Although mangrove forests have proven to contribute to wave dissipation significantly, these ecosystem are threatened mainly by the expanding aquaculture. International or nationwide applied greenbelt policies are often used for the preservation of the mangroves and hence the flood hazard reduction, without taking local (hydrodynamic) conditions...

Various flood protection measures are studied across the globe, and nature-friendly and environmentally resilient methods are gaining more attention. As part of the building with nature initiative, the project BE SAFE (Bio-Engineering for SAFEty) studies the effects of a vegetated foreshore as a flood protection measure which is found to be very...

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...

In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

As human beings are becoming more and more aware of importance of the environment, resorts to clean energy have provoked great interest for the past decades. As a sort of clean power, wind has been widely considered as an ideal energy source to generate electricity. That is why the offshore wind farm plans have been drawn up, specifically in...

De ecologische kwaliteit van het Markermeer is de laatste decennia sterk achteruit gegaan. De oorzaak hiervan is dat door de afsluiting van het Markermeer met de Houtribdijk een ondiep meer is ontstaan met een bodem van klei waarin een dynamische sliblaag aanwezig is. Al bij lage windsnelheden ontstaan golven die erosie van deze sliblaag...
