Boersma, Q.D. (author)
Responsibly using the subsurface for geo-energy extraction or storage requires an accurate understanding of the static and dynamic behaviour of the targeted reservoirs. While mostly dependent on intrinsic rock properties (e.g. porosity and permeability), this behaviour is also believed to be significantly impacted by the presence of natural...

Molijn, R.A. (author)
In this study, research on productivity and land cover monitoring is presented, with a focus on sugarcane, based on space-based remote sensing observations that were collected by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and optical sensors. The study aims to provide new insights into techniques and methodologies that allow for cost-efficient monitoring of...

Ship collision is a classical problem for maritime practitioners and researchers. Human error is a major cause of collision accidents, which motivates researchers to develop automation systems replacing navigators on board. However, before autonomous ships fully replace conventional ships, supporting the situational awareness of human operators...

NatureCoast is the largest research program that focused on the Sand Motor, a large sandy peninsula, constructed in 2011 on the Dutch North Sea coast near The Hague. This unprecedented pilot project involved placing 21.5 million m3 of sand on and in front of the beach with the aim that it would spread along the coast. The Sand Motor<br/>is a...

Coastal zones have long attracted humans and human activities, due to the economic opportunities they offer, their aesthetic value, and the diverse ecosystem services they provide. As a result, coastal zones throughout the world have become heavily populated and developed, with 15 of the world’s 20 megacities (population &gt;10 million) being in...

To actually design for sandy solutions, designers need to know the key factors that drive ecosystem services. This section will look at the key factors that drive the three main ecosystem services of coastal defense, recreation and nature development, followed by a description of how to evaluate these. Finally, an example of arguable the most...

Ports provide an essential link to the world market, enabling countries to trade their goods and strengthen their economies. However, the global and regional benefits of port developments do not always translate into benefits to local stakeholders. There is often a mismatch between the positive global and regional effects of port development and...

Multifunctional flood defenses protect areas against flooding, but<br/>serve other functions as well. Although these types of defenses<br/>can be seen almost everywhere, they pose special technical and<br/>governance challenges.<br/><br/>This book is about a unique interdisciplinary research program<br/>developed to tackle some of the issues...

Anvarifar, F. (author)
The very existence of the Netherlands and its prosperity is tightly linked to the provision of sufficient and reliable flood protection. Flood risk can change, as it is influenced by continually changing environmental and socio-economic factors. In such a dynamic situation, maintaining sufficient safety requires...

Although storm at the North Sea produces moderate flood levels compared to the hurricane-impacted storm surge flood levels at the East Coast, Rotterdam and New York show comparable flood characteristics (see Figures at top next page). The majority of the urbanized waterfront areas in New York City and Rotterdam...

Several alternative concepts could be developed that would integrate the structure of the Roof Park shopping complex with the flood defense. It is common practice in engineering to develop various concepts, keeping the project goal in mind. This is a creative process that should not be hampered by overly precise...

In the Netherlands, economic cost-benefit analysis plays an important role when deciding on safety levels for flood defenses. The cost of increasing the safety level is weighed against the reduction in flood risk (the benefit). The optimal level occurs where the sum of the cost and benefits is at its minimum; this is shown graphically in Figure...

Galveston Island is a barrier island with a population of approximately 60,000, located between Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico on the Texas coast. Due to its location, Galveston is not only on the front line of hurricane-induced storm surges coming from the Gulf, it is also a key site for any flood defense aiming to protect the entire...

Dealing with collaboration challenges in integrated spatial projects Almost everybody agrees that the environmental challenges we are currently facing need to be approached in an integrated manner, from governments to citizens, and from companies to research institutes (Brown 2008; Brown &amp; Farrelly 2009). To...

Katwijk aan Zee is a Dutch town on the North Sea, near the original mouth of the Rhine. At the end of the twentieth century, part of the town of Katwijk appeared to be insufficiently protected against storm surges from sea (Figure 2). About 3000 inhabitants were in fact exposed to risks that were higher than what...

Various interesting tools were used and/or developed to stimulate knowledge integration in the Multifunctional Flood Defenses program. This chapter will present a diverse collection of these tools, hopefully stimulating others to consider using some of them in future.

The saying goes that ‘Everything is bigger in Texas.’ This holds true for both the flood risk in the Houston-Galveston Bay Area, and for the complexity of issues that need to be dealt with in order to reduce it – assuming there is agreement that the current risk is unacceptable. There is currently no formal...

Many functions are combined in the Rotterdam Roof Park project: It is a shopping mall, a parking garage, a park on the roof, and last but not least, a flood defense. The research in our program was done after the buildings and structures had been built. So the research projects were not hampered by the...
