The Dutch Wadden Sea is consisting of 7 tidal inlet systems separated by sandy barrier islands. The general morphodynamics and hydrodynamics of tidal inlets are relatively well understood, but the detailed interactions remain a prominent research interest. In this study, process-based computer models are employed as a tool to investigate the...

After decades of coastal erosion in the north-west area of the Island of Texel, the shore-normal `Eierlandse Dam` had been built in 1995. The dam, situated in the outer delta of the Eierlandse Gat tidal inlet, resulted in a remarkable short-term morphological development of the adjacent coast. Four years following completion of the dam, large...

Tidal inlet systems, as found in the Dutch Wadden Sea, often feature both sand and mud. Due to differences in sediment properties, sand and mud particles respond different to identical forcing conditions, like short waves and tidal currents. Because of this, sand and mud can get transported to different locations. This process is referred to by...
