Shanghai, a metropolis in the east of China, is vulnerable to flooding, and numerous floods have happened along the Huangpu River which flows through the city. In order to protect the booming city and nearly 25 million civilians’ lives and properties, a quantity of flood defences have been built along the Huangpu River. Therefore, a trustworthy...

Various studies have identified a strong relation between the hydrodynamic forces and the equilibrium profile for intertidal flats. A thorough understanding of the interplay between the hydrodynamic forces and the morphology, however, concerns more than the equilibrium state alone. We study the basic processes and feedback mechanisms underlying...

Dynamic equilibrium theory is a fruitful concept, which we use to systematically explain the tidal flat morphodynamic response to tidal currents, wind waves, sediment supply, and other sedimentological drivers. This theory stems from a simple analytical model that derives the tide- or wave-dominated tidal flat morphology by assuming that...

Understanding the mechanisms limiting and facilitating salt marsh vegetation initial establishment is of widespread importance due to the many valuable services salt marsh ecosystems offer. Salt marsh dynamics have been investigated by many previous studies, but the mechanisms that enable or disable salt marsh initial establishment are still...

In the coming decades, the offshore decommissioning industry is becoming a quickly growing market, especially at the North Sea, where most offshore platforms have operated for more than twenty years. There is little room for the mistake in the offshore decommissioning operation, therefore the motion response analysis is essential to avoid the...

River-tide dynamics remain poorly understood, in part because conventional harmonic analysis (HA) does not cope effectively with nonstationary signals. To explore nonstationary behavior of river tides and the modulation effects of river discharge, this work analyzes tidal signals in the Yangtze River estuary using both HA in a nonstationary mode...

The modelling frameworks, which include greenhouse gas emission scenarios, climate models, downscaling methods and hydrological models, are generally used to assess climate change impacts on river floods. In this research, the uncertainty associated with each component of the modelling framework is analysed with particular reference to climate...

Traditionally, vertical circulation (induced by gravity circulation and tidal straining), tidal pumping, and resuspension are suggested as the major processes for the formation and maintenance of the estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM). Due to strong mixing, tidal pumping is considered as the dominating process in macrotidal estuaries. To analyze...

A floating house development project to be constructed in the coast of Hellevoetsluis, in the municipality of Voorne-Putten, is under consideration. Within a project of this nature, several aspects need to be taken into account in order to safeguard the infrastructure against additional loadings to which regular houses are not exposed to....

During winter the Yellow River in China is frequently subjected to ice flood disasters. Possible dike breaking due to ice floods poses a serious threat to the part of the region located along the river, in particular the Ning–Meng reach (including Ningxia Hui and the Inner Mongolia autonomous regions). Due to its special geographical location...

In the South Yellow Sea off the Jiangsu coast, there exists a special type of sand bodies, which are known as radial sand ridge field (RSRF). One of the characteristics of this area is the distinctive radial tidal current field. Although many studies have focused on the hydrodynamic environment around radial sand ridges, the knowledge on the...

A two-dimensional tidal wave model for the Chinese marginal seas with high resolution is set up and the verification results demonstrate that it can well simulate the large domain. Based on this model, a series of numerical experiments are constructed to analyze the influence of local bathymetry and reclamation of the Jiangsu coast on the tidal...

To guarantee a safe flood defence in a changing environment, the adaptation to climate change needs to be considered in the design of river dikes. However, the large uncertainty in the projections of future climate leads to varied estimations of future flood probability. How to cope with the uncertainties in future flood probability under...

The ebb-tidal delta of the Eastern Scheldt tidal inlet has been under the influence of a storm surge barrier for the past 25 years. This barrier caused a strong decrease in average tidal currents through the inlet. The morphological response of the ebb-tidal delta is characterized by several different processes: (1) an overall decrease in...

A 2D large-scale tidal wave model is set up for the Chinese marginal seas and it is proved to simulate the tidal motion in this large domain well. Based on the model, sensitivity analyses have been carried out to investigate the influences of various factors on the tidal wave system. According to the results, the effect of river discharges and...

One of the characteristics of the radial sand ridge field (RSRF) in the South Yellow Sea off the Jiangsu coast is the distinctive radial tidal current field. Although many studies have focused on the hydrodynamic environment around radial sand ridges, the knowledge on the genesis of the radial tidal current is still in a very basic stage. This...

High-resolution morphological modeling of fluvial processes with complex, rapidly varying flows has been limited so far by model accuracy or computational efficiency. One of the most widely used numerical algorithms is based on the total variation diminishing method, solved by either upwind or centered approaches. An upwind scheme preserves high...
