The behaviour of tidal basins has been predicted using a modelling approach in which a morphological equilibrium for an entire basin was used frequently in the past. Because tidal basins have, to an certain extend, a fractal nature, it is expected that this approach could be used with a morphological equilibrium for subbasins as well.<br/><br/...

Estuarine intertidal flats comprise valuable ecosystems and act as an important sediment source for the adjacent salt marsh systems. However, accelerating sea-level rise threatens the mudflats and associated ecosystems, where the mudflat accretion lag behind sea level rise. A reliable forecast on the morphological developments of the mudflat...

The Wadden Sea is the largest system of tidal flats and barrier islands in the world extending from the northern Dutch coast to the coast of Denmark. Such a large natural area is ofgreat importance to bothhuman beings and ecosystems. Over 10,000 species of flora and fauna are found in theWadden Sea being a perfect habitat due to the relatively...

Ebb-tidal deltas play a key role in the morphology of barrier coastlines and tidal inlet systems as they serve as a natural source of sediment. They are typified by a dynamic morphology that interacts with the adjacent coastlines and sponsors a unique ecological habitat. Under increasing socio-economic, ecological and climate-induced constraints...

The Wadden Sea is a large system of tidal flats and barrier islands. Its individual features have been heavily researched, but sufficient knowledge on the sediment transport patterns on the scale of the Wadden Sea is not yet available. This thesis aims to indicate the dominant sediment transport patterns in the Dutch Wadden Sea and the...

The tidal channels in the Eastern Scheldt basin, are out of equilibrium due to the reduced tidal prism as a consequence of the construction of the Storm Surge Barrier in 1986. An estimated 500 million cubic meters of sediment is required in order to reduce the cross-sectional areas of the tidal channels such that the system reaches a new...

The Gulf of Mottama, located in the southwest of Myanmar, is home to morphologically interesting processes. An entrance of around 100 km wide narrows into a funnel­shaped bay towards the Sittaung River in the north. The entire estuary region is subject to strong dynamic morphological activity which is alleged to be driven by the large tidal...

Burrard Inlet (Vancouver, Canada) has been the home of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation (TWN) for thousands of years. Over the past decades, ongoing erosion has been observed along the shores of Burrard Inlet and the TWN reserve specifically. This leads to loss of land for the TWN community, damage to infrastructure, and exposure of historic sites with...

To exploit its socio-economic functions, engineering measures are regularly applied in estuaries. Estuaries are, however, known to be very complex systems. Stemming from this complexity is the generation of a so-called estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM), which poses great siltation problems to the engineering measures. An engineering measure,...

A study of five European estuaries by Winterwerp and Wang (2013) showed that tidal ranges increased significantly along with the ongoing narrowing and deepening of these estuaries. In addition to an increase in tidal range, a dramatic increase in suspended sediment concentrations has been observed in the Ems (Germany) and Loire (France)...

Estuarine shoals are valuable areas with functions of nature, safety and navigation. It is of utmost importance to understand their underlying physical processes and long-term evolution to achieve protection. The first aim of this report is to determine the impact of wind-waves on long-term morphological development of estuarine shoals. The...

Within the KustGenese 2.0 research project a 5Mm3 pilot nourishment is created on the ebb-tidal delta of Ameland. For this thesis I was involved in the parties; Van den Herik, the contractor who executed the work, Deltares and Rijkswaterstaat. A tool is created to quickly analyse new surveys in combination with the ships deposit data. The tool...

Tidal basins are highly dynamic environments with a complex behavior that is often disturbed by human activities. Considering that tidal dynamics have a direct impact on surrounding engineering infrastructures, adjacent coastlines, nature environment and socio-economic human activities, it is crucial to know the impact of human interventions on...

<b>KEY POINTS:</b><br/>• While the formation of the intertidal shoal Hinderplaat was a direct consequence of a human intervention, its degradation was a natural response of the system to frequent hydrodynamic forcing conditions.<br/><br/>• Tidal currents push the Hinderplaat in offshore direction, but this is counteracted by waves: these...

A strategy for completing a dredging project is called a working method. The goal of a tender study is to find an optimal working method for a specific project. To find the optimal working method, the full range of possible solutions should be investigated. However, the available resources during a tender study are often limited and trends in...

This study aims for a better understanding of the sediment pathways in San Francisco South Bay (South Bay). Many issues relevant to the Bay Area community such as shipping, recreational and commercial fishing, habitat restoration, human health, and environmental water quality are reliant on understanding sediment pathways (McKee et al. [2006])....
