The interaction between vegetation and the morphodynamics is considered to be an important process in salt marsh formation and succession. Therefore, the contribution of vegetation modelling on the long-term morphological development of salt marshes is assessed by implementing a vegetation growth model in the morphodynamic modelling software...

Vegetation in coastal areas plays an important role in its environment. In addition, vegetation can also be utilized for coastal protection. Incoming wave energy could be effectively attenuated by the upstanding vegetation plants. The reduced wave energy results in stabilized seabed and harmonious environment in coastal zones. Nowadays, an...

In every society people will inevitably generate unwanted and useless material that is called waste. However, this term is very subjective and inaccurate because most of these materials still contain valuable resources like nutrients and moisture. This research focuses on growing vegetables using the organic waste material and waste water from a...

Modelling tidal dynamics in mangrove systems is of great use in studying effects of vegetation on flow and may prove to be a useful tool to support the management of mangrove areas. Since there are lots of limitations on obtaining field data inside mangrove forests, numerical models are indispensable to analyse the effects of changes in mangrove...

Introduction: The addition of vegetation to the banks urban drainage channels is an increasingly common measure for improving water quality, enhancing ecological health, and improving aesthetic appeal. An in-stream wetland concept is proposed for channels in Singapore to just that, but faces a major challenge in that high flow rates during storm...

Currently, vegetation is considered a barrier to soil moisture retrieval by both passive and active remote sensing missions. Microwave emission and backscattering of vegetation is driven by the vegetation dielectric constant, which is a function of vegetation water content. The latter is a measure of root zone water availability. Understanding...

Due to growing human activity in coastal zones, there is an increasing stress on salt marshes all over the world. These intertidal wetlands were often seen as coastal ‘wasteland’ and large areas were reclaimed for urban development and agriculture. In Puget Sound, a system of interconnected marine waterways and basins in the northwest of the...

The Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect assumes that cities accumulate heat and are consequently warmer than their peripheries. During the evening and at night, when the countryside has cooled down and the city retains the heat accumulated during the day, the difference is at its maximum. Global climate change brings a temperature rise in the...

The present report represents the second phase of my M.Sc. dissertation. The first phase concentrated on thorough data processing of field measurements in the Paulina Polder, see Kusters et al (2003) in Appendix A. For the present phase of my end thesis I have investigated the influence of vegetation on currents in a mudflat salt marsh ecosystem...

De laatste jaren is er steeds meer aandacht voor natuurvriendelijke oevers. Op veel plaatsen vormen ze een goed alternatief voor traditionele oeverbeschermingen. Verschillende onderzoeken zijn uitgevoerd om na te gaan in welke situaties ze kunnen worden toegepast en op welke manieren ze bescherming bieden. Daaruit is gebleken dat de vegetatie...

De oeverbeschermende werking van riet bestaat aan de ene kant uit een vergroting van de sterkte, het wortelstelsel vormt een sterke wapening van de grond, en aan de ander kant uit een verkleining van de golf en de stroombelasting. In dit onderzoek wordt onderzoek gedaan naar de invloed van riet op de golfbelasting. Om de invloed van net op de...
