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...

Coastal regions change continuously due to natural processes. Human activities in coastal regions require a steady environment. Usually the dredging industry is contacted for coastal maintenance. Knowledge about the time development of sediment volume changes in specific regions is necessary for risk assessment in contracting. Nearly a century...

This study has as main objective to `make recommendations for improvement of the objective evaluation of the effectiveness of the Sand Engine'. The Frame of Reference methodology, a tool developed by Van Koningsveld (2003), is used to map the evaluation of effectiveness. This approach is used descriptively as well as prescriptively. A...

By its very nature dredging is an environmental impact, since dredging includes the excavation and/or relocation of sediment in a river, sea or estuary. One of the environmental impacts related to dredging is increased suspended sediment concentration (SSC) levels, forming plumes of sediment. These so called dredge plumes originate from spillage...

Dredge plumes and ecology have become increasingly intertwined in recent history; one of the more prominent reasons behind this is the influence of clouds of fine sediments released in the open water due to dredging (`dredge plumes') on for `sensitive receivers' such as coral, seagrass and mangroves. An Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) in...

Becker, J.H. (author)
Nowadays, the ecological effects of dredge plumes are usually managed based on the precautionary principle. Predictions of suspended sediment levels are made, which have to be compared to thresholds set by the responsible authority. Failing to comply may cause a project to be delayed and thus lead to additional costs. The precautionary principle...

The environmental impacts caused by suspended sediments are an important issue in the environmental impact assessment (EIA) of dredging and reclamation projects. This thesis is restricted to provide insight into the emission of suspended sediment particles due to the release of return water. This water is used to pump dredged material to the...

Hoekstra, R. (author)
In September and October of the year 2009, three sandgroyne nourishments have been executed at the Delfland Coast near the village of Ter Heijde. The nourishments have been executed to restore the sediment buffer in the upper part of the coastal profile. A sandgroyne is a concentrated amount of sediment (200.000m3) artificially nourished from...

Dune evolution on natural and nourished beaches on an engineering timescale is not well understood. Using a study of both literature, and data which has been gathered of the Dutch coast, a new hypothesis regarding the causes of variability in dune evolution is proposed. Following this hypothesis assumptions are made on the basis of which a...

This thesis concentrates on the autonomous behaviour of the breaker bars in front of the Holland coast in the period 1965-2006. The breaker bars in front of the Holland coast show a seaward movement, starting small at the waterline, growing during their seaward motion and dying out at deeper water. A typical profile in front of the Holland coast...
