In recent years, there has been an increasing need for solutions against the threats that SLR and climate change represent for coastal systems, especially in low lying areas like the SW Dutch coast. Simultaneously, awareness of the impacts that human activities have on natural environments has surged. Integrated and sustainable solutions are...

The world's coasts are at risk: an estimated 24% of the world's beaches are eroding. Extreme events such as storms continuously threaten the coastal region and pose a serious risk of coastal flooding. Under the influence of climate change, the seaward pressures are only expected to increase. Sea level rise is accelerating, storm intensities and...

The Dutch sea water level raised with 24cm over the last 128 years. From a linear increase, we can see an increasing trend since the 1990s. According to recent scientific research, the sea level in the Netherlands will rise 1 to 2 meters by 2100 with a maximum global warming of 2 degrees Celsius. With a temperature rise of 4 degrees, the North...

Estuarine shoals are valuable areas with functions of nature, safety and navigation. It is of utmost importance to understand their underlying physical processes and long-term evolution to achieve protection. The first aim of this report is to determine the impact of wind-waves on long-term morphological development of estuarine shoals. The...

The beach recovery process determines the resilience of a sandy coast and is an important aspect of the coastal safety. Sediment stored underwater due to storms is transported onshore by the migration of subtidal and intertidal bars under mild wave conditions. The intertidal zone is an im-portant interface, connecting the marine and aeolian zone...

Bathymetry strongly affects nearshore hydrodynamics that drive sediment transport. However, recent bed level information is not always available, especially not simultaneously resolved in space and time. Time series of radar backscatter images can be used to retrieve bed levels in the intertidal area with the so-called Temporal Waterline...

The Oesterdam tidal flat nourishment is a hook-shaped nourishment that was constructed in November 2013 in the Kom area of the Eastern Scheldt. One of the objectives of the nourishment is to increase the design life of the Oesterdam in the face of increasing wave loads due to structural erosion of the intertidal flats. A study is conducted in...

Since the completion of the Eastern Scheldt project in 1987, in the south-western part of The Netherlands, there has been a decrease of tidal volume, range and current in the Eastern Scheldt estuary. This has led to morphologic changes in the basin. The channels are in demand of sediment and as the Eastern Scheldt barrier itself blocks most of...

In het kader van een afstudeerproject is een studie verricht naar de morfologische ontwikkeling van de Westerschelde sinds 1650 volgens eendimensionale rekenmodellen. De validatie van dit soort modellen is namelijk een probleem. Van de Westerschelde bestaat weliswaar een groot aantal meerdimensionale modellen, maar door de grote hoeveelheid aan...

Het Sieperdaschor is ontstaan uit de voormalige Selenapolder, nadat in februari '90 tijdens een zware storm de zomerkade is doorgebroken. Reparatie bleek te kostbaar en daarom is in overleg met Zeeuws Landschap besloten om de dijk niet te herstellen. Dit bood een goede gelegenheid om de ontwikkeling van polder tot schor te onderzoeken. Dit mede...
