In 2014-2015 the coastal stretch between Petten and Camperduin was strengthened by using 35 million m3 of sand. At the seaward side of the Hondbossche & Pettermer sea defence a beach and dune system was built which is called the ‘Hondsbossche Dunes’. The old sea dike has disappeared behind the new dunes and is no longer an active part of the...

Morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and indispensable to predict the effectiveness of (large-scale) sandy interventions. These models enable quantification of the effects on enhanced safety against flooding and on environmental impact over time, based on physical processes such as hydrodynamics and sediment...

Additional thesis - The exchange and transport of sediment between intertidal zone and backshore are subject of ongoing research in order to assess the dynamic behaviour of sandy coastal systems. How the sediment moves in the coastal system is relevant knowledge for e.g. the Dutch coastal nourishment programme. It is a scientific challenge to...

Although shoreface nourishments are an increasingly interesting option for coastal managers to counteract coastal erosion, their design is often highly empirical. A better understanding of the way shoreface nourishments interact with the initial beach profile may help to reduce the degree of empiricism in nourishment design. Literature study has...

In recent years, strange phenomena occurred in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and West Africa: a massive tide of sargassum, brown algae, washed ashore causing considerable damage to the local economy and environment. The sargassum mostly consists of Sargassum Natans and Sargassum Fluitans. Old studies concluded that the sargassum came from the...

The objective of this research is to explore the feasibility of detecting sandy beaches at a high spatial level, using satellite images. A pixel-based classification scheme of the four classes selected (sand, mud, vegetation and gravel) is conducted, using Landsat 8 Top-of-Atmosphere images (years 2014 and 2015) and Google Earth Engine. Moreover...

The objective of this thesis was analyzing and evaluating different sources of wave data. Wave data from two hindcasts, satellite altimetry and wave buoys were compared with each other in order to validate different data sets. These datasets provided to be useful tools in determining the wave climate along the coast of Myanmar.

A survey dataset taken at the Sand Engine mega-nourishment on the southwest coast of Holland was analyzed in an attempt to locate beach scarps and characterize their development. A beach scarp is defined as a vertical discontinuity in the upper foreshore slope generated through the removal of sediment by natural processes. More specifically,...

The Sand Motor is a unique and dynamic solution for coastal erosion, aimed at distributing the nourished sand along the Delfland coast. Besides enhancing coastal protection, the Sand Motor has been designed to also provide opportunities for recreation and nature development. The contributions of ecosystems to human well-being, that arise from...

The enormous damage caused by hurricane Ike in the year 2008 has been the main incentive for several structural flood risk reduction plans in the Houston-Galveston Bay area. One of them is the ’Ike Dike’, a large-scale coastal barrier which closes Galveston Bay to prevent penetration of hurricane surges. A momentum gain for flood risk reduction...

This thesis presents the application of an aeolian transport model used in desert environments [Sauermann et al., 2001, Kroy et al., 2002] as a tool for the evolution of coastal nourishments. This study will try to investigate the driving processes in the model and adapt or extend the model application to the coastal system. If we want to apply...

The barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico are regularly exposed to hurricanes, one of the main functions of the islands is to protect the mainland. Due to climate change the frequency and intensity of hurricanes is expected to change, which may affect the long term evolution of the islands. In this study these long term (decadal) morphological...

During the winter 2009, beach and dune nourishments have been executed at Vlugtenburg (Holland coast) in order to reinforce the coastal defense. Natural processes such as wind and waves are expected to take care of effective and efficient redistribution of the sand throughout the system. The present study is part of the sub-project Monitoring...

Since the end of 2006 in the Netherlands a test is going on with a passive beach drainage system called Ecobeach. The system consists of vertical draining tubes with a length of 2.0 m called PEMs (Pressure Equalizing Modules). Under the surface level, every 100 m a row of PEMs is installed between the high and low waterline. Ecobeach is a Danish...

Coastal monitoring: Bathymetric surveys of an area of 1 square kilometer of the shoreface near Ter Heijde have been perfomed using the NEMO Jetski. Instruments installed are a Single Beam Echo Sounder (SBES) for depth measurements and accurate GPS for positioning (RTK-GPS). The quality of the Jetski as a platform for bathymetric surveys has been...

Dune evolution on natural and nourished beaches on an engineering timescale is not well understood. Using a study of both literature, and data which has been gathered of the Dutch coast, a new hypothesis regarding the causes of variability in dune evolution is proposed. Following this hypothesis assumptions are made on the basis of which a...
