The topic of this thesis project is to use the particle-tracking framework to study salt intrusion.<br/>This project was proposed by Deltares and is a small part of the SALTISolutions project, that attempts to build a digital twin model of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. From a mathematical perspective, the particle-tracking framework is inspired by the...

In the realm of fluid dynamics and particle transport, the control of particle trajectories represents a formidable challenge. It would be useful to be able to optimally navigate an oceanographic float from one pre-set location to another by solely changing its buoyancy. In this thesis, a first step in discovering whether this is possible and...

Ocean currents play a crucial role in many scientific and industrial applications. Contemporary measurement techniques are limited in spatial coverage or spatial resolution. This study presents a proof-of-concept for a new measurement principle that merges optical satellite imagery of Kelvin wakes with data from the Automatic Identification...

Groundwater is an essential ingredient in farming, knowledge about how this is expected to change over time can help farmers improve yields and save water. Predictions about the groundwater level can be made using a mathematical model. This model takes into account the precipitation and evaporation, the flux towards a deeper aquifer and flux to...

In recent years many automatic differentiable programming frameworks have been developed in which numerical programs can be differentiated through automatic differentiation (AD). Examples of these frameworks are Theano, TensorFlow and Pytorch. These frameworks are widely used in Machine Learning. AD also finds applications in the field of...

In the ocean resides a large amount of plastic. This has severe environmental consequences for the oceans. To be able to clean up all this plastic the location of the plastic is needed. A lot of times plastic is cleaned up at the source, but to clean up here this location needs to be known. However, what if the start location is not known and...

This thesis introduces a new algorithm for optimising shipping routes within a dredging project. Highly dynamic and time-dependent hydrodynamic features influence shipping routes. Due to the complex interactions between the horizontal tide, vertical tide, stratifying forces, wind-driven forces, and limited water-depth, shipping routes were...

Processes occurring in the near-shore region operates on a small spatial and temporal scale. Simulations of these processes have long posed challenges for computational science, and to have accurate representations require a higher resolution. This results in computationally expensive models. This project aimed to investigate the possibility of...

Globally, at each river mouth freshwater is discharged to coastal waters. At each river mouth a freshwater plume is formed. These fresh water plumes are also known as the regions of freshwater influence (or ROFI’s). Furthermore, the freshwater plume will affect local coastal water levels. In order to improve global flood forecasting, research on...

Plastic pollution is a big problem all over the world. Every year more plastic is produced, a lot of plastic litter is mismanaged and enters the ocean. It’s important to know where these plastics accumulate. With this information the problem can be quantified and the plastic litter can be cleaned up. In this project, the transport of micro...

Waves in coastal waters play a role in forecasting storm conditions, as boundary conditions for the assessment of coastal risk and in coastal structure design. Assessment of their impact can be made through numerical modeling. In a forecasting context, the CPU time of the wave model is decisive in its suitability. Recent years wave model...

Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) is a well established model order reduction technique, however its efficiency is limited for advection dominated model. In this report, we explore a modified proper orthogonal decomposition procedure with patterns in time instead of the usual patterns in space. This modified procedure is more suitable for...

In this master thesis the residual circulation in the North Sea is investigated. It has been shown that the numerical models used in this thesis (DCSMv5 and DCSMv6) give a rather low representation of the actual circulation pattern in the North Sea. The dominating forces which cause residual currents in the North Sea are the tidal forcings,...

This thesis is about the beginning of a global tide model in DFlow-FM, a project by Deltares. The first focus lay on finding the best grid that can be used for this model. We tried to grids, a rotated lat-lon grid and a squarely grid with local refinement. After calculating the RMS-value it was found that the local refined grid gave the best...
