'De Slufter' is a nature conservation area located in the Northwest of the Dutch Wadden island Texel which is inundated with seawater during storm events. The landward side of De Slufter is a sand dike which is part of the primary coastal defence ring of the island. HHNK, which is responsible for the coastal safety of Texel, currently relocates...

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...

KEY POINTS:
• While the formation of the intertidal shoal Hinderplaat was a direct consequence of a human intervention, its degradation was a natural response of the system to frequent hydrodynamic forcing conditions.

• Tidal currents push the Hinderplaat in offshore direction, but this is counteracted by waves: these...

To counteract relative sea level rise, Rijkswaterstaat nourishes the Dutch coast with sand. This sand spreads out over the shoreface zone, beach and dunes. One of the nourishment types is the shoreface nourishment. In this thesis, data of historical shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast is analysed to find the factors that influence this...

The Lagos coast has been suffering high rates of erosion since the construction of three harbour moles, i.e. the West Mole, East Mole and the Training Mole, at the tidal inlet connecting the Lagos Lagoon to the South Atlantic Ocean. To provide for a permanent erosion mitigation measure and to create residential and commercial area for circa 400...

The deep foreshore is the part of the cross-shore profile that is between 8 m and 20 m deep. Indications exist that this area might be deepening. In this report the long term morphological consequences of this possible trend on the sandy coast of Holland (the stretch between Hook of Holland and Den Helder, excluding artificial defences) are...

The safety of a large part of the Netherlands is dependent on the safety level of our flood protections. The height and volume of the dunes and the near shore zone influence this safety level. Robust dunes have provided natural safety against the sea for centuries. In the last centuries, structural erosion of the coastline and the increase of...

The harbor of Surgidero de Batabano is a harbor that lies in the Gulf of Batabano in the South-Western part of Cuba. It serves as a connection between the main land of Cuba and the islands 'Isla de la Juventud' and Cayo Largo. The Batabano harbor suffers from sediment accretion. The accretion of sediment is harmful to port operations, since the...

Master project report. The hydraulic efficiency of the river Araranguá will be increased by the construction of jetties at the mouth of the river. The river tends to migrate from south to north which decreases the hydraulic efficiency and causes flooding upstream during events of high discharge. To stop the migration the construction of jetties...

Master project report. Piçarras is one of the touristic beaches of Santa Catarina state in Brazil. Piçarras beach is a headland bay beach. In the bay irregular features like an island, rocky outcrops and shoals are present influencing wave propagation. In the south Piçarras is bounded by Piçarras river. The river mouth has been fixated in 1970,...

Master project report. This report describes the research done by the authors to the erosion and dune migration problems in the town Ingleses. Ingleses is located in the north of Ilha Santa Catarina in Brazil. This report describes a follow-up research on the research in 2007 of project group CF71 from Delft University of Technology. The beach...

The shoreline develops on several time scales. At some places along the coast the amount of sand in a cross-section decreases continuously and the shoreline shifts landward. This phenomenon is called structural erosion and is often caused by an increasing longshore sediment transport along the coast. When it is necessary to protect the coast, e...

Als gevolg van natuurlijke processen, zoals getijde en golven, is een kustomgeving voortdurend aan verandering onderhevig. Hierdoor is een zandige kust niet altijd stabiel en kan er op sommige plaatsen een achteruitgaande kustlijn worden aangetroffen. Indien zo'n achteruitgaande kustlijn een structureel karakter heeft, wordt dat vaak veroorzaakt...

The area of interest in this study is the closed part of the Holland coast. This is the coastal stretch from Den Helder to Hoek van Holland. Here the coast is not interrupted by tidal inlets like at the Waddeneilanden or Zeeland.Due to erosion and accretion the coast is not always stable. Many investigations have been done on these phenomena...

Eerdere onderzoeken naar de bodembewegingen van de diepe vooroever van de Hollandse kust hebben aangetoond, dat er zodanige zandverliezen optreden, dat er sprake is van versteiling. Versteiling is het fenomeen, waarbij het profiel zich niet gedraagt als een vormvast evenwichtsprofiel, maar zich ontwikkelt naar een steiler profiel. Dit kenmerkt...

With the COAST3D measuring campaign at a site near the town of Egmond a valuable data set is available with detailed measurements. This data set is useful for analysis of hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes present in the Egmond (double breaker bar) system. Extensive calibration and validation of numerical models as not only a dense spatial...

Het Haringvliet is een zeegat dat deel uitmaakt van het Deltagebied. Vanaf 1950 zijn er een aantal grote ingrepen gedaan in de monding van het Haringvliet, zoals de aanleg van de Maasvlakte en de Slufterdam en de bouw van de Haringvlietdam met spuisluizen. Door deze ingrepen is de hydrodynamische situatie en daarmee de morfologie ingrijpend...

Kennis van het gedrag van de Nederlandse kust is noodzakelijk voor een verantwoord kustbeleid op de lange en korte termijn. Tot nu toe wordt er bij het beheer van de kust gebruik gemaakt van modellen die de afslag voorspellen als gevolg van extreme condities. Wat er met het kustgebied gebeurt als gevolg van de gemiddelde condities kan nog niet...

Deze afstudeeropdracht betreft het onderzoek naar het mogelijke versteilen van de Hollandse kust. Het versteilen van de kust is het verdiepingsverschijnsel waarbij de dieptelijnen kustwaarts verschuiven. Deze verschuivingen van de dieptelijnen gaan gepaard met zandverlies op dieper water waardoor het kustprofielletterlijk steiler wordt. Dit...
