Understanding of the behaviour of coastline perturbations at soft-coastlines is essential for modelling coastal evolution at decadal time scales. Many coastline models do, for example, implicitly assume dominant diffusive behaviour of coastline features. The validity of this assumption is investigated for the Dutch coast on the basis of data on...

This thesis answers the question "How can we show and improve our confidence in coastal forecasts?", by providing four examples of common coastal forecasts. The first example shows how to improve the estimate of the one in ten thousand year storm-surge level. The three dimensional reconstruction, based on paintings, shows that structural erosion...

In this paper, the aeolian transport model DUNE (Sauermann et al., 2001, Kroy et al., 2002) that describes important features and dynamics of typical desert dunes, is extended such that it can be applied in sandy coastal areas. Initial tests explore the limitations of the model in coastal areas after which adaptations are proposed and...

The Lagos coast has been suffering high rates of erosion since the construction of three harbour moles, i.e. the West Mole, East Mole and the Training Mole, at the tidal inlet connecting the Lagos Lagoon to the South Atlantic Ocean. To provide for a permanent erosion mitigation measure and to create residential and commercial area for circa 400...

The deep foreshore is the part of the cross-shore profile that is between 8 m and 20 m deep. Indications exist that this area might be deepening. In this report the long term morphological consequences of this possible trend on the sandy coast of Holland (the stretch between Hook of Holland and Den Helder, excluding artificial defences) are...

The harbor of Surgidero de Batabano is a harbor that lies in the Gulf of Batabano in the South-Western part of Cuba. It serves as a connection between the main land of Cuba and the islands 'Isla de la Juventud' and Cayo Largo. The Batabano harbor suffers from sediment accretion. The accretion of sediment is harmful to port operations, since the...

Master project report. The hydraulic efficiency of the river Araranguá will be increased by the construction of jetties at the mouth of the river. The river tends to migrate from south to north which decreases the hydraulic efficiency and causes flooding upstream during events of high discharge. To stop the migration the construction of jetties...

Master project report. Piçarras is one of the touristic beaches of Santa Catarina state in Brazil. Piçarras beach is a headland bay beach. In the bay irregular features like an island, rocky outcrops and shoals are present influencing wave propagation. In the south Piçarras is bounded by Piçarras river. The river mouth has been fixated in 1970,...

Master project report. This report describes the research done by the authors to the erosion and dune migration problems in the town Ingleses. Ingleses is located in the north of Ilha Santa Catarina in Brazil. This report describes a follow-up research on the research in 2007 of project group CF71 from Delft University of Technology. The beach...

Morphodynamics of a tidal inlet system on a micro-tidal coast in a tropical monsoon influenced region is modelled and discussed. Effects of tides, waves, river flows and system configuration on the inlet morphologies are investigated with the aid of process-based state-of-the-art numerical models. Seasonal and episodic behaviour of the inlet...

The shoreline develops on several time scales. At some places along the coast the amount of sand in a cross-section decreases continuously and the shoreline shifts landward. This phenomenon is called structural erosion and is often caused by an increasing longshore sediment transport along the coast. When it is necessary to protect the coast, e...

Als gevolg van natuurlijke processen, zoals getijde en golven, is een kustomgeving voortdurend aan verandering onderhevig. Hierdoor is een zandige kust niet altijd stabiel en kan er op sommige plaatsen een achteruitgaande kustlijn worden aangetroffen. Indien zo'n achteruitgaande kustlijn een structureel karakter heeft, wordt dat vaak veroorzaakt...

The area of interest in this study is the closed part of the Holland coast. This is the coastal stretch from Den Helder to Hoek van Holland. Here the coast is not interrupted by tidal inlets like at the Waddeneilanden or Zeeland.Due to erosion and accretion the coast is not always stable. Many investigations have been done on these phenomena...

Het Haringvliet is een zeegat dat deel uitmaakt van het Deltagebied. Vanaf 1950 zijn er een aantal grote ingrepen gedaan in de monding van het Haringvliet, zoals de aanleg van de Maasvlakte en de Slufterdam en de bouw van de Haringvlietdam met spuisluizen. Door deze ingrepen is de hydrodynamische situatie en daarmee de morfologie ingrijpend...

Kennis van het gedrag van de Nederlandse kust is noodzakelijk voor een verantwoord kustbeleid op de lange en korte termijn. Tot nu toe wordt er bij het beheer van de kust gebruik gemaakt van modellen die de afslag voorspellen als gevolg van extreme condities. Wat er met het kustgebied gebeurt als gevolg van de gemiddelde condities kan nog niet...

Deze afstudeeropdracht betreft het onderzoek naar het mogelijke versteilen van de Hollandse kust. Het versteilen van de kust is het verdiepingsverschijnsel waarbij de dieptelijnen kustwaarts verschuiven. Deze verschuivingen van de dieptelijnen gaan gepaard met zandverlies op dieper water waardoor het kustprofielletterlijk steiler wordt. Dit...

Het onderwerp van dit afstudeerproject is ontstaan naar aanleiding van een prijsvraag van de gemeente Zijpe. Ter gelegenheid van het 400-jarig bestaan van de Zijpe en Hazepolder werd een prijsvraag uitgeschreven met als onderwerp: "kijk op de kust". Door de TU-Delft, in samenwerking met Alkyon, werd aan de prijsvraag meegedaan. Hun "kijk op de...
