Mangroves are an interesting species of vegetation, surviving and thriving at the interface of land and water, in the inter tidal brackish coastal waters between the mean sea level and mean high water. Mangroves are a highly productive and complex ecosystem, providing numerous services and goods to people and marine environment. Mangroves are...

Adaptation planning for flood risk forms a significant part of global climate change response. Engineering responses to higher water levels can be prohibitively costly. Several recent studies emphasize the potential role of ecosystems in flood protection as adaptive risk reduction measures while also contributing to carbon fixation. Here, we...

Over the past decades the effect of vegetation (e.g. kelp, mangroves, sea grass) on nearshore coastal processes has received more and more attention. In recent years several numerical wave models have been extended to include this effect. In the current study, the numerical storm impact model XBeach was extended with formulations found in...

Mangroves are extremely important from the ecological and socio-economic perspectives, but are degrading at an alarming rate nowadays. Besides direct clearance, hydrological alterations or climatic changes, chemical pollution could be a significant contributor of mangrove degradation. To understand chemical pollution in mangroves, the input and...

Indonesia is home to the largest area of mangrove forests in the world. Urban expansion, aquaculture farms, oil-palm plantations and timber extraction have caused an estimated decline of about 1.2 million hectares of Indonesia’s mangroves since the 1980’s, and currently only 3 million hectares remain. The major cause of mangrove conversion is...

The objective of this research is to obtain generic relations between attenuated wave heights and various vegetation and topographical scenarios. Subsequently, it is aimed to find out what is the actual cost profit of a dike construction behind a mangrove zone comparing to the case when mangroves are absent. The graphs and formulas developed in...

Coastal ecosystems such as mangroves can reduce risk to people and infrastructure from wave damage and flooding. The continued provision of these coastal defence services by mangroves is dependent on their capacity to adapt to projected rates of sea level rise. This report explores the capacity of mangrove soil surfaces to increase in elevation...

Storm surges occur when high winds and low atmospheric pressure raise water levels at the coast, causing sea water to surge onto the land. They are a major threat to low-lying coastal areas and their inhabitants. The largest storm surges are caused by tropical cyclones (also called hurricanes and typhoons in different regions); peak water levels...

Verhagen, H.J. (author)
Apart from many ecological advantages, mangroves in front of a coastal defence may lower the construction and maintenance costs of the defence. Although mangroves have hardly any reducing effect on water levels (and on tsunami impact) mangroves may significantly reduce wave attack on a coastal dike, and in this way reduce the cost of a revetment...

Field investigation by Vuong Van Quynh on the dissipation of wave energy in a mangrove field off the coast of southern Vietnam. Based on regression analysis a formula has been developed to determine the wave height decrease as function of the tree density and the tree sizes.

A study of the effectiveness of mangroves in attenuating cyclone- induced waves was done using the SWAN 40.81 numerical model. Hydraulic parameters during extreme events and local mangrove vegetation parameters were estimated for the Kanika Sands mangrove island near the upcoming Dhamra Port in Orissa, India. Simplified generic analyses were...

In Vietnam mangrove rehabilitation has a long history and gained momentum after the war that destroyed huge forested areas, especially in the Mekong Delta. In addition, in various places mangrove have been and still are being planted specifically as a way to protect shorelines and sea-dykes from wave attack. The success of such projects highly...

In dit rapport zijn de geomorfologische en de met de mangrovebegroeiing samenhangende aspecten behandeld, die betrekking hebben op de oevererosie van de Suriname rivier en de Commewijne in hun benedenlopen, met name in het getijde-bereik. De uitkomsten geven aanleiding tot een aantal conclusies en aanbevelingen. In het licht van de voorgenomen...

Environment-friendly bank protection by incorporating mangrove vegetation is a new concept in Thailand. The objectives of the study can be described as to make an inventory of using a systematic approach on environment-friendly bank protection as a case study with mangrove river bank in Thailand and to study on wave damping characteristic by...

There is an increasing awareness of the role of mangrove forests in coastal ecosystems and coastal protection. At the transition between ocean and land, they have to absorb the energy that comes from the motion of the water. Little quantitative in formation is available, however, on wave transmission in these forests. In this paper the...

An analytical mathematical model is presented for flow and salinity in tidal mangrove swamps that is based one-dimensional approaches. The model is designed with the purpose to develop a method for rapid assessment of effects in mangrove swamps due to changes in river discharges that can also be used in situations with few data. A literature...

Mangroves are productive ecosystems, that sustain important fisheries, provide a variety of forest products and harbour millions of resident and migratory birds as well as endangered mammals and reptiles. Reclamation for aquaculture and agriculture is currently considered the main way to achieve development of mangrove areas. These types of...

Depuis une vingtaine d'annees, les mangroves du Sénégal ont intéressé beaucoup de pédologues. Les etudes commencées par J.VIEILLEFON en 1965 ont été développées par C.MARIUS de 1971 à 1983. Conjointement a ces travaux, dans lesquels l'accent est mis sur les facteurs principaux de la pedogenese de ces sols, tels que le soufre et les sels, un...
