The dunes along the Dutch coast serve as a critical component of flood defense. Storms and a shortage of sediment supply offshore lead to dune and shoreline erosion, posing a hazard to flood safety. To combat coastal erosion, the Dutch government decided in 1990 to proactively nourish the coast. It is expected that as an indirect effect of the...

Coastal dunes serve as the primary defence mechanism against coastal storms for many coastal communities around the world. Vegetation plays a role in increasing dune resiliency as it enables dune growth, however not enough is known about its effects during storms. Research has shown that the current climate crisis will increase the intensity of...

Coastal dunes are dominant features along much of the world’s sandy coastlines serving as the first line of protection against coastal flooding. Besides this primary purpose, the coastal dunes also provide a variety of other functions such as the supply of drinking water, nature conservation and recreational areas. With the secondary functions...

The influence of beach buildings on coastal dune development is still largely unknown, and it could pose a risk to the functionalities coastal dunes provide. The objectives of this research are covered by the main research question: What is the influence of specific types of beach buildings on aeolian coastal dune development and what are...

Coastal dunes serve as a first line of protection against flooding by the sea. In the recent past, the interest in secondary services provided by coastal dunes has increased. These services include ecological values and recreation. In order to manage and maintain the coast as an attractive area that combines coastal protection and ecological...

In 2003, it was established that the sea dike between Petten and Camperduin was insufficiently safe.<br/>To ensure the safety of the hinterland against flooding, this part of the Dutch sea defence system needed to be strengthened.<br/>During the design process, the most favourable variant was to construct a dune and beach system in front of the...

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...

In 2014-2015 the coastal stretch between Petten and Camperduin was strengthened by using 35 million m3 of sand. At the seaward side of the Hondbossche & Pettermer sea defence a beach and dune system was built which is called the ‘Hondsbossche Dunes’. The old sea dike has disappeared behind the new dunes and is no longer an active part of the...
