In the Netherlands dikes are assessed on piping using the model developed by Sellmeijer. This model is calibrated on experiments with permeable, homogeneous, fluvial sand with no fines and covered by an impermeable cohesive layer. In tidal areas, however, the sand deposits are strongly heterogenous, contain fines and are influenced by...

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...

Canal Emilio Mitre is a navigation channel that runs through the Rio de la Plata estuary in South America. It grants access to the second largest inland waterway system in South America, covering (parts of) Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The channel is a main bottleneck for navigation for two reasons; the channel has 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...

Coastal regions are more and more affected by changes in water levels, storm patterns etc. owing to climate change. Nourishments and other human interventions constitute common practice in order to maintain and secure these areas. However, many aspects, especially the hydrodynamics, are not yet fully understood due to the complexity of the...

In this thesis the equilibrium cross-sectional areas of a tidal inlet are investigated. The most common used methods to study cross-sectional stability are the Escoffier method (Escoffier, 1940) and the Modified Escoffier method (Van de Kreeke, 2004). The Escoffier methods are mainly empirical and lack physical justification. Therefore, in this...

Coastal dunes serve as a first line of protection against flooding by the sea. In the recent past, the interest in secondary services provided by coastal dunes has increased. These services include ecological values and recreation. In order to manage and maintain the coast as an attractive area that combines coastal protection and ecological...

The Sand Engine was constructed in 2011 with the main goal to enhance the natural dune growth. It is the first mega nourishment in the world comprising of 21.5 Mm<sup>3</sup> of sediment. There is a large difference between the predictions of the dune growth (25 ha in 20 years) and the actual measurements (1 ha in 4 years). Therefore a more...

San Francisco Bay is the largest estuary on the west coast, and it supports a surrounding population of over 7 million people. Human developments have reduced the amount of fine sediments delivered to the Bay-Delta system in recent years, which threatens habitat restoration initiatives and suitable water quality in the southern reach of the Bay ...

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...

Since 1990, the Dutch coastline is maintained within the ‘Dynamic Preservation’ program, according to which the coastline is maintained seawards from a reference line, mainly by applying nourishments. Research into the maintenance of the Dutch coast is continuous and causes the content of the coastline preservation program to change constantly...

The St Lucia Estuary is Africa’s largest estuarine system and part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in December 1999. The St Lucia Estuary is connected upstream to Lake St Lucia and downstream it flows into the Indian Ocean. The St Lucia Estuary is located at a wave dominated coast...

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/...
