Sand ripples are small (10 cm height) bed forms which occur in the nearshore and surf zone under the impact of both waves and currents. They impact the roughness of the bed used in models of this zone, and contribute to sediment transport. Predictions of their geometry are important to properly model roughness, so correlations between the waves...

To protect the coastal system, nourishment of the coast is nowadays being applied more frequently. Within these coastal systems new elements are often implemented to add value to the design without compromising on the function of the design of the nourishment. One of these possible purposes is the creation of an artificial lagoon. However, to be...

Due to sea level rise and subsidence of land, coastal erosion is a serious problem in the Netherlands. And nourishments are common solutions to mitigate coastal erosion. Over the last decades, many studies have been focusing on individual nourishment performance to help us increase understanding of it. However, it is still not clear for us how...

The coastline of the United States has been threatened by significant erosion for the past decades. A study in 2000 predicted that 25% of the houses located within 150 meters of the shoreline will be destroyed by erosion in 2060. The east coast of the US experiences an average erosion rate of roughly one meter per year. Moreover, the Atlantic...

Introduction and Problem Description: The autonomous nearshore morphodynamics along the Nags Head shoreline are characterized by consistent erosional behavior. The use of shoreface nourishments to counteract this erosion along shorelines has received considerable attention in the past, having the advantage of reduced cost compared to beach...

A mega-feeder nourishment is a concentrated nourishment that disperses over time due to wind, waves, and tide, and as a result ‘feeds’ its adjacent coasts. During the design phase of a nourishment, performance indicators can enable an objective comparison of a mega-feeder nourishment to alternative nourishment strategies, In the case of an...

Decision- and policymakers responsible for the coastal zone aim at combining measures against for instance long-term erosion, with measures that have a positive social, economic impact on the region. Recreational beach usage has a large social economic impact on a region and therefore quantification of the recreational beach usage can provide...

The Netherlands is a country primarily developed on coastal zones. Coastal zones are very important, since they are a source of valuable living and non-living resources for its population, and they also act as a natural protection against floods. Notably, the natural dynamics driven by the sea and the man-made actions on the land change them...
