Within the KustGenese 2.0 research project a 5Mm3 pilot nourishment is created on the ebb-tidal delta of Ameland. For this thesis I was involved in the parties; Van den Herik, the contractor who executed the work, Deltares and Rijkswaterstaat. A tool is created to quickly analyse new surveys in combination with the ships deposit data. The tool...

Considering scenarios of sea level rise, the sediment budget of the Wadden Sea is of interest for both coastal safety and for the maintenance of values of this unique environment. Sand nourishments are foreseen on the ebb-tidal deltas of the Wadden Sea to increase the sediment budget, which requires us to predict the fate of the nourishment....

Ameland inlet is centrally located in the chain of West Frisian Islands (the Netherlands). A globally unique dataset of detailed bathymetric charts starting in the early 19th century, and high-resolution digital data since 1986 allows for detailed investigations of the ebb-tidal delta morphodynamics and sediment bypassing over a wide range of...

This study investigates nonlinear wave shape and the near-bed velocity influenced in the vicinity of a tidal inlet for the SEdiment supply At the WAdden Sea ebb-tidal Delta project. Wave nonlinearities occur when waves encounter a flow. An opposing flow leads to waves with higher peaks and reduced wave length. During a following flow, the waves...

Drifters equipped with GPS-trackers have been widely used to investigate surface velocities in a wide range of coastal and oceanic settings. A detailed description of a new, cell-phone based, budget drifter system is given, along with an overview of the potential error sources and the magnitude of these sources. Drag related “windage” errors...

Gong, Yichuan (author)
This thesis explores the nature of coastal dune behavior and the role of sediment supply in the aeolian system. The first part of the thesis conducts a data analysis based on the Dutch JARKUS dataset, which provides yearly measured profiles along the Dutch coast. A series of parameters derived from the profile measurements have been used to...

Sea level rise poses challenges to the tidal inlet systems of the Wadden Sea, including the barrier islands. If no measures are taken, the shorelines of the islands will retreat and the basins may drown. In the Ameland Inlet, the Boschplaat at the eastern tip of Ameland and Bornrif at the western tip of Terschelling are currently shrinking. <br/...

van Til, S.W. (author)
The fairway connecting Holwerd and Nes forms the main transport route between Friesland and Ameland (the Dutch Wadden Sea). It consists of several tidal channels that funnel the majority of the tidal currents propagating through the tidal basin. Over the past decades, several channel bends have expanded leading to a fairway length-increase of...

Tenthof van Noorden, C. (author)
The coastal bathymetry is one of the most essential inputs for understanding, monitoring and modelling the coastal environment. A remote sensing technique called marine radar may overcome disadvantages of present monitoring techniques and has the advantage to obtain measurements with a high spatial and temporal resolution. A Fast Fourier...

Jiao, J. (author)
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...

Dissanayake, P.K. (author)
This dissertation qualitatively investigates the morphodynamic response of a large inlet system to IPCC projected relative sea level rise (RSLR). Adopted numerical approach (Delft3D) used a highly schematised model domain analogous to the Ameland inlet in the Dutch Wadden Sea. Predicted inlet evolution indicated the typical channel/shoal pattern...

Achete, F.M. (author)
The objective of this work is the understanding of the development and possible impacts of the Sand Engine via a possible analogy with the Bornrif morphodynamics. The Sand Engine is the pilot project for a new nourishment technology (the mega nourishment), which consists of nourishing a huge amount of sand at once and let the nature spread it....

The spectral wind wave model SWAN (Booij et al. 1999) plays a key role in the estimation of the Hydraulic Boundary Conditions (HBC) for the primary sea defences of the Netherlands. Since some uncertainty remains with respect to the reliability of the wind wave model SWAN for application to the geographically complex area of the Wadden Sea, a...

The aim of the Strength and Loading of Coastal Structures (SBW) project is to improve the models to derive the Hydraulic Boundary Conditions which are determined along the Dutch coast once per five years. The Amelander inlet is chosen as area of interest in the Wadden Sea. As the Amelander Inlet is morphologically a very active area, this study...

During the storm season from October 2006 untill April 2007 several severe storms occurred at the North Sea. Three storm periods are selected to study the realiability of the SWAN wave model by means of a hindcast. The objective of this hindcast is to gain insight into the performance of the SWAN model, especially under storm conditions for the...

Het doel van dit rapport is tweeledig: 1 Demonstreren hoe advisering voor het kustbeheer en kennisopbouw volgens de KUST2005-werkwijze samengaat. 2 De morfologische ontwikkelingen en processen rond de westkust van Ameland en het Zeegat van Ameland samenvatten. Daarbij volgen uit de nieuw opgebouwde kennis van het gebied twee alternatieve...

Primary water defences protect the Netherlands against flooding by the North Sea, the major rivers and inland seas Markermeer and IJsselmeer. The Dutch Water Defence Act [Wet op de Waterkering] stipulates that these water defences have to be tested every five years to determine if they guarantee the statutory safety level with respect to the...
