Establishing an accurate global unified vertical reference frame (VRF) is a long-standing objective of geodesy. However, that objective has still not been achieved. One particular application where the lack of such a VRF is evident, is the improvement of hydrodynamic models by assimilating total water levels acquired by tide gauges. Indeed, to...

Sand waves are found on shallow, sandy seabeds throughout the world and their dynamics may pose an imminent threat to offshore construction. Therefore, there is a pressing need to understand bed level dynamics in sand wave areas. These bed level dynamics lead to variations in sand wave shape and migration rate over time. However, these...

Subtropical coastlines are impacted by both tropical and extratropical cyclones. While both may lead to substantial damage to coastal communities, it is difficult to determine the contribution of tropical cyclones to coastal flooding relative to that of extratropical cyclones. We conduct a large-scale flood hazard and impact assessment across...

Low-lying coastal areas are threatened worldwide by compound flooding effects, including sea-level rise (SLR), frequent tropical cyclones (TCs), and accelerated land subsidence (LS). Compound flooding results in a negative effect, creating challenges for decision-making and coastal management for sustainable urban development. To comprehend...

This study focuses on optimizing the use of high-performance computing on public cloud infrastructure, along with information theory, for assessing water systems. These assessments are computationally intensive and can benefit from parallel computing and the evaluation of the collected data with information theory. A case study of a water system...

Gatun Lake, located in the Panama Canal Watershed (PCW), is the main source of freshwater for the Canal's operations and it provides drinking water for nearly 600,000 people, which represents roughly 15% of the country's population. Since its creation at the beginning of the 20th century, Gatun Lake has slowly been transitioning from a swamp...

Hydraulic structures can be a promising place for tidal energy extraction due to the high flow velocities, easy access to the power grid and easy access for maintenance. However, quantification of the impacts of a tidal power plant in a hydraulic structure is not straight forward. In 2015 a pilot plant consisting of an array of five Tocardo...

In the coming decades, coastal flooding will become more frequent due to sea-level rise and potential changes in storms. To produce global storm surge projections from 1950 to 2050, we force the Global Tide and Surge Model with a ∼25-km resolution climate model ensemble from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 High Resolution...

A managed realignment is the landward relocation of a flood defence to re-establish tidal exchange on formerly reclaimed land. In a managed realignment, the newly formed intertidal area acts together with the realigned dike as a nature-based flood defence system. In this thesis, the focus is on the managed realignment of Perkpolder, a former...

Second-order Gaussian kernels have been utilized to develop three algorithms that could automatically extract ridge lines for hydrodynamic modelling. Isotropic second-order Gaussian kernels produce inaccurate lines at crossings and junctions. To avoid the malfunctioning of Second-order Gaussian kernels, one default and two alternative algorithms...

Mean sea level rise (SLR) could increase up to 2m by 2100, which would see damage caused by coastal flooding in Europe increase from €1.25bn per annum currently to €961bn in just over 80 years. Urban areas situated along the North Sea coastline are particularly vulnerable to extreme sea level rise (a combination of SLR, tide and storm surges)....

Due to an intensification of anthropogenic activities and climate change in recent decades, the hydrological connections and relationships between rivers and lakes have been significantly modified globally. Poyang Lake is one of the largest freshwater lakes globally and is one of the few that remain naturally connected to the Yangtze River....

The rapid development of free and open-access hydrological models and coupling framework tools continues to present more opportunities for coupled model development for improved assessment of floodplain hydrology. In this study, we set up an Upper Zambezi hydrological model and a fully spatially hydrological-hydrodynamic coupled model for the...

The need for accurate estimation of hydrodynamic and water quality model variables arises from the UNITED project, which aims to create high-resolutional forecasting systems for monitoring the cultivation of seaweed and flat oysters and operating of the Belgian pilot of UNITED in the coastal area of the North Sea. Accurate observations of...

Flooding has been a serious risk to the old-town of Venice, its residents and cultural heritage and continues to be a challenge in future. Despite this existence-defining condition, limited scientific knowledge on flood hazard and flood damage modelling of the old-town of Venice is available to support decisions to mitigate existing and future...

Recent studies have shown that flood risk contributes to a major part of the total risk caused by natural hazards in Western Europe. Especially in the United Kingdom, flood risk has been identified as a substantial threat, which is likely to continue to grow due to (coastal) urbanisation, sea level rise and climate change. A separate study has...

Flood simulations are important for flood (fatality) risk assessment. This article provides insight into the sensitivity of flood fatality risks to the model resolution of flood simulations and to several uncertain parameters in the loss of life model used. A case study is conducted for river flooding in a polder in the Netherlands (the...

Economic risk due to a potential flood event is determined by combining the estimated damages and the probability of failure for many scenarios. In recent research of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) it was stated that the sea level will rise more than expected due to climate change . This could influence the flood risk in...

Over the recent years, flood risks and losses have been increasing for coastal cities due to climate change, subsidence, population and economic growth. Hong Kong and Macau are two cities located in the Pearl River Delta that experience a significant flood risk due to storm surges. The increased losses and risks has sparked interest around the...
