Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...

This study is about the effect of outer-delta bottom topographies adaptations on salt water intrusion in estuaries. An increase in salt water intrusion is considered as problematic in a lot of estuaries in the world. Various solutions are developed in the past to reduce salt water intrusion. These solutions have also negative side effects. An...

Estuarine morphodynamics are of broad importance to estuaries’ functions related to navigation, human settlement and ecosystems. Inspired by the Yangtze River estuary (YRE), this study aims to explore the impact of river discharge, tides and their interaction on long-term estuarine morphodynamics. Use is made of 1D and 2D process-based models....

Aquatic plants –or macrophytes- are an important part of coastal, estuarine and freshwater ecosystems worldwide, both from an ecological and an engineering viewpoint. Their meadows provide a wide range of ecosystem services: forming a physical protection of the shoreline, enhancing water quality and harbouring many other organisms. Unfortunately...

The aim of this thesis was to investigate how (macro)benthic organisms interact with the ecological functioning, erodibility and small- to medium-scale morphodynamics of estuarine intertidal sediment by modulating its composition and/or properties. In these interactions, scale is of great importance for the ecosystem engineers. The changes they...

Simoons, E. (author)
Singapore’s coastal waters are characterised by relatively complex tidal behaviour due to it’s location between two large oceans with different tidal regimes. This complex tidal behaviour results in poor understanding of the hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics. The hydrodynamics of the Johor River estuary, including part of the Singapore Strait...

The Westerschelde estuary in the South-West of the Netherlands displays two meandering flood and ebb channels separated by shoals. The system of flood, ebb channel and shoal between two channel crossings form a morphological cell. The stability of the serial cell system formed by the Westerschelde is important for the navigation route to the...

Existing Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) for Poole Harbour was the first generation produced in 2004, which is before statutory obligations to protect the natural coastline were fully realised. Under the idea of ‘adopting a sustainable policy for the longer-term’, at present the second generation of SMP is being produced. This study was...

The Feiyun River, with a length of 203 km and a catchment area of 3252 km2, is one of eight rivers in Zheijiang Province (see fig.1-1), China. It flows into the East China Sea in Shangwang of Ruian City. The source of Feiyun River is at Xialing located in the border between Zheijiang and Fujian Province. The tidal influence can reach up the...

The port of Kandla, which is situated in the north west of India and is subject to a large tidal variation of about 5 metres, is preparing a major expansion plan. The capacity of the harbour will be increased in two ways. Firstly the construction of several berths and jetties will allow more ships to be handled on a yearly basis. Secondly...

The present paper describes an analysis of the morphological integrityof the multiple channel system (MCS) of the Western Scheldt estuary. The tidal flats and surrounding ebb and flood channels form morphological cells, and the entire MCS can be schematized as a chain of such cells. The major ebb and flood channels have lost their one time...

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...

Rijkswaterstaat overweegt enkele sluizen in de Haringvlietdam ook bij hoogwater te openen. De dam is een onderdeel van de Deltawerken die als hoogwaterkeringen zuidwest-Nederland bescherrnen tegen overstromingen. De aanleiding van dit plan vorrnen de effecten van de aanleg van de dam op het ecosysteem in het Haringvliet en in de Voordelta. Door...

Het volbouwen van Nederland zorgt vandaag de dag voor een vergroting van de aandacht voor ondergronds bouwen. Een manier om ondergronds o.a. verkeers- en spoortunnels aan te leggen is door deze te boren. De overlast voor mensen, bebouwing en natuur wordt op deze manier tot een minimum beperkt. Een belangrijk aspect van tunnels is altijd de...

In 1993 an interdisciplinary research programme on the behaviour of mud in tidal waters was initiated by the Board of NWO-BOA. The programme aims at obtaining more detailed insight in the dominant processes that govern the transport behaviour of mud. These processes have strong time variability and therefore the general approach is to obtain...

In het kader van een afstudeerproject is een studie verricht naar de morfologische ontwikkeling van de Westerschelde sinds 1650 volgens eendimensionale rekenmodellen. De validatie van dit soort modellen is namelijk een probleem. Van de Westerschelde bestaat weliswaar een groot aantal meerdimensionale modellen, maar door de grote hoeveelheid aan...

This project is situated at the Yangtze estuary in China with Shanghai as its main centre. An Estuary Decision Support System (EDSS) for the Westerschelde exists with different modules on each field of speciality. The Port Development Module (PDM) is a new module for the Yangtze-EDDS and deals with port development in the estuary. The report...

Van der Wildt, H. (author)
Due to increasing dredging costs, especially in ports and estuaries where the bed often contains contaminated substances, an increased tendency is observed to the investigation for more structural solutions to prevent deposition. Before however applying such engineering schemes a thorough knowledge of the sediment dynamics is needed. In the...

Het Sieperdaschor is ontstaan uit de voormalige Selenapolder, nadat in februari '90 tijdens een zware storm de zomerkade is doorgebroken. Reparatie bleek te kostbaar en daarom is in overleg met Zeeuws Landschap besloten om de dijk niet te herstellen. Dit bood een goede gelegenheid om de ontwikkeling van polder tot schor te onderzoeken. Dit mede...
