To protect the hinterland, flood defences are often located on the border between water and land. This same border however is also an attractive place to live, which may hamper improvement of flood protections. Closing off a tidal (river) system, especially in case of little discharge, may in this case be a logical consideration. This would...

In this study, a numerical model (XBeach-vegetation) and statistical Bayesian Network (Netica) was developed for the simulation and quantification of wave attenuation for various combinations of global salt marsh characteristics and extreme hydraulic conditions. The purpose of this modeling effort was to test the ability of the numerical model...

Aquatic vegetation attenuates local currents, dampens wave energy and promotes sedimentation. Its function as shoreline defence has gained strong interest in the recent years, since it may offer sustainable and cost-effective solutions to coastal protection problems. Predictions of wave dissipation by macrophytes require understanding of the...
