Beach erosion, the loss of sand from a beach due to longshore and/or cross-shore sediment transport mechanisms, is a challenging problem. In order to stabilize the beach and to slow down the rate of beach erosion, the construction of hard hydraulic structures is a traditional option. Groins are one of the oldest man-made hydraulic structures...

Large shallow lakes plays a significant role in the rapid urbanization process. A series of problems have occurred due to urbanization including water quality degradation, flood intensity increase, ecological and environmental issues etc. One of the most important threat comes from eutrophication, as it deteriorates water quality, introduces...

Coastal retreat problems occur in many deltas over the world. Coastal features are not constant over time and are affected by sea level rise, river runoff, sediment supply, wave and tidal energy, underlying geology and climate. In addition, human activities profoundly influence the coastal processes as a result of changing natural patterns of...

This thesis investigates the behaviour of the often used point-wise skill score, the MSESSini a.k.a. BSS, and develops new error metrics that, as opposed to point-wise metrics, take the spatial structure of morphological patterns into account. The...

Henriquez, M. (author)
This thesis is about the hydrodynamic processes that occur when a nearshore sandbar migrates towards the shore driven by the waves. These processes are relevant because process-based morphological models have difficulty simulating coastal accretion events in contrast to erosion events. Simulating accretion events is important for engineering...

Sand is the second-most used natural resource behind water and will be under increasingly high demand in coming decades. One of the reasons for this is that, worldwide, sand is more and more applied to counteract beach erosion.<br/>This thesis presents new techniques in remote sensing and numerical modelling to better understand beach erosion...

This study explores the influence of the wave characteristics on the attenuation process of waves through coastal mangroves, which are threatened by the coastal mangrove squeeze phenomenon. Coastal mangrove squeeze is the phenomenon where coastal regions, even when sediment availability is sufficient, are eroding due to a lack of accommodation...

Huisman, B.J.A. (author)
Increasingly large sand nourishments are used for the maintenance of sandy coasts around the world. There is, however, still very limited understanding of their behaviour (i.e. redistribution) and effects on the marine environment. This PhD thesis explores the morphological reshaping of shoreface nourishments (i.e. long bunds of sand placed at...

The main objective of this study is to unravel the physical processes that control typical coastal systems in Central Vietnam while challenged by the fact that it is a data limited environment. Inlets and bays are the typical coastal system along the central coast of Vietnam. These coastal systems are strongly influenced by tropical monsoon...

This thesis examines the effects of the stratified tidal flow on the morphodynamics of the Dutch inner shelf. The south portion of the Dutch inner shelf is strongly influenced by the Rhine River ROFI (Region Of Freshwater Influence), which is generated by the discharge from the Rhine River through the Rotterdam waterways. Under stratified...

Mangroves are an interesting species of vegetation, surviving and thriving at the interface of land and water, in the inter tidal brackish coastal waters between the mean sea level and mean high water. Mangroves are a highly productive and complex ecosystem, providing numerous services and goods to people and marine environment. Mangroves are...

Radermacher, M. (author)
Artificial sand nourishments are a common measure to mitigate coastal erosion problems. Such nourishments can have an impact on currents and waves near the beach, especially when the nourishment has a large size. As nourished beaches often have a recreational function, these altered wave and current patterns may pose a threat to swimmers. This...

This thesis investigates how selected multivariate probabilistic methods can be adapted for risk analysis and decision making in coastal and offshore environments. In particular, the thesis makes a contribution to decision support tools for risk reduction efforts in coastal environments and to statistical simulation methods for wave conditions....

This thesis explores the nature of aeolian sediment availability and its influence on aeolian sediment transport. The aim is to improve large scale and long term aeolian sediment transport estimates in (nourished) coastal environments. The generally poor performance of aeolian sediment transport models with respect to measurements in coastal...

Walstra, D.J.R. (author)
Nearshore sandbars have a lifetime of many years, during which they exhibit cyclic, offshore directed behaviour with strong alongshore coherence. A bar is generated near the shoreline and grows in height and width while migrating offshore, before finally decaying at the seaward limit of the surf zone. It may take 10 to 15 years for a bar to...

Beach erosion is a chronic problem in the southeast coast of the State of Florida, where Delray Beach is located. To mitigate increasing erosion problems (subsequent) beach nourishment projects were constructed along the entire sandy coast of the state of Florida. At Delray Beach, the beach was nourished 7 times since 1973 using approximately 5...

A large proportion of the world population lives in the coastal zone, which is facing a variety of natural and anthropogenic impacts on its evolution. A better understanding of coastal evolution can be obtained when it is based on an accurate knowledge of coastal dynamics. This thesis aims to study the long-term (hundreds of years) coastal...

The Jiangsu coast is located in eastern China bordering the South Yellow Sea. It is strongly affected by the semi-diurnal tides. Both the tidal range and the tidal current vary greatly in space due to local tidal wave systems and morphologies. The radial tidal current pattern identified at the central coast is suggested to play a primary role in...

Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) is one of the main drivers of beach morphology. It works at temporal scales ranging from hours to centuries and at spatial scales ranging from tens of meters to hundreds of kilometres. Episodic, large LST rates can result in important physical impacts such as inlet closure, rapid build-up of ebb/flood shoals,...

Tidal flat landscape formation and evolution are closely related to the biotic and abiotic processes that take place in the intertidal environments. Extensive studies have been carried out on the relevant agents such as hydrodynamics, sediment transport and the related ecosystem (vegetation and benthic communities) dynamics. However, the...
