The world’s coasts and deltas offer a multitude of valuable ecosystem services, providing safety against flooding and economic benefits. Many of these systems are, however, under pressure by climate change and increasing human activities. Protecting these systems and preservation of their multiple functions requires a thorough understanding of...

Tidal stream turbines are becoming an affordable option for harvesting sustainable energy in coastal areas. They can be retrofitted in barrages, providing an integral solution for flood protection and emission-free power generation, within environmental constraints. To optimize the turbine-barrage configuration with respect to these...

The morphology of tide-dominated systems is progressively influenced by human activities and climate change. Quantitative approaches aiming at understanding or forecasting the effects of interventions and climate change are often aggregated, thereby simplifying or schematizing the investigated area. In this work, we advance on the knowledge...

Many estuaries and tidal basins are strongly influenced by various human interventions (land reclamations, infrastructure development, channel deepening, dredging and disposal of sediments). Such interventions lead to a range of hydrodynamic and morphological responses (a changing channel depth, tidal amplitude and/or suspended sediment...

The behaviour of tidal basins has been predicted using a modelling approach in which a morphological equilibrium for an entire basin was used frequently in the past. Because tidal basins have, to an certain extend, a fractal nature, it is expected that this approach could be used with a morphological equilibrium for subbasins as well.<br/><br/...

The sediment composition of the seabed governs its mobility, hence determining sediment transport and morphological evolution of estuaries and tidal basins. Bed sediments often consist of mixtures of sand and mud, with spatial gradients in the sand/mud content. This study aims at increasing the understanding of processes driving the sediment...

Reclamation of low-lying tidal flats and floodplains adjacent to present shorelines has been implemented worldwide for both coastal defense and development. While it is technically feasible to monitor the short-term impact of tidal flat embankments, it is challenging to identify long-term and cumulative morphodynamic impact, particularly...

The Wadden Sea is the largest system of tidal flats and barrier islands in the world extending from the northern Dutch coast to the coast of Denmark. Such a large natural area is ofgreat importance to bothhuman beings and ecosystems. Over 10,000 species of flora and fauna are found in theWadden Sea being a perfect habitat due to the relatively...

The existence of morphodynamic equilibria of double-inlet systems is investigated using a cross-sectionally averaged morphodynamic model. The number of possible equilibria and their stability strongly depend on the forcing conditions and geometry considered. This is illustrated by considering a rectangular double-inlet system forced by M<sub...

Human interventions and climate change can heavily influence the large-scale morphological development of tidal basins. This has implications on sediment management strategies, as well as ecological and recreational purposes. Examples of heavily impacted tidal basins are those in the Western Dutch Wadden Sea. The closure of a large sub-basin...

Global climate changes have accelerated sea-level rise (SLR), which exacerbates the risks of coastal flooding and erosion. It is of practical interest to understand the long-term hydro-morphodynamic adaptation of coastal systems to SLR at a century time scale. In this work we use a numerical model to explore morphodynamic evolution of a...

This textbook on Coastal Dynamics focuses on the interrelation between physical wave, flow and sediment transport phenomena and the resulting morphodynamics of a wide variety of coastal systems. The textbook is unique in that it explicitly connects the dynamics of open coasts and tidal basins; not only is the interaction between open coasts and...

In recent years, there has been an increasing need for solutions against the threats that SLR and climate change represent for coastal systems, especially in low lying areas like the SW Dutch coast. Simultaneously, awareness of the impacts that human activities have on natural environments has surged. Integrated and sustainable solutions are...

To improve the socioeconomic situation in the Republic of Nicaragua, the government has decided to strengthen the country’s transport infrastructure by building a port on the Caribbean coast. The future port will be in Bluefields Bay, which can be characterised as a lagoon-shaped estuary. The inner basin is connected to the sea by two tidal...

The existence of cross-sectionally averaged morphodynamic equilibria of tidal inlets is investigated, using a cross-sectionally averaged model, and their sensitivity to variations of geometry, deposition parameter, frictional effects and advective sediment transport is analysed. Different geometries, from exponentially converging to...

In the future, two enormous challenges face humanity: decreasing the carbon emissions and supporting the growing energy demands in the developing regions of the world. These challenges highlight the need for a greater amount of implementation of renewable energy projects. This thesis tackles one such potential project, the modeling of a tidal...

Tidal basins are highly dynamic environments with a complex behavior that is often disturbed by human activities. Considering that tidal dynamics have a direct impact on surrounding engineering infrastructures, adjacent coastlines, nature environment and socio-economic human activities, it is crucial to know the impact of human interventions on...

The typically mild slopes of the muddy coastline in the south of Myanmar, enable the tide to propagate deep into the mainland, carrying muddy and saline water. The Nga Moe Yeik Creek (a tributary of the Yangon River) is closed off at the upstream end during the dry season and is subject to high siltation rates. Extensive dredging is necessary to...

Simple stability relationships are practically useful to provide a rapid assessment of coastal and estuarine landforms in response to human interventions and long‐term climate change. In this contribution, we review a variety of simple stability relationships which are based on the analysis of tidal asymmetry (shortened to “TA”). Most of the...

The Eastern Scheldt basin is protected by a semi-open storm surge barrier that was completed in 1986. In 2015 a set of five turbines was installed in one of the barrier openings as a pilot for tidal energy extraction. Due to the construction of the barrier, the average tidal range and velocities have significantly decreased throughout the basin...
