Since the industrial revolution we have become estranged from the sea. We became opponents instead of working together, and put up high walls to protect ourselves form the vagaries of an unpredictable sea. Somewhere along our path of progress, we lost our human connection to the sea. Before the sea became something we secluded, it was known for...

In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

A cobble sea defence appears to be an easy constructible protection, with relatively low total costs of ownership. Flume tests show that sand under such single layered constructions is stable. However, it is not exactly known how the hydraulic loading of a breaking wave is reducing in the filter. Two datasets containing pressure measurements in...

Coastal zones are highly vulnerable to climate change and its variability. Future projections of global climate change suggest that relative sea-level rise and increased storm frequencies could lead to significant increases in coastal flooding and shoreline erosion. Associated with this, it is likely that coastal hazards can have the potential...
