Recently, mega feeder nourishments have been proposed as a new strategy to nourish sediment-starving beaches. This strategy involves the placement of a large, concentrated sediment volume at a single location along the coast. Wind, waves and currents act as the natural agents to spread the sediment alongshore over the course of years to decades....

All over the world coastal communities are at risk due to sea-level rise and intensifying weather conditions. Many sandy beaches are eroding as a result of human-induced factors. Currently, the preferred coastal protection measure in the United States are beach nourishments. In Europe, there also is a general shift from hard to soft coastal...

Sand nourishment is widely adopted as an effective soft approach to provide long-term coastal safety, protect the ecology environment, and promote tourism and recreation. With the increase in frequency and expenses in beach nourishment worldwide, an adequate prediction of morphology evolution is greatly desired for coastline management. Based on...

The Hondsbossche Dunes is a seven-kilometre-long dune, beach and shoreface nourishment that serves as a primary flood defence since 2015. In addition to its protective function, the Hondsbossche Dunes stimulate ecological habitat development in the coastal area, in line with Ecoshape's 'Building with Nature'-approach. Its morphologic development...

Mega nourishments are a novel approach to stimulating coastal safety and resilience. Mega nourishments are intended to spread along the coast on a decadal time scale by natural sediment transport processes with a minimum of intrusion into the natural coastal system. The supratidal morphodynamic behaviour of mega nourishments is not well...

Arends, Inge (author)
In 2003 certain areas of the Dutch coast were found not to meet contemporary safety standards, as a result of erosion that occurred over the last century. One of these 'weak links' stretches from Camperduin to Petten and is known as the Hondsebossche Pettemer Zeewering; a former 'hard' sea dyke with a stone revetment. To fortify this 12...

Mega-nourishments, aiming at providing long-term coastal safety, nature qualities and recreational space, have been applied recently at the Holland coast and are considered at various other places in the world. Methods to quickly evaluate the potential and lifetime of these coastal mega nourishments are therefore very much desired, which is...

Sea level rise poses challenges to the tidal inlet systems of the Wadden Sea, including the barrier islands. If no measures are taken, the shorelines of the islands will retreat and the basins may drown. In the Ameland Inlet, the Boschplaat at the eastern tip of Ameland and Bornrif at the western tip of Terschelling are currently shrinking. <br/...

Mega nourishments are intended to enhance growth and resilience of coastal dunes on medium to long time scales by stimulation of natural sediment transport processes. The growth and resilience of coastal dunes largely depends on the presence of a continuous supply of aeolian sediment. A recent example of a mega nourishment is the 21 Mm<sup>3<...

The coastal protection system of the Dutch low-lying hinterland is under increasing pressure due to growing population and high economic value combined with climate change and a rising sea level. Supplying sand to dunes, beach and shoreface by means of nourishments is a widely applied technique to increase coastal safety. Climate change and a...

This study presents some recent developments in coastal morphological modeling focusing on flexible meshes, flexible coupling between models operating at different time scales, and a recently developed morphodynamic model for the intertidal and dry beach. This integrated modeling approach is applied to the Sand Engine mega nourishment in The...

Recently an innovative nourishment method has been applied as a counter measure for coastal recession in the Netherlands. This soft engineering solution, also known as the Sand Engine, consists of a shoreline perturbation of $21.5$ Mm\textsuperscript{3} sand which will be redistributed along the shore by the natural forces of waves, tides and...

Large (mega-scale) nourishments have been proposed as a promising alternative for traditional beach and shoreface nourishments, especially for locations with large structural erosion and sufficient sediment to dredge. This paper examines the initial bathymetric evolution of the Sand Engine, a mega-nourishment of 17 million m3 protruding almost 1...

The Sand Motor is a pilot project of a ‘mega-nourishment’ built in the Dutch coast in 2011. In order to understand which conditions reshape those mega-nourishments the influence of different types of forcing on the longshore sediment transport along the Sand Motor has been assessed in this paper using a process-based model. The use of numerical...

The objective of this thesis is to investigate the role of different hydrodynamic and morphological factors influencing sediment transport patterns at the Sand Motor in order to give insight in processes controlling the short-term sand bar morphodynamics and the long term development of the Sand Motor. The work presents an analysis of the...

The goal of a sediment tracer is to give quantitative or relative feedback on (coastal) morphological changes or track either sediment or other particles (e.g. contaminations) in sediment dynamic environments. A sediment tracer is a visible or invisible marked (sediment) grain that is artificially injected or is present in-situ. This Master...

In 2003, a first proposal for identification of seaward development, preliminary in combination with residential building, was presented in the Chamber of Deputies and within the States-Provincial (South-Holland), by respectively Geluk and Waterman. In response to this proposition, the ministry started an investigation, but concluded there was...
