The accurate simulation of wetting–drying processes in floodplains and coastal zones is a challenge for hydrodynamic modelling, especially for long time simulations. Indeed, dedicated numerical procedures are generally time-consuming, instabilities can occur at the wet/dry front, rapid transition of wet/dry interface and mass conservation are...

Coastal retreat problems occur in many deltas over the world. Coastal features are not constant over time and are affected by sea level rise, river runoff, sediment supply, wave and tidal energy, underlying geology and climate. In addition, human activities profoundly influence the coastal processes as a result of changing natural patterns of...

The research and improvement of methods to be used for deformation measurements from space is a challenge. From the previous 20 years, time series Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) interferometry techniques have proved for their ability to provide millimeter-scale deformation measurements over time. This paper aims to provide a review of such...

The Mekong river is one of the largest rivers in the world, which flows through six countries of Southeast Asia (China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam). Its hydro-sedimentary regime is changing rapidly, as a consequence of a regional shift of land use (agriculture, road, etc.), damming, sand mining and climate changes, among...

Wooden fences are applied as a nature-based solution to support mangrove restoration along mangrove coasts in general and the Mekong Delta coast in particular. The simple structure uses vertical bamboo poles as a frame to store horizontal bamboo and tree branches (brushwood). Fence resistance is quantitatively determined by the drag...

A two-dimensional, barotropic numerical model was employed to investigate the dynamics of tidal wave propagation in the South China Sea with a particular interest for its characteristics along the Mekong deltaic coast. The study indicates that tidal waves propagate from the Pacific Ocean into the South China Sea mainly through the Luzon Strait ...

Strategic delta planning focuses on strategic, long-term choices to stimulate sustainable development in deltas. Strategic delta plans outline a long-term vision to be embedded into the plans and activities of government agencies and semi-public actors at multiple levels. This implies a form of coordinated, yet decentralized, implementation....

Sustainable livelihood development is an ongoing challenge worldwide, and has regained importance due to threats of water shortages and climate change. To cope with changing climatic, demographic and market conditions in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta (VMD) an agricultural transformation process has been suggested in the recent Mekong Delta Plan. This...

Probabilistic flood forecasting requires flood models that are simple and fast. Many of the modelling applications in the literature tend to be complex and slow, making them unsuitable for probabilistic applications which require thousands of individual simulations. This article focusses on the development of such a modelling approach to...

The limitation in quantity and quality of climate data, in particular rainfall measurements, directly affects the reliability of hydrological models, which negatively impacts on the quality of water resources planning and management. This is obviously true in poorly-gauged or in transboundary river catchments with limited practice of data...

More than half of Vietnam's national rice production is produced in the Mekong Delta. Many hectares of rice were damaged due to extensive salinity intrusion during the dry season of 2016. The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production is studied by (1) mapping the impact using remote sensing data (MODIS NDVI time-series) and (2)...

Dao, T.; Stive, M.J.F.; Hofland, B., and Mai, T., 2018. Wave damping due to wooden fences along mangrove coasts. In the Mekong Delta, as in many other mangrove settings, wooden fences are considered beneficial coastal structures to provide sheltering for mangrove replantation efforts by reducing waves and currents and promoting sedimentation....

Rapid hydropower development is taking place in the Mekong river, which is expected to change the natural river regime. Because of the ecological and economical importance of the Mekong delta, the effects of these changes could have large consequences in the delta area. This research focuses on the hydrodynamical processes and assesses potential...

To help to provide a desperately needed coastal protection strategy for the Mekong Delta in Vietnam this research looks into the possibilities for natural and sustainable coastal defence systems, including mangroves and active sediment management, such as a nourishment. The coastline of the Mekong Delta suffers from severe erosion and mangrove...

Additional master thesis - To mitigate the effects of the hydropower dam development on the Mekong river system, research must be done on the effects of sediment catchment of these dams. With unknown amounts of sediment, stored in the banks and in local bars, all spread over this long bedrock channel, local sediment transports are hard to...

This study is about the effect of outer-delta bottom topographies adaptations on salt water intrusion in estuaries. An increase in salt water intrusion is considered as problematic in a lot of estuaries in the world. Various solutions are developed in the past to reduce salt water intrusion. These solutions have also negative side effects. An...

The yearly floods of the Mekong Delta caused by the Mekong River have been considered a blessing; it purifies the agricultural lands and deposits a fresh layer of silt on the surface, which keeps the delta fertile. However, the growing demand for agricultural products internationally and nationally has pushed the farmers to harvest all year long...

For three hundred years, Mekong delta has become a water society where inhabitants in this region developed adaptive strategies, often called “shaking hand with floods”. Historically, people first settled on the lightly higher terraces and later on the levees along the river. With the digging of canals, people started to settle along the canal...

The Mekong Delta is located in the South of Vietnam, where the Mekong River flows into the East Sea. The Mekong Delta is responsible for producing half of the national food volume for Vietnam. Socio-economic and agricultural development in particular, have encountered several restrictive factors though: decreasing amount of agricultural land,...

According to the future development plan, discharge sluices will be constructed at three main branches of Tien River to prevent salinity intrusion. To evaluate the consequences of these constructions to the Mekong Delta Estuaries, the empirical relationship between tidal prism and river cross-section is estimated in this study. It is found that...
