To help to provide a desperately needed coastal protection strategy for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam this research looks into the possibilities for natural and sustainable coastal defence systems, including mangroves and active sediment management, such as a nourishment. The coastline of the Mekong Delta suffers from severe erosion and mangrove...

Relative sea level rise and climate change, but also the migration of the growing world population to the coast, continuously increase the pressure on the coastal system. In combination with the increased awareness for sustainability, the interests in the coastal zone become integrated and complex. Integrated Coastal ZoneManagement (ICZM)...

Port locations are often selected to optimize access to land and navigable water. Many ports are therefore situated at the mouth of an estuary or along a coastline. Besides being economically important these locations are also often valuable from a biodiversity point of view. Human interventions along the coast such as port development often do...

Marine contractors deal with processes that are understood qualitatively but are hard to quantify. The amount of data available for these processes is ever growing, and so too the intrinsic value that lies within this data. Several data driven model approaches can be used to analyse this process data, one being a Bayesian Network (BN) approach....

The longshore sediment transport (it will be referred also as LST) is a core issue in the field of coastal engineering. It is among the most important nearshore processes that control the coastal morphology, and determines in large part whether shores erode, accrete, or remain stable. Consequently, it is important to be able to calculate the LST...

Deltares is currently involved with multiple Angolan companies to advice on several coastal projects along the Angolan coast, especially in the Luanda area. Luanda is expanding rapidly trying to keep up with its economic growth as such coastal projects like land reclamation occur often these days. Still there is little understanding of the...

Coral reefs are highly valuable structures in many respects and it is increasingly important to understand hydrodynamics and morphodynamics around reefs to be able to better protect them and their hinterland. Flume experiments were performed on a scaled fringing reef in the laboratory facilities of Deltares in Delft. The objective of this thesis...

Our understanding of nearshore coastal zone processes can be improved significantly with the availability of high spatiotemporal resolution bathymetry data. This high resolution data can be used for validation and calibration of numerical models, for providing forecasts of hydrodynamic conditions and morphological development, and for monitoring...

The goal of a sediment tracer is to give quantitative or relative feedback on (coastal) morphological changes or track either sediment or other particles (e.g. contaminations) in sediment dynamic environments. A sediment tracer is a visible or invisible marked (sediment) grain that is artificially injected or is present in-situ. This Master...

East Coast Park is a 15 km long coastal park along the southeast coast of Singapore. It is built on entirely reclaimed land and comprises a sandy shoreline. The beaches along this shoreline are formed due to the implementation of anthropogenic structures all along this stretch of coast through so-called headland control. These structures were...

The scientific foundation to maintain the Holland Coast shoreward of the -20m depth contour is limited. It is assumed that profile perturbations shoreward of the -20m depth contour influence the coast within a time scale of 50 to 200 years. Hence, seaward of -20m NAP dredging companies are allowed to dredge sand. The dredged material is amongst...

Barrier islands are important features in the coastal zone, among others because they shelter the mainland from waves and storm surge. Thus, the degradation of barrier islands can pose a threat to coastal safety. Hence, there is a societal demand for understanding and predicting barrier island evolution. High energy events, such as storms and...

Rip currents are seaward directed flows of water that traverse the surf zone, and in many cases pose potentially dangerous conditions for swimmers and beach users. The present study is carried out focusing on Perranporth beach, UK, which is known to present quite strong rip current events that have been the culprits of large numbers of incidents...

De Graaf, L. (author)
After extensive flooding in 1953, Deltaworks were constructed to protect the Southwest delta in the Netherlands. In the Eastern Scheldt the connection to the North Sea was regulated by an open storm surge barrier and two compartment dams. These decreased the tidal volume and consequently tidal flats are eroding and disappear under water. The...

The most densely populated and economical most valuable areas in The Netherlands lie below mean sea level. These areas are protected against the sea by a coastal dune system. The vital importance of this dune system is reflected in the extensive collection of Dutch legal regulations that ensure the safety level of the dunes. Current safety...

Rip currents are narrow, seaward directed flows in the surf zone that can pose a serious threat to swimmers. This issue has received attention particularly on swell dominated coasts (such as the US, Australia, France and UK) where numerous field experiments have been undertaken. However, the threat of rip currents is less recognised on wind-sea...

In 2003, a first proposal for identification of seaward development, preliminary in combination with residential building, was presented in the Chamber of Deputies and within the States-Provincial (South-Holland), by respectively Geluk and Waterman. In response to this proposition, the ministry started an investigation, but concluded there was...

De Vries, B.B. (author)
During a storm dunes erode and provide sediment to the beach. The foreshore rises and the wave height decreases. Subsequently the wave-induced water level setup increases. Seawalls do not erode. The waves in front of the seawall remain high throughout the storm and the wave-induced water level setup hardly changes. Over a dune-dike connection a...

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...
