Salt marshes can contribute to coastal protection, but the magnitude of the protection depends on the width of the marsh. The cross-shore width of the marsh is to a large extent determined by the delicate balance between seaward expansion and landward retreat. The influence of the magnitude of daily occurring mild weather conditions and...

Tidal marshes play an important role in climate change mitigation through natural coastal protection. The effectiveness of the natural coastal defense by tidal marshes is closely related to their channel network which is in turn greatly influenced by their vegetation cover and shape. Previous research suggests a dual effect of vegetation on...

Coastal bays in the Caribbean accommodate different marine ecosystems, including seagrass meadows and coral reefs, which provide important ecosystem services. However, these marine ecosystems are endangered. Seagrass ecosystems have a key role in coastal bays, but despite their alarming rates of loss, they receive little attention compared to...

This thesis presents the development a generic morphological model for both structured and unstructured grid and the extension to a biogeomorphological model. For the morphological model, numerical algorithms are adjusted to adapt unstructured grid and are validated against analytical solutions and flume experiments. For the bio-geomorphological...

Flume experiments and field observations demonstrating the effects of vegetation on river planforms are reported in literature, but numerical studies of these effects at the river scale are lacking. We investigated the effects of vegetation in a 2D morphodynamic model using submodels for flow resistance and colonisation of newly formed deposits....

Understanding the interactions between the ecosystem and the morphology of river floodplains, i.e. floodplain biogeomorphology, is becoming increasingly important in view of modern river management and climate change. There is a need for predictive models for the natural response of river floodplains to hydraulic measures and river...

Projections are that Rotterdam, one of the worlds' largest harbours, will be in need of 1250 hectares of additional harbour area within the next 15 years. To meet this demand a substantial land reclamation ("Maasvlakte-2") is considered, which could provide 1000 hectares of new harbour areas and 750 hectares for nature and recreation. In...
