Lagoons are connected to the sea by the presence of openings along their barriers. These openings, also known as tidal inlets, can either be natural or man-made and they highly determine the hydrodynamics within the lagoon system. Tidal inlet systems are found worldwide, and many of them are difficult to be understood due to their complex...

Methods for decision support in the context of deep uncertainty have been gaining interest in the context of complex and adaptive problems that are characterized by “tipping point” behaviours. Unlike a traditional “predict-then-act” methods, which determine policies based on specific predictions of future behaviour, these decision support...

After the big flood in 1953 the Grevelingendam and the Brouwersdam were built as a part of the ‘Deltawerken’. By constructing these dams the Grevelingen was separated from the North Sea, which created the largest salt water lake in Europe. Several decades later it was discovered that during hot summers the deeper areas of the lake were leaking...

Citizens in 2050 will face a scala of mental health problems. Future unemployment caused by automation of jobs will evoke the lack of feeling a purpose or feeling useful for society. This will especially be the case for the lower-educated and less wealthy part of the population. Living in a city that will get denser and denser, the population...

The objective of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the morphological behaviour of a sandy foreshore in the Markermeer, along the Houtribdijk. The research is primarily based on monitoring data obtained from the Building with Nature (EcoShape) project “Pilot Houtribdijk”. The focus is on the morphological development of the...

Coastal zones are extensively used by humans for work, living and recreation. About three billion people live and work within a couple of hundred kilometers from a coastline. In addition the coast is an important breeding zone for marine species. This is also the case at Lake Bardawil. Lake Bardawil is a relatively large lake on the north-west...

The United States of America – and more specific the state of Illinois – are dealing with a problem of Asian carps spreading from inward waterways to the Great Lakes. The Asian carp was originally brought to America to be used in study?s on agricultural pounds, but escaped after series of flooding. The Asian carp has no natural enemies in the...

This document includes a survey whether the wind set-up formula is valid and accurate in case of irregularly shaped lakes with a strong varying water depth. The formula is designed for a pure theoretical situation, the question is whether the formula is valid in situations that differ a lot from the theoretical one. The research is carried out...

Mass changes derived from GRACE satellite data indicate that there is a large water mass loss in Northern Iraq between 2006 and 2009. In the same period Northern Iraq suffered a severe drought , which is likely to be the main driving factor behind those water mass losses. But where does this mass change exactly come from? Is it groundwater or...

This study is aiming to improve the understanding of hydrodynamic circulation in large shallow lakes. The Lake Taihu, the third largest lake in east China, is picked up as the study area for three reasons. The basin of Lake Taihu is considered as the most populated and developed area as a backyard of Shanghai. Lake Taihu is a typical shallow...

Using the Urumia lake water allocation problem as a case study, a conflict analysis method was applied to look for possibilities to resolve the problem of conflicting demands for water. First a thorough overview of the problem was made by describing the Urumia lake basin and the human activities therein as a Large Technical System. After the...

Port of Rotterdam Authority decided to construct Maasvlakte 2 to cope with demand for port areas. Maasvlakte 2 is a business case driven project. The outcome of the business case has led to the construction of an entire sea defense and the realization of port areas in phases, in response to client demand. The phased development results in the...

Upper Ordovician glaciogenic rocks from Block-NC186, in the Murzuq Basin, SW Libya, represent important hydrocarbon reservoirs. The producing reservoirs are found in glacial incisions filled by the Melaz Shuqran and Mamuniyat formations. These formations present complex reservoir architecture and high sediment heterogeneity. Understanding the...

In this study, a process-based, depth-averaged Delft3D hydrodynamic and morphologic model of the Wax Lake Delta in Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana was developed to simulate a five year period of delta development. The purpose of this modeling effort was to test the ability of process-based modeling tools to successfully simulate typical delta...

The area of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. A large part of the city got flooded due to bad design, construction and maintenance of the levee system. In order to increase the level of protection of the city, the levees are heightened and strengthened in the framework of the Hurricane and Storm Damage and Risk Reduction...

It is important for dams and dikes planning to take the generation of waves within their reservoir into account. However, the theories used to determine the characteristics of those wind-generated waves often rely on conditions applicable in open sea. This paper will try to investigate their applicability to conditions present in reservoirs and...

The east coast of Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela intersects with three large oil fields, Tia Juana, Lagunillas and Bachaquero. Formerly, the coast was low, but still not defended. Since the start of oil production in 1926, both the land and the lake bottom subsided. A dike had to bring protection: the origin of the three polders in the present...
