Working as natural filter, well-designed vegetation schemes have been widely applied to improve the quality of water (Aiona, 2013; Stefanakis, 2015). Proper design, however, requires appropriate physics-based modelling of their filtering capacity. Several theoretical models predicting sediment transport in vegetated flow have been proposed:...

For the past 2000 years river training works have been performed on the Dutch rivers. These training works have shaped the river system of today. Another result of the river training works, especially over the last two centuries, is a decrease in biodiversity. To protect the biodiversity some floodplains in the Netherlands have been classified...

This research study has investigated the effects of sills as a nature-based countermeasure to reduce saltwater intrusion within Rijnmond Drechtsteden. The effects of this measure have been assessed regarding its impact on port logistics and freshwater supply in the region. The heavily dredged New Waterway provides the vital open connection to...

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)...

Chile is heavily dependent on international trade, making its port infrastructure crucial for its economic development. Projections show that container freight demand is growing rapidly. To cope with the growing demand, an expansion for the port of San Antonio has been proposed. However, current expansion plans have faced opposition due to...

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...

The La Plata Basin is the second largest drainage basin in South America. The Paraná River, the basin’s main river, discharges into the Río de la Plata estuary in Argentina. In the Lower Paraná Delta, near the deltaic front, a complex system of mostly natural and some man-made channels redistribute a part of the river flow. Like the river and...

Mangroves are productive ecosystems. Degradation of mangroves has been observed since the 1970s, due to a variety of reasons. Successful rehabilitation focuses on restoring conditions suitable for mangroves. Sediment availability has been shown to positively impact mangrove growth. Therefore, it can likely play a role in mangrove rehabilitation....

Ebb-tidal deltas play a key role in the morphology of barrier coastlines and tidal inlet systems as they serve as a natural source of sediment. They are typified by a dynamic morphology that interacts with the adjacent coastlines and sponsors a unique ecological habitat. Under increasing socio-economic, ecological and climate-induced constraints...

The overarching aim of this research is to contribute towards a best practice in modelling meso-scale O(10km), medium-term O(5yrs.) morphological features in Tidal &amp; Estuarine environments. Therefore, various modelling aspects and stages are reviewed. The first pillar argues the need for numerical models in the...

In recent years, there has been an increasing need for solutions against the threats that SLR and climate change represent for coastal systems, especially in low lying areas like the SW Dutch coast. Simultaneously, awareness of the impacts that human activities have on natural environments has surged. Integrated and sustainable solutions are...

The existing hydrodynamic models consider full physics approaches to calculate storm surge at coastal regions. However, due to the complexity of the equations that model these processes, the computational time and power required to run them can be large, compared to models that consider simplified equations. By contrast, simplified hydraulic...

Shanghai is a city located in a coastal region and to understand the flood risks it is exposed to, it is of most importance to first understand the processes that control the water levels for the different flood scenarios. Historically, the Huangpu River has reached its highest levels during landfalling typhoon events, which create a combined...

Canal Emilio Mitre is a navigation channel that runs through the Rio de la Plata estuary in South America. It grants access to the second largest inland waterway system in South America, covering (parts of) Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The channel is a main bottleneck for navigation for two reasons; the channel has a...

Durban is the third largest city of South-Africa, located in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. The city suffers from severe floods from time to time, finding its cause in both the Indian ocean as well as the Umgeni river. The eThekwini municipality wishes a better insight in the occurrence of these floods and searches for a structural solution to...

Nourishments are considered to be a popular soft measure against coastal erosion. In the Netherlands, the concept of a localized mega nourishment has been introduced as an innovative approach, aiming to counteract the anticipated enhanced coastal erosion. The positive results of the Sand Engine implementation lead the way for applying the mega...

In the future, two enormous challenges face humanity: decreasing the carbon emissions and supporting the growing energy demands in the developing regions of the world. These challenges highlight the need for a greater amount of implementation of renewable energy projects. This thesis tackles one such potential project, the modeling of a tidal...

Using data made available by George Mason University (GMU), a U.S. university situated in Virginia. Field data is used to validate both a Delft 3D and SWAN standalone model. The paper not only shows the difference between the implicit manning roughness approach and the explicit cylindrical vegetation approach, but also provides a comparison...

We examined the quantitative difference in the distribution of tsunami and storm deposits based on numerical simulations of inundation and sediment transport due to tsunami and storm events on the Sendai Plain, Japan. The calculated distance from the shoreline inundated by the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami was smaller than that inundated by storm...
