The Wadden Sea is of great ecological importance. Key elements in the Wadden Sea are the extensive intertidal flats. These contain vast amounts of life, serve as feeding grounds for millions of birds, and provide ecosystem services such as coastal protection. It follows that it is important to be able to understand and predict how these vital...

The Hollandsche IJssel plays an important role in the freshwater provision of the province Zuid-Holland. Consequently, for Rijkswaterstaat it is key that salt intrusion is minimal in the Hollandsche IJssel. Recent studies noted that salt intrusion in the Hollandsche IJssel is limited due to a phase difference between tidal velocities in the main...

<br/>In response to the sharp decline of seagrass globally, various restoration techniques have been developed and applied; many at limited scale and with limited success. This research focuses on the fluid mechanics and behaviour of seagrass seeds in a sand mixture through physical laboratory experiments. The objective is to establish a...

In response to the escalating coastal erosion at the Weg naar Zee region in Suriname, this study explores the beneficial reuse of dredged sediment from the Suriname River. The integral question is, ”What is the feasibility of the beneficial reuse of dredged sediment through sediment nourishment to rehabilitate the growth of mangrove forest on...

The Wadden Sea serves multiple roles: it acts as a protective barrier against severe wave conditions, is a natural habitat for diverse flora and fauna and has recreational purposes. This research provides a comprehensive analysis of the intricate morphological dynamics of the Wadden Sea. By implementing various model schematizations, the study...

In the Netherlands, the coastlands act as the principal protection against the sea. Without human interventions, the Dutch coast would be eroding due to an imbalance in the sediment budget of the coastal zone. The preferred coastal management strategy is sand nourishment, which have become larger in scale and more complex over the last 70 years....

The Wadden Sea region is characterized as a diverse and contradictory area. On the one hand, it stands as the largest intertidal area globally, supporting a rich and diverse flora and fauna habitat showcasing nature’s power and allure. On the other hand, it is a landscape shaped by human habitation and extensive transformations, including...

In the Nieuwe Waterweg an ongoing pilot takes place in one of the groyne areas. This pilot is a part of the “De Groene Poort” project. The idea for this project is to create intertidal areas by modifying and nourishing groyne areas. These artificially formed intertidal areas will create a new habitat for wildlife and attract different vegetation...

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...

Low-lying, densely-populated coastal areas across the world are under threat of hurricane-induced floods. This is the case in, among others, the Galveston Bay Area. In response to this threat the USACE (United States Corps of Engineers) recommended a plan to reduce the risk of flooding, through a range of measures to form a resilient coast of...

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...

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...

Coastal aeolian sediment transport is influenced by supply-limiting factors such as sediment sorting by grain size. Sorting processes can cause a coarsening of the bed surface and influence the formation of aeolian ripples. However, it is not fully understood what influence sorting processes have on the magnitude of this transport. In this study...

The overarching aim of this research is to contribute towards a best practice in modelling meso-scale O(10km), medium-term O(5yrs.) morphological features in Tidal &amp; Estuarine environments. Therefore, various modelling aspects and stages are reviewed. The first pillar argues the need for numerical models in the...

The Rhine-Meuse estuary is part of the Southwestern Delta area in the Netherlands. The nature present in the estuary suffered a great impact due to urbanization, as a natural delta transformed into an industrialized river, mainly due to port activities. Various parties decided to collaborate in order to return the tidal nature in the Rhine Meuse...

A significant part of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Dutch have protected their land against seawater since the 10th century. Nowadays, the Netherlands is protected by 3800 km of primary flood defences. Since the Flood Defences Act was included in the Dutch law in 1996, all flood defences are tested against the national safety...

Implementation of nature-based solutions (NBS) in flood defenses is hindered by a lack of probabilistic tools and design guidelines that can be used to assess spatial and temporal variability in these biophysical systems. It is well established that nature-based elements, such as vegetation, attenuate waves, capture sediment, strengthen the...

This thesis describes the development and the characteristics of the coastline along the Dutch coastal zone, managed by Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier. The coastal zone is a rich environment with multiple stakeholders. These stakeholders use the coastal zone for a range of functions such as safety, nature, business, and recreation....

The North Sea is a heavily used area, with wind parks, shipping routes, fishing, sand mining, and many future constructions planned. The Dutch Coastal Zone, the area of the North Sea containing the Dutch coast, is home to several natural areas, alongside extensive human-built flood defenses. Maintaining balance between these areas requires that...
