After a storm surge in November 2007, older storm surge deposits were discovered in the eroded dunes near Heemskerk, the Netherlands. These deposits undulate in height with a maximum elevation of over 6 m above mean sea level. Luminescence dating suggests that the layers were deposited by either the 1775 or the 1776 storm surge. The aim of this...

The Indian Ocean Tsunami has once again revived the discussion in the tsunami modelling community if the non-linear shallow water equations are a valid model for the propagation of tsunamis. It is suggested that the mechanism of frequency dispersion which is absent in these equations might be important in the correct modelling of large scale...

The primary objective of this thesis is to generate a 2DH-numerical model to simulate dune overwash. The first stage in this is achieved by modifying the program code of an existing overwash model in development, XBeach, to enable 2DH calculations. In the second stage the hydrodynamics of the model are verified using theoretical and laboratory...
