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...

Tidal inlet systems are often highly valuable and sometimes even unique ecosystems. However, field measurements show that tidal inlet systems are sensitive to changing exogenous conditions, such as rising sea levels. This thesis aims to investigate to what extent the adjacent sea influences the stability and equilibrium state of the tidal inlet....

River discharge is an essential parameter in morphodynamic modelling. It proves to be highly variable in both time and space. In this thesis the impact of the schematisation of time-dependent discharge series on morphodynamic change is studied. The impact is governed by several factors such as the long-term discharge statistics, and both short-...

The effective thickness of the bedload layer over a river bed can be schematised as the total volume of bedload sediment that is in transport, divided by the surface. In practice, this layer is considered to have a constant thickness over time. Main question of this thesis is whether this assumption is valid. By analyzing the mass balance, it is...

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 wetlands in the Mississippi delta (USA) are drastically subsiding and eroding. Many projects and researches are ongoing to determine how this “drowning effect” of the delta can be stopped. One of the solutions that could be feasible is implementing sediment diversions in the levees of the Lower Mississippi River in order to divert sediment...
