To improve the socioeconomic situation in the Republic of Nicaragua, the government has decided to strengthen the country’s transport infrastructure by building a port on the Caribbean coast. The future port will be in Bluefields Bay, which can be characterised as a lagoon-shaped estuary. The inner basin is connected to the sea by two tidal...

Bardawil Lagoon is a tidal lagoon situated at the northern coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. It’s two artificial inlets, Boughaz 1 in the West and Boughaz 2 in the East, provide a connection to the Mediterranean Sea. They enable the water bodies to interact and support fish migration. Currently, regular maintenance dredging works are...

Nowadays, conceptual breakwater layout design mostly relies on experience and expert judgement, making it complicated to demonstrate that an economic optimum has been reached. This stresses the need to develop a tool that is able to establish the economically most attractive breakwater layout for a certain set of requirements and site-specific...

The beach adjacent to the Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue and Education Centre is one of the many beaches worldwide suffering from coastline recession. This loss of coast has a negative impact on the environment, local society and ecology. In general, shoreline retreat is caused by sea level rise (SLR) and erosion. The main objective of this research...

Terminos Lagoon is the biggest and ecologically most important fluvial-lagoon system of the southern Gulf of Mexico. Rivers, sea and meteorology all influence the lagoon, variable over the year, resulting in a complex situation. To protect this area, it is crucial to know how different hydrological processes, hydrodynamic processes and spatial...

The reach of the Magdalena River around the city of Barrancabermeja experiences large issues concerning its navigability since the construction of the Yondó Bridge. The purpose of this study is to investigate possible causes of this poor navigability and to come up with an improvement to the current situation. The influence of bars and scour...

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...

Despite several researches about the hydrological and hydrodynamic system of the Guayas region, elementary insight of the total system was lacking. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to create a general overview regarding floods. Besides, basic solutions are proposed for preparing Guayaquil against floods which might be present in the...

An offshore terminal is proposed to be constructed adjacent to the entrance of an Estuary in the Niger Delta. A dredged approach channel of around 10 km long, 250 m wide and to a depth of -14 m LAT is required to allow ships to reach the terminal. From earlier research it is found that high transport rates of fine sediment, in the order of 10...

The distance between marinas along the Dutch coast is large. By building marinas on strategic locations along the coast, sailing times can be reduced significantly. However, building marinas bordering the North Sea is expensive due to the lack of sheltering from waves. Hook of Holland is such a strategic location, located at a distance of 30...

Shore-parallel submerged breakwaters (SBWs) appear as an attractive form of coastal protection. Compared to their emergent counterpart there is no impact on the beach amenity and aesthetics. In addition, there is a possibility for recreational purposes. However, the actual application of SBWs is often discouraged because the complexity of the...

The city of Itajaí is located in the province of Santa Catharina in Brazil. The people of Itajaí have been coping with flood risk for the past decades. During normal conditions the Itajaí-Açu River is a rather calm river that is used for navigation and the harbour area. Recovering from the past two floods in 2008 and 2011 have cost more than...

The objective of this study is to determine for which conditions the bypass capacity is optimized in combination with a limited influence on the navigational function of the harbour. The bypass capacity is defined as the capacity to bypass the sediment around the harbour under the presence of the defined driving forces (i.e. waves and/or tide)....

Property development along the west coast of Barbados has led to an increasing pressure on the coastline as property owners desire to have their residences close to the sea. The addition of new coastal structures including revetments, breakwaters, and groynes, changes the dynamics of the natural littoral system. The sediment transport mechanism...

This master thesis aims to determine the best design option and the feasibility of an artificial sandy beach along the Old Boulevard of Batumi, Georgia. The coastline south of Batumi is affected by erosion problems. The coastal stretch between the port in the north and the Chorokhi River south of Batumi should be protected. In 2010 Alkyon...
