This report contains the conceptual lay-out for two possible expansions of the port of Bahía Blanca. To determine the best conceptual lay-outs, emphasis is drawn to understand the physical system to determine the effect of the expansion of the port on the natural system. The port of Bahía Blanca is situated at the end of a ria, or tidal basin....

The upper reservoir intervals of the Lower Jurassic Åre Formation in the Heidrun Field (Offshore mid-Norway) are very heterolithic and have the lowest oil recovery factor of the field despite significant amounts of remaining reserves. One of these reservoir zones is the formation Åre 6.2, which is mainly composed of tide-dominated heterolithic...

Trace metals appear in estuarine systems in two forms: dissolved and particulate.
Describing the partitioning between these two forms is done by a coefficient, K_d, which relies on a number of environmental parameters, such as the salinity of the water and the seasonally dependent biological activity. Although this coefficient is known to...

Sandy barriers comprise 12% of coastlines around the world, and most of these barriers enclose tidal bays and lagoons. These systems accommodate human settlements vulnerable to climate change, which offer enough economic, social, and environmental utility to require further research on the impact of climate change and subsequent best management...

This project traces the role the North Sea has played in the history of the United Kingdom, with a particular focus on territorial control. In a post-Brexit scenario where supply chains between the island and the continent are interrupted, the contiguous zone just twelve nautical miles from the coast of the UK provides an ideal economic grey...

Thames estuary of UK is one of the most dynamic area with vulnerable coastline, but still most of residents there have no idea about what is happening and what will happen in their surroundings. Hence,the design of Environment Research Center intends to stress the dynamic climate changes in an adaptive way. The Environment Research Center is...

The Volta Delta Region is facing not only the challenge of severe coastal erosion, but also to create a balance between the nature and the challenges brought by the urbanization. By these challenges, the project shows a possible future in developing a vulnerable area with an integrated landscape in a dynamic situation of delta region with...

This graduation project investigates the main processes that are influencing the morphological development of the Outer Weser estuary by setting up a process-based model (Delft 3D) and applying it by means of simulating multiple scenarios, each driven by a different forcing. The aim of this project is to gain insight into the causes for the...

Intertidal flats and salt marshes can protect hinterland against wave energy and flooding by tides or storm surges. Thus, the development of tidal flats is important to foresee. The presence of specific small scale features could indicate a certain development and large scale morphological shape. The shape is a predictor for development and it...

The St Lucia Estuary is Africa’s largest estuarine system and part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in December 1999. The St Lucia Estuary is connected upstream to Lake St Lucia and downstream it flows into the Indian Ocean. The St Lucia Estuary is located at a wave dominated coast...

The main goal of this project is to develop a sustainable method to mitigate flooding of the non-tidal rivers in the United Kingdom which can be used by all stakeholders within the climate scenario of 2050.
The focus on non-tidal rivers will mean the focus of flooding will be mainly on fluvial flooding, while pluvial flooding will be a...

Over time, the width-averaged depth of estuaries changes due to a complex interaction of hydrodynamics and suspended sediment transport. In many estuaries one specic location with a suspended sediment concentration (SSC) higher than in the sea or in the upstream river, is found, which is called sediment
trapping. The location of the maximum...

This thesis investigates the origins of large sedimentation volumes in the Port of Santos, São Paulo - Brazil. The port is located in the Santos - São Vicente estuarine system, delimited by scarps and subject to intense rainfall. The terminals are placed inside the estuary and their access is provided by a 24 km long channel with mean depths of...

Estuaries are complex systems that show a variety of hydrodynamic conditions. These conditions are influenced by bathymetry, geometry, climate characteristics, interacting fresh and salt water flows, and mixing effects caused by winds and wind-waves. The interaction between fresh and salt water flows in combination with mixing effects caused by...

The Tilting Lock is an innovative solution for locations where road traffic crosses marine traffic overhead by a bridge. The occurrence of traffic jams at a bridge during the passage of vessels can be reduced by the construction of a Tilting Lock. By 'submerging' the vessels in the Tilting Lock underneath the bridge, the Tilting Lock increases...

An estuary forms the transition between the ocean/sea and a river. Within its boundaries salt and fresh water mix. Fresh water intake points may be located within the reach of salt intrusion. In order to justify political and managerial decisions it is thus necessary to understand and be able to predict the process of salt intrusion in estuaries...

A shoal connecting channel connects two main channels over a shoal area. Shoal connecting channels are dynamic in their behavior and create areas alternating in height. By doing so the connecting channels make the area ecologically more valuable. Over time the dynamics of the shoal connecting channels in the Westerschelde have decreased. The...

Small blind estuaries are a common phenomenon on the coast of Nicaragua, but unfortunately not much is known on their hydrological characteristics. A blind estuary can be identified by a sandbar that temporarily closes the estuary from sea. These blind estuaries often have very diverse flora and fauna on which they play an important ecological...
