Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

Besides global warming, climate change is expected to result in (among others) an increased number of extreme precipitation events and a rising sea level. In the future, this can be the cause for an increased number of high river discharge events in combination with high water levels on the North Sea, which goes hand in hand with an increased...

Echosounders are used to monitor suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) in coastal management studies and to monitor dredge plumes. Due to the dependency on sediment properties like particle size, shape and density, performance of single frequency measurements is limited when sediment properties are changing.<br/><br/>Using multi-frequency...

One of the areas of major importance when it comes to weather prediction are clouds, due to their significant impact on the climate and because they are major source of the spread in climate sensitivity in climate models. This paper will focus on the main numerical weather prediction model, HARMONIE, used by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological...

Since early history, humans have been attracted to coastal areas. This can be related to the economic benefits of these areas due to access of ocean navigation, coastal fisheries, tourism and recreation (Seas and Plans, 2011). Around 40% of the world’s population lives within 100 km of the coast (Seas and Plans, 2011). People are drawn to sandy...

This investigation considers the two floating gates of the Maeslant barrier, which is a storm surge barrier in the Rotterdam area. During the end of each closure operation of the Maeslant barrier, the flow at the barrier may be in seaward direction. Three different effects have been observed in the situation with a flow in seaward direction. The...

Implemented in river landscapes, Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have the potential to reduce flood risk, while also playing an important role in restoring many of the ecosystem services that are lost as result of human interventions and global warming. A barrier to succesfull implementation of NbS is the lack of a global and common framework with...

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) have recently gained more interest in hydraulic engineering. It is based on the concept of using forces of nature rather than working against them. In addition, it focuses on using natural processes to fulfil co-benefits for the parties involved. <br/>One of the parties involved is nature. However, a quantitative...

In 2050, the entire energy consumption in the Netherlands is foreseen to come from renewable sources. Offshore wind energy has the potential to enable this transition to a CO2-emission-free energy supply. Consequently, the development of offshore wind farms in the Dutch North Sea has been expanding enormously in the last decade. The Dutch...

Sea level rise will increase the risk of flooding in coastal areas. This poses a risk to the coastal protection as well as rivers and lakes close to the coast. Solutions are needed to cope with this threat. The past decade, nature based solutions have gained significant interest. One of these solutions could be sandy foreshores. Due to the use...

Sea level rise causes more difficulties for coastal maintenance. Although hard structures were built in the past to prevent for flooding, nature based solutions are preferred more recently. For the application of nature based solutions, a better understanding of the coastal processes is desired. Dry sand is transported towards the dunes by...

The wave attenuation of vegetation plays an increasingly important role in flood control in coastal areas. Past studies have found that the interaction of waves with vegetation mainly depends on hydraulic conditions and vegetation characteristics. Therefore, it is necessary to build vegetation models and quantify vegetation characteristics...

Sea level variations and storm surges are expected to increase as a result of climate change. 570 cities and some 800 million people are by 2050 estimated to be exposed to these phenomena when emissions do not decrease (UCCRN, 2018). It is, however, deeply uncertain if and to what extent emissions will decrease. Additionally, the effects of...

The feasibility of installing a suction system, which consists of a pump and pipeline for transporting sediment from the sediment trap to the reallocation site to complement the water injection dredging (WID) method is accessed in this thesis. The combination of a suction system and a water injection dredger is called central suction-WID system....

Willemsen, Marguérite (author)
Dredging is performed for various reasons, including port development, coastal defense and land reclamation. The economic and social importance of such projects is widely acknowledged, but there are growing concerns about the possible environmental impact of the dredge plumes that form as a temporary by-product of these activities. Suspended...

In mid-July 2021, heavy precipitation caused flooding for multiple tributaries of the Meuse and Rhine rivers which resulted in many deaths and exceptional damage. The Ahr in Germany, the Vesdre in Belgium and the Geul in the Netherlands suffered the greatest damage in each country. The first step in reducing such high damage from international,...

Dunes are the primary sea defence along the Dutch coast. This research investigated the development between 1965 and 2021 of the beaches and dunes of the Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier (HHNK) area which stretches from IJmuiden to northern Texel. This research used an advanced data analysis on the annual coastal elevation data. The...

Accurately predicting the surface transport in the ocean is crucial for estimating the course of marine pollution, which is considered one of the most pressing environmental issues of the 21st century. In the ocean, floating marine pollution is transported by several mechanisms, including waves. Current models predicting the surface transport...

The Oosterschelde has been an area of morphological change for centuries. Both floodings and human influences have caused the Oosterschelde to have its current shape. During the last century before implementation of the Delta plan (1953) the estuary was still expanding as the channels deepened and the tidal flats increased. With the construction...
