The Bollen van de Ooster, in this report referred to as the Ooster, is a sand bar in the outer delta of the Grevelingen. The Ooster is separated from the coast by a relatively deep channel, called the Schaar. Closure of the Grevelingen in 1971, with the construction of the Brouwersdam, initiated vast changes in morphology. Damming of the estuary...

Accelerated sea level rise (SLR) is predicted to have multiple adverse impacts on the coastal zone, aggravating phenomena such as coastal erosion on sandy coasts. For climate change adaptation planning and informing policy, morphodynamic changes occurring at coastlines are becoming increasingly important. In this study, a calibrated Delft3D...

Sandy beaches comprise large parts of the world's shorelines and act as a natural buffer for many exposed people and assets that are concentrated in the coastal zone. Many coastal communities are vulnerable to the impact of sea-level rise (SLR) that can amplify the episodic erosion from storms and drive structural erosion. The way communities...

The Volta Delta Region is facing not only the challenge of severe coastal erosion, but also to create a balance between the nature and the challenges brought by the urbanization. By these challenges, the project shows a possible future in developing a vulnerable area with an integrated landscape in a dynamic situation of delta region with...

The Weg naar Zee (WnZ) region of Suriname’s capital Paramaribo is dealing with coastal erosion. Images from the past 30 years have shown coastal retreats of up to 1.3 km. Mangrove forest used to be present in large numbers at the location. These forests enhance accretion, but due to different reasons, the number of mangroves has decreased...

The beach at Ngapali, Myanmar is eroding, resulting in a shoreline which moves landward. The coastline gets closer to the vegetation each year and during the monsoon season, at high tide, it reaches the palm trees completely. The assumption is that this is due to people shovelling truckloads of sand from the beach to use for construction, this...

Coastal erosion in Myanmar causes the coastline to retreat, which increases the flood risk for those who live near the coast. Lack of data about the coastline retreat makes it difficult to design proper flood protection measurements (UNFCC 2007). Since Myanmar is a relative poor country traditional measuring techniques, such as laser mapping,...

Coastline regression is a significant threat to many coastal zones. Being able to mitigate the erosion while simultaneously improving nature development is something that is increasingly strived for in coastal projects. This report utilizes the building with nature philosophy to explore integrated solutions for a coastal erosion problem in...

As a result of increased economic development in Colombia, the pressure on the natural system has increased. The export of natural resources through international ports at both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea causes conflicts between infrastructure and the dynamic behaviour of the coastal system. This Master Thesis focusses on the bay...

In the southern part of Vietnam, where the lower Mekong Delta is located, coastal erosion problems occur. In the Bạc Liêu province, one of the twelve provinces in the Mekong Delta, the width of the mangrove belt between the sea dyke and the sea is reduced by 100 m in the last four years. By rehabilitation of the mangrove forest, the hinterland...

The highway Ruta Nacional 90 (between Barranquilla and Santa Marta) is heavily endangered by progressive coastal erosion. Principally, this has a natural cause since the shifting mouth of the Magdalena River led to an insufficient supply of sediment. However, this threat has been foreseen for decades without it leading to adequate planning or...

The Thua Thien-Hue province, and especially the area around the city of Hue, is characterized by a small distance between mountains in the west and a flat coast with a coastal barrier in the east. The largest river in the area, the Huong river, flows through the city of Hue and is used for fishery, tourism, sand mining, sewage system and...

The purpose of this research is to model coastal erosion at a site on the Ural coast of the Baydara Bay, Russia. The research carried out in this thesis, aims to create a model to represent the hydrodynamics and sediment transport patterns prevalent at the site, using MIKE21 developed by DHI. The model is calibrated using the available data. The...

East Coast Park is a 15 km long coastal park along the southeast coast of Singapore. It is built on entirely reclaimed land and comprises a sandy shoreline. The beaches along this shoreline are formed due to the implementation of anthropogenic structures all along this stretch of coast through so-called headland control. These structures were...

Manado City is growing, its population is increasing. This demands the city to grow outside its borders and even into the sea by using land reclamation. Introducing new challenges or making challenges bigger, which are already present. Not only growth is present in the city, going forward and becoming better and better is an on-going fight for...

Beachrocks are lithified coastal sedimentary formations which form inside the beach body on short time scales, possibly within a year. Beachrocks can play an important role in the evolution of a shoreline as they fix the normally loose sediments. On the other hand, the evolution of a shoreline could play an important role in the genesis of...

The coast of Bulgaria is subject to erosion. Because of this fact, around the town of Balchik, which is situated on the Black Sea coast, almost no sandy beaches are present. Last years there have been vast tourist developments in and around Balchik. Because of these developments, the province demands solutions to adapt coastal protection...

The ongoing erosion of the Negril Beach has become worse the past decade. In most places along the coast line, the beach will be gone in approximately 10 years. This will result in a major decrease of incomes that are made by the local tourist sector. To prevent the erosion this study has been performed to find a feasible and affordable solution...

Master project report. Since the seventies, the establishment of hotels and other facilities has increased the pressure on the Kenyan coast. During the last decade, hotel managers and residents in Diani Beach have been experiencing problems with erosion. The only measures taken to address the problem are individually built seawalls to protect...

In this study, research has been done to the nature and causes of an erosion problem in Crucita by calculating wave properties along the coast and the resulting sediment transports. Furthermore measures against this erosion have been examined and a fishery port has been designed. Finally the feasibility of both these actions has been...
