A managed realignment is the landward relocation of a flood defence to re-establish tidal exchange on formerly reclaimed land. In a managed realignment, the newly formed intertidal area acts together with the realigned dike as a nature-based flood defence system. In this thesis, the focus is on the managed realignment of Perkpolder, a former...

A large part of the Dutch coast, the barrier islands in the Wadden Sea included, would be eroding if the deficit in the total sediment budget was not compensated for through nourishments. Ebb-tidal deltas have an important function within the coastal system that make them of interest for coastal defence as a source and transport path for sand to...

Due to climate change, temperatures are rising worldwide resulting in sea level rise, higher evaporation and possible changes in precipitation patterns. These effects of climate change influence salt intrusion, particularly by affecting the freshwater supply. In The Gambia also a planned hydropower dam and possibly future irrigation development...

Predictions of the morphology of coastal areas are used to make decisions on coastal defence and nature conservation. To predict this morphology, simulations made by morphological models are used. To base decisions on this morphology predictions, we want the uncertainties in these predictions to be small. The goal of this research is to get a...

Schiermonnikoog is a Dutch barrier island with wide beaches and dunes which are both of importance for recreation as for safety. However, after decades of coastal accretion, in the last years, a strong coastline retreat is observed at the island head in the northwest. In tidal inlets, various forcing conditions of tides, waves, winds and...

Over the last decades, the People’s Republic of China experience large economic development, which have led to severe shortages of usable land. To counteract this, the Chinese central government promoted the development of coastal provinces by reclaiming large sections of coastal zones. One of these regions is Nantong Binhai Park or Tongzhou Bay...

This graduation project investigates the main processes that are influencing the morphological development of the Outer Weser estuary by setting up a process-based model (Delft 3D) and applying it by means of simulating multiple scenarios, each driven by a different forcing. The aim of this project is to gain insight into the causes for the...

The Eastern Scheldt basin is protected by a semi-open storm surge barrier that was completed in 1986. In 2015 a set of five turbines was installed in one of the barrier openings as a pilot for tidal energy extraction. Due to the construction of the barrier, the average tidal range and velocities have significantly decreased throughout the basin...

Sea level rise poses challenges to the tidal inlet systems of the Wadden Sea, including the barrier islands. If no measures are taken, the shorelines of the islands will retreat and the basins may drown. In the Ameland Inlet, the Boschplaat at the eastern tip of Ameland and Bornrif at the western tip of Terschelling are currently shrinking. <br/...
