The Rhine Region of Fresh Water Influence (ROFI) is a shallow frictional river plume in front of the Dutch coast. Each tidal cycle a new tidal plume front with fresh-water is released. Recently, internal gravity waves have been observed in this plume. Using a Froude number analysis, support for the internal wave generation mechanism by a tidal...

This study analyzes and compares data for interventions (river training works, dredging and nourishment), discharge statistics, bed elevation and slope spatially and temporally in the Niederrhein, Bovenrijn, Pannerdensch Kanaal and Waal branches. River training works have actively taken place in the study area so far. Meander cutoffs and...

Nature-based water management is rising as an alternative approach to engineered water management. Nature-based water management makes use of ecological, hydrological, and morphological processes of natural rivers in designing river management policies. Furthermore, it helps conserving or restoring these natural processes for environmental...

Changes in the Earth’s climate system do have consequences for the river discharges. The development of the future climate is uncertain, which causes uncertainty in the future extreme river discharges. For flood protection considerations, it is important to quantify the climate uncertainties and its effects on extreme river discharges. In this...

Sediment nourishments have become an attractive alternative to hard measures in counteracting long-term river bed degradation. Due to the large degree of uncertainty concerning mixed sediment morphodynamics, river authorities conduct field studies to collect data that will help in the calibration of morphological models, eventually used to...

Over the last centuries, Dutch rivers such as the Rhine have been heavily trained for the purpose of the safe discharge of water, sediment and ice, and navigability. After the notorious flood events of 1993 and 1995 along the Rhine, new large-scale river works were initiated, such as the Room for the River (RfR) programme, to increase flood...

This Master Thesis presents a numerical model analysis of the response of the Rhine ROFI on wind direction and speed. The aim of this study is to gain a further insight in the physical processes of the Rhine ROFI. Previous work on the Rhine ROFI focused mostly on tidal effects (straining and mixing) and inertial motions (earth rotation). Other...

The data content of remote sensing (RS) images of sea surface temperature (SST) and normalized water-leaving radiance (nLw), for the year 1998, with respect to the River Rhine plume, is investigated. Questions that this study tries to answer are: is it possible to identify the plume from the available RS images, and under which conditions is...

In the one-dimensional 'Rhine Alarm Model' differences between the actual travel time of a pollutant-cloud (Tpol), originating from an instantaneous release of an accidental spill, and the travel time, based on the flow velocity (Tflow) is represented by a lag coefficient ß. The travel time of the pollutant Tpol is related to the centroid of the...
