Degrading mangrove forests and coinciding erosive coastlines is an urgent global concern. Mangroves are essential for their interaction with hydrodynamic and sediment processes at mangrove-mud coasts. Earlier on, solutions were sought in building ’hard’ structures, such as concrete sea walls, to lower incoming wave energy and enhance...

As a low-lying city, Shanghai faces threats from typhoon and spring tide under the condition of climate change and land subsidence. With high water level at the toe, the sea embankment is likely to be overtopped and breached, finally resulting in inundation inland.  The objective of this research is to study climate change...

Coastal bays in the Caribbean accommodate different marine ecosystems, including seagrass meadows and coral reefs, which provide important ecosystem services. However, these marine ecosystems are endangered. Seagrass ecosystems have a key role in coastal bays, but despite their alarming rates of loss, they receive little attention compared to...

Hurricanes impose great threats on coastal communities in terms of hazard and impact. Recent hurricanes like Harvey (Texas, 2017) and Idai (Mozambique, 2019) emphasize the global character of this threat. In the U.S., Hurricane Harvey tied with 2005's Hurricane Katrina as the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting $125 billion in...

Shallow bays in the Caribbean, like Baie Orientale and Baie de L'Embouchure in Saint Martin, are often sheltered by coral reefs and covered by seagrass meadows. They provide valuable services as tourism and coastal protection. The ecosystems are linked through biological, chemical and physical processes. But they are under pressure due to sea...

The Sand Engine was constructed in 2011 with the main goal to enhance the natural dune growth. It is the first mega nourishment in the world comprising of 21.5 Mm<sup>3</sup> of sediment. There is a large difference between the predictions of the dune growth (25 ha in 20 years) and the actual measurements (1 ha in 4 years). Therefore a more...

Dit onderzoek bestudeert het energieverlies van het barotroop getij aan de opwekking van intern getij. Dit energieverlies vindt plaats bij stroming van de gestratificeerde oceaan over steile topografieën, zoals ruggen in de oceaan en bij de randen van continentale platen. Zo'n 25-30% van de totale getij-energie, die wordt opgewekt door de zon en...

This study aims for a better understanding of the sediment pathways in San Francisco South Bay (South Bay). Many issues relevant to the Bay Area community such as shipping, recreational and commercial fishing, habitat restoration, human health, and environmental water quality are reliant on understanding sediment pathways (McKee et al. [2006])....

The use of rivers for navigation and the increased human activity along their banks generally requires river control and improvement measures. Most rivers have a natural tendency for continuous change of alignment, e.g. meandering and braiding rivers. Construction of bridges, towns, berths, etc. have required fixation of the river alignment at...

Numerical process-based morphodynamic models are widespread in coastal engineering practice and have become the new standard when it comes to assessing the impact of natural or man-made structures on coastal environments. The most common practice among engineers is to focus on a single spatial and time scale, which means either neglecting...

Floods are a big problem for Jakarta; the capital of Indonesia is subsiding below mean sea level and floods will become more frequent. Flood protection and measures against subsidence are, therefore, of high importance to Jakarta’s government. One of the options they are studying is a great sea wall to regulate the water levels in Jakarta Bay....

Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...
