The Wadden Sea is of great ecological importance. Key elements in the Wadden Sea are the extensive intertidal flats. These contain vast amounts of life, serve as feeding grounds for millions of birds, and provide ecosystem services such as coastal protection. It follows that it is important to be able to understand and predict how these vital...

Establishing an accurate global unified vertical reference frame (VRF) is a long-standing objective of geodesy. However, that objective has still not been achieved. One particular application where the lack of such a VRF is evident, is the improvement of hydrodynamic models by assimilating total water levels acquired by tide gauges. Indeed, to...

This article presents the design of a control strategy for the Calais canal, a navigation canal located in a lowland area in northern France that is affected by tides. Moreover, the available actuators are discrete-valued and the hierarchy of operational objectives is time-varying. All these circumstances render water level regulation of the...

The projected increase in sea level is expected to increase the intensity of coastal flooding threatening communities living along the coast. This, in combination with population growth and urban expansion, calls for a better understanding of Extreme Water Levels (EWLs), the mechanisms generating them, and their components, i.e., astronomical...

Understanding the factors that drive extreme water levels is key to an accurate assessment of flood hazard. The city of Venice has always been affected by flooding due to extreme water levels. In this study, we examine the factors driving and influencing extreme water levels in the Venice lagoon, aiming at deriving accurate extreme water level...

Absolute sea-level rise has become an important topic globally due to climate change. In addition, relative sea-level rise due to the vertical land motion in coastal areas can have a big societal impact. Vertical land motion (VLM) in Southeast Asia includes a tectonically induced component: uplift and subsidence in plate boundary zones where...

ESA’s Earth explorer mission CryoSat-2 has an ice-monitoring objective, but it has proven to also be a valuable source of observations for measuring impacts of climate change over oceans. In this paper, we report on our long-term ocean data analysis and validation and give our final words on CryoSat-2’s Geophysical Ocean Products (GOP)...

Effects of sea-level rise (SLR) on future peak water levels in tidal deltas and estuaries are largely unknown, despite these areas being densely populated and at high risk of flooding. While the rates of SLR accelerate, many channels simultaneously experience channel deepening for navigation. With globally decreasing sediment supplies, most...

Coastal hazards represent an existential threat to Italian coastal regions since they host important economic centers related to manufacturing and tourism. Knowledge of potential extreme sea levels (ESL), their component, and their interactions are essential to better evaluate potentially hazardous future extreme events in a changing climate...

With the continued rise in global mean sea level, operational predictions of tidal height and total water levels have become crucial for accurate estimations and understanding of sea level processes. The Dutch Continental Shelf Model in Delft3D Flexible Mesh (DCSM-FM) is developed at Deltares to operationally estimate the total water levels...

All realizations of the European Vertical Reference System (EVRS) computed so far are solely based on geopotential differences obtained by spirit leveling/gravimetry. As such, there are no direct connections between height benchmarks separated by large water bodies. In this study, such connections are added by means of model-based...

Both empirical and assimilative global ocean tidal models are significantly more accurate in the deep ocean than in shelf and coastal waters. In this study, we answered whether this is due to the quality of the models used to reduce tide and surge or the general approach to treat tide and surge as two separate components of the water level...

The main objective of this study is to develop and analyze an empirical noise model for model-derived coastal summer mean water levels (SMWLs) and use that to obtain a more realistic quality impact of combining hydrodynamic leveling and Unified European Leveling Network (UELN) data in realizing the European Vertical Reference System (EVRS)....

Plastic pollution in rivers threatens ecosystems, increases flood risk due to its accumulations at hydraulic structures and its final emissions into the ocean threaten aquatic life, especially and probably most in coastal urbanized areas. Previous work suggests that plastic pollution in these urban rivers is influenced by hydrometeorological...

In the last fifty years, the spacemissions Voyager, Galileo, Cassini-Huygens and Juno explored the moons of the outer Solar System and revealed a wide spectrum of worlds. While some of these worlds are barren, others are among the most geologically active of the Solar System. The innermost Jovian moon, Io, showcases spectacular volcanic activity...

Coastal flooding is threatening the personal safety, property, and social development of the low-lying land around the coast worldwide. Stormsurge is one of the main sources of coastal flooding. Tide and surge models can provide timely water level forecasts for coastal management with the early warning of flooding. Although a regional model can...

Temporal changes in vertical land motion (VLM) in and around Phuket Island in southern Thailand following the great 2004 Sumatra–Andaman megathrust earthquake have impacted the relative sea-level change estimates based on tide-gauge (TG) records. To better monitor the VLM, two new continuous global navigation satellite system (GNSS) stations...

Net water transport (NWT) in estuaries is important for, for example, salt intrusion and sediment dynamics. While NWT is only determined by river runoff in single channels, in estuarine networks, it results from a complex interplay between tides and residual flows. This study aims to disentangle the various contributions of these physical...

A chenier is a beach ridge, consisting of sand and/or shells, overlying a muddy substrate. In this paper, we explore the cross-shore dynamics of cheniers in their ‘active’ phase, i.e. the phase between their formation and their landing on the shore and can no longer be reached by daily wave and tidal influences. While cheniers described in...
