Ho Chi Minh City is flooded on a regular basis due to the lack of flood protection. Plans have been made to protect the city from flooding in the future and therefore a barrier is built at Phu Dinh. This barrier needs to fulfil three requirements. Firstly it should protect HCMC against a flood, as well resulting from tidal waves as from peak...

Increases in typhoon intensity and sea level rise could pose significant challenges to coastal defences around Tokyo Bay. In order to analyse the extent of future problems the authors determined the increase storm surge that could result from an increase in typhoon intensity and sea level rise to this area around the turn of the 21st century....

The coastal zone is one of the most dynamic environments on our planet and is much affected by global change, especially sea-level rise. Coastal environments harbour valuable ecosystems, but they are also hugely important from a societal point of view. This book, which draws on the expertise of 21 leading international coastal scientists,...

Coastal erosion has gained global attention and has been studied for many decades. As a soft sea defence structure, coastal sandy dunes protect coastal zones all over the world, which usually are densely populated areas with tremendous economic value. The coastal zone of the Netherlands, one of the most well-known vulnerable areas to coastal...

The Netherlands’ strategy to combat coastal erosion since 1990 has been through nourishment, initially as beach nourishments but more and more as shoreface nourishments. In the light of sea level rise projections the yearly nourishment magnitudes continue to increase. In view of this an innovative soft engineering intervention, comprising an...

The storm surge barrier and levees located in the Hollandsche IJssel do not fulfill the current safety standards according to the third nationwide safety assessment. The non-closure probability of the storm surge barrier is too high and the inner slope stability of the levees is too low. Besides the problems regarding the flooding safety also...

After the disastrous floods in 1953 in the Netherlands, measures are taken to improve the safety in the Netherlands. In the Southwest of the Netherlands a couple of tidal basins are closed by the construction of dams and storm surge barriers. The closure of tidal basins shortens the coastal length and can result in a cost reduction comparing...

Viet Nam lies in the region of direct impact of sea level rise and climate change, especially in the East Sea where branches of Me Kong river run off. In the annual report on “Climate change and sea level rise in Viet Nam” MONRE has proposed 3 scenarios of sea level rise in the next 100 years viz. 60 cm (low emission scenario), 75 cm (medium...

Current methods used to determine Coastal setback lines have several limitations. Furthermore, the historical practice of defining setback lines based on a single deterministic estimate is also proving inadequate with the emergence of risk management style coastal planning frameworks which require probabilistic estimates of coastal recession....

Recent research done the IPCC (2007) working groups and other organizations has sparked global concern over the possible impacts of climate change and corresponding sea level rise (SLR) upon coastal communities. In reaction studies were done (for example by Nicholls et al., 2008) to assess the vulnerability of coastal regions and get an...

Tidal inlets are of great societal importance as they are often associated with ports and harbours, industry, tourism, recreation and prime waterfront real estate. Their behaviour is governed by the delicate balance of oceanic processes (tides, waves and mean sea level), and fluvial/estuarine processes (riverflow and heat fluxes), all of which...

This dissertation qualitatively investigates the morphodynamic response of a large inlet system to IPCC projected relative sea level rise (RSLR). Adopted numerical approach (Delft3D) used a highly schematised model domain analogous to the Ameland inlet in the Dutch Wadden Sea. Predicted inlet evolution indicated the typical channel/shoal pattern...

Economic and population growth have led to an unprecedented increase in the value at risk in coastal zones over the last century. To avoid excessive future losses, particularly in the light of projected climate change impacts, coastal zone managers have various instruments at their disposal. These primarily concern land-use planning ...

Sea level is rising across the UK and this is expected to accelerate and to increase coastal flood risk over the 21st century. Southampton is one of the busiest and most important national ports, but coastal flooding has not been studied extensively before. This dissertation aims to investigate the likelihood of coastal flooding in Southampton...

The increase in trade and economies of scale has influenced ports in respect to the growth and services they provide. Ports as trade commercial centres, in which international markets and national economies meet, must start considering how the impacts of extreme climate change influence their port management and operations. This particular study...

This study is part of a global study on the costs of adaptation to the effects of climate change. It adds information from three specific case studies (the Netherland, New Orleans and Vietnam) to the global study. The case study areas are comparable by type of coast; all are low-lying deltaic coastal areas. This study investigates the unit cost...

The rise of sea level increases the risk of coastal flooding by increasing the probability of occurrence of flood event at a given height. The essence of coastal planning and management in the future relies on an accurate coastal flood risk assessment with regards to sea level rise. Through the set up of flood risk assessment model in Geographic...

It is the policy of the Dutch government to aim at the extraction of gas from the smaller gas fields in The Netherlands to spare the large Slochteren field in Groningen. The gas reservoirs below the Wadden Sea are counted among the smaller fields. Their capacity is estimated to 200 thousand million cubic metres, and their economic value is equal...
