This study focuses on the infragravity (IG) waves at 5 measurement sites (Brouwershavense Gat 2 (BG2), Oosterschelde 4 (OS4), Cadzand, Hansweert and Bath) in the Scheldt region, examining their characteristics in these waters as well as to what extent they can be modelled using SWAN (Simulating WAves Nearshore). To facilitate this, data...

With the ever so rapid transition towards renewable energy, the offshore electricity transmission system has to expand. Towards 2050, a meshed offshore network is seen as a cost-effective solution to bring electricity to shore. Although there is no "one size fits all", a Cross-Border Cost Allocation procedure is the designated procedure to...

In the past, a large part of the seabed of the southern North Sea was covered by hard substrates, including oyster beds, coarse peat banks, and glacial erratics. Human activities, particularly bottom trawl fisheries, led to the disappearance of most of these hard substrates, resulting in the loss of its associated diverse benthic life as well...

De Rijke Noordzee (DRN) is a Dutch organization with a mission to enhance nature utilizing the opportunities which offshore wind farms offer. The organization is currently working on several nature enhancement projects in offshore wind farms in the Dutch part of the North Sea. However, DRN’s mission to enhance biodiversity does not stop at the...

Offshore wind energy is a renewable energy source that is anticipated to be significant in the global shift towards clean and green energy in order to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and mitigate climate change. In recent years, the overall output of offshore wind energy has increased, and as a result, investments in offshore wind power have...

The urgent need to address global warming and achieve the 1.5°C target set by the Paris Agreement necessitates an energy transition in Europe, with offshore wind energy in the North Sea playing a vital role. Despite the complexity of the North Sea's offshore energy system, the existing literature lacks a comprehensive study of the entire system,...

The purpose of this thesis research was to perform a photovoltaic (PV) performance assessment and comparison between a small-scale land-based PV system and an off-shore off-grid floating PV system. Also from this research design guidelines for off-grid off-shore floating PV systems were developed. The research experiment was carried out in The...

In order to accelerate the transition from carbon fuels to renewable energy sources, it is essential to extend our knowledge of the resources’ availability to further improve or adjust the design of extraction devices. In the present paper, a first characterization of the tidal stream resource along the coast of The Netherlands is performed...

Estimating the three geophysical variables significant wave height (SWH), sea surface height, and wind speed from satellite altimetry continues to be challenging in the coastal zone because the received radar echoes exhibit significant interference from strongly reflective targets such as sandbanks, sheltered bays, ships etc. Fully focused...

Only a few studies on the overall impact of climate change on offshore wind power production and wind power ramps in the North Sea region have been published. This study focuses on the characteristics of expected wind power production and wind power ramps in the future climate aided by the classification of circulations patterns using a self...

Acoustic classification using single-beam and multi-beam echosounders has been widely applied in characterizing seabed sediments. Although previous studies have shown a better discrimination of fine and coarse sediments using multi-spectral echosounder data, analysis regarding comprehensive seabed sediment properties is still needed. In this...

The North Sea has significant potential in becoming a green energy hub, due to its remarkable offshore wind potential, and could therefore facilitate the energy transition to a net-zero energy system in Europe in the coming decades. In this transition, hydrogen is also predicted to play a key role, due to its ability to transport and store...

Schoenmakers, Joris (author)
Due to the increasing impact of terrestrial agriculture on climate change, the attention of a myriad of industries is shifting towards the use of alternative, low-emission resources. Seaweed cultivation has presented itself as a contribution to the mitigation of the increased pressure on current resources. However, coastal and offshore marine...

Although there is a common understanding that the use of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) is needed in our collective attempt to decarbonise society, the type of technology that we should deploy, and where is not so clear. Stakeholders from real-world projects use the outcomes from optimisation models to aid their decision-making process...

Coastal and offshore infrastructure must be designed to withstand extreme wave-induced loading conditions. Extreme Value Analysis (EVA) is often employed to infer probabilistic distributions that provide information about extreme design conditions. In traditional practices, EVA is performed under the assumption of stationarity. This means that...

Ports are important drivers for economic activity. For the Port of Zeebrugge, important sectors include cars, containers and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Due to significant siltation, frequent maintenance dredging is necessary in order to ensure the nautical accessibility. For Zeebrugge, that responsibility falls on the Flemish department of...

Because the seafloor is a complex ecosystem, a multidisciplinary approach must be adopted in order to produce comprehensive habitat maps. Such multidisciplinary projects have been lacking for the Dutch area of the North Sea. To address this lack, the Distribution, structure and functioning of low resilience seafloor communities and habitats of...

Container ships are becoming larger and larger, but also more numerous. As a result, these large ships are pushing their smaller counterparts down the line, until these smaller ships are no longer efficient for trade routes. The focus area of this thesis is on the North Sea and Baltic Sea area, in particular the area between the West coast of...

The amount of suspended fines in the southern North Sea strongly depends on their exchange with the sandy seabed. This exchange is governed by resuspension of fines during storms, followed by burial in the week thereafter. Despite its importance for fine sediment dynamics, the burial of fines into a sandy seabed is currently not well...
