar suffers from yearly floods that have a huge impact on the population. Making an area flood proof is therefore one of the objectives of the civilian government. In this...

Coastal zones are extensively used by humans for work, living and recreation. About three billion people live and work within a couple of hundred kilometers from a coastline. In addition the coast is an important breeding zone for marine species. This is also the case at Lake Bardawil. Lake Bardawil is a relatively large lake on the north-west...

Although mangrove forests have proven to contribute to wave dissipation significantly, these ecosystem are threatened mainly by the expanding aquaculture. International or nationwide applied greenbelt policies are often used for the preservation of the mangroves and hence the flood hazard reduction, without taking local (hydrodynamic) conditions...

One of the most economically and ecologically important issues related to coastal engineering is the preservation of the coastal areas. The mean to do so, is the good understanding of the sediment transport mechanisms that are involved in the transformation of coasts. In order to protect these valuable areas, man-made structures have been...

Postma, M.G. (author)
This study describes the stability of rock on a mild slope (e.g. milder than 1:6) under wave loading. This is done because an increasing number of situations occur where mild foreshores are protected from the wave and currents. The empirical stability formula, designed by VAN DER MEER [1988], is not valid for these kind of slopes. Nonetheless,...

This thesis investigates the governing generating mechanisms, shoaling and reflection behaviour of infra-gravity waves on a mild-sloping, macro-tidal, rocky shore platform. The methods comprise among others, field data analysis of the Lilstock platform, numerical modelling using a calibrated XBeach model and a cross-correlation analysis to...

Natural reefs are important habitats for a wide range of species. Furthermore, they attenuate waves and thereby protect the leeside, functioning as coastal protection. Many reefs are however eroding or degraded, leading to a loss of these ecosystem services. Artificial reefs can reverse this negative trend. The artificial reefs in this context...

The Sand Motor is a unique and dynamic solution for coastal erosion, aimed at distributing the nourished sand along the Delfland coast. Besides enhancing coastal protection, the Sand Motor has been designed to also provide opportunities for recreation and nature development. The contributions of ecosystems to human well-being, that arise from...

Relative sea level rise and climate change, but also the migration of the growing world population to the coast, continuously increase the pressure on the coastal system. In combination with the increased awareness for sustainability, the interests in the coastal zone become integrated and complex. Integrated Coastal ZoneManagement (ICZM)...

This study is about the effect of outer-delta bottom topographies adaptations on salt water intrusion in estuaries. An increase in salt water intrusion is considered as problematic in a lot of estuaries in the world. Various solutions are developed in the past to reduce salt water intrusion. These solutions have also negative side effects. An...

On the south-west coast of Namibia, diamonds were trapped during the Quaternary on bedrock platforms and in bedrock gullies. These were formed by differential erosion due to wave action. The diamonds originated from Kimberlite diamond pipes within the catchment area of the Orange River in South-Africa and Botswana. This river eroded the diamonds...
