Coastal dune systems provide valuable functions that are threatened by human activity and climate change. Preserving and strengthening coastal dunes through coastal management and the implementation of interventions require accurate predictions of coastal dune development. The development of coastal dunes is driven by complex interactions...

Machado Lima de Camargo, C. (author)
As a result of climate change, sea level is changing all over the world at unprecedented rates. Sea-level change can have significant impacts on coastal communities, infrastructure and global economy, as most of the major cities are located near to or at the coast. Rising sea levels can lead to, for instance, more severe and more frequent...

Blok, Jochem (author)
The onset of global warming has resulted in significant and potentially irreversible climate changes, exposing coast areas to substantial risks of morphodynamic transformations. Sea level rise (SLR), a consequence of climate change, is inevitable without significant changes tohuman activities. Understanding the impacts of SLR on coastlines and...

Smits, Ruben (author)
Many coasts around the world experience coastal erosion as a result of climate change, lack of sediment supply or human interventions. In the coming decades, coasts will be exposed to increased natural forcing because of climate change and sea level rise, leading to increased risks of coastal flooding and erosion. As sandy coasts are highly...

Besides global warming, climate change is expected to result in (among others) an increased number of extreme precipitation events and a rising sea level. In the future, this can be the cause for an increased number of high river discharge events in combination with high water levels on the North Sea, which goes hand in hand with an increased...

Absolute sea-level rise has become an important topic globally due to climate change. In addition, relative sea-level rise due to the vertical land motion in coastal areas can have a big societal impact. Vertical land motion (VLM) in Southeast Asia includes a tectonically induced component: uplift and subsidence in plate boundary zones where...

Seagrass meadows provide valuable ecosystem services of coastal protection and chemical habitat formation that could help mitigate the impact of sea level rise and ocean acidification. However, the intensification of hydrodynamic forces caused by sea level rise, in addition to habitat degradation threaten the provision of these ecosystem...

Over the course of the last century, storm surge barriers have been built in several countries and proven to be successful in preventing flooding. However, the operation, reliability, and remaining life of these structures have come under increased pressure due to changing demands, intensified utilisation, and climate change. Yet, there is...

Glaciers distinct from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are currently losing mass rapidly with direct and severe impacts on the habitability of some regions on Earth as glacier meltwater contributes to sea-level rise and alters regional water resources in arid regions. In this review, we present the different techniques developed during...

Effects of sea-level rise (SLR) on future peak water levels in tidal deltas and estuaries are largely unknown, despite these areas being densely populated and at high risk of flooding. While the rates of SLR accelerate, many channels simultaneously experience channel deepening for navigation. With globally decreasing sediment supplies, most...

Schrama, Ernst (author)
Ice losses from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have accelerated since the 1990s, accounting for a significant increase in the global mean sea level. Here, we present a new 29-year record of ice sheet mass balance from 1992 to 2020 from the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE). We compare and combine 50 independent...

Trommelen, Joost (author)
Sea level variations and storm surges are expected to increase as a result of climate change. 570 cities and some 800 million people are by 2050 estimated to be exposed to these phenomena when emissions do not decrease (UCCRN, 2018). It is, however, deeply uncertain if and to what extent emissions will decrease. Additionally, the effects of...

Wisse, Niels-Jan (author)
The Oosterschelde has been an area of morphological change for centuries. Both floodings and human influences have caused the Oosterschelde to have its current shape. During the last century before implementation of the Delta plan (1953) the estuary was still expanding as the channels deepened and the tidal flats increased. With the construction...

Rudlang, Julia (author)
The Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) is an important component of the climate system and is a key contributor to future sea level rise, as it is storing frozen water that would raise sea levels by 7.4 m should it all melt (Bamber et al., 2018). Of particular concern is the amount of global warming we are facing now and in the future, as it is becoming...

Hermans, T.H.J. (author)
The sea level is changing around the world due to a combination of complex processes, such as changes in ocean density and circulation, the melt of ice sheets and glaciers, terrestrial water storage and vertical land motion. Projections of how much and how fast sea level will change are crucial information for adaptation planning. At the basis...

El Sayed, Kareem (author)
In this study the contribution of the low-frequency residuals to the sea-level variability has been examined. This is done using 106-year old sea-level record obtained at Hoek van Holland. Computing the mean sea-level per season each year and the corresponding standard deviation one finds an increase in both these features of the sea-level...

The Netherlands, and in particular South–Holland, is to a large extent below sea level, making the region vulnerable to environmental challenges linked to climate change. According to IPCC, a sea-level rise of two to five metres is not excluded, while the Delta committee advised the government recently to not invest in new infrastructure in the...

Sea level rise caused by climate change directly affects and threatens low-lying countries. In August of 2021, the report of the IPCC was published, and the findings were disturbing. The sea could rise by a few meters in the coming centuries, causing floods in large parts of West-Europe. Groeskamp and Kjellson proposed a solution to adapt to the...

Scherpbier, Mieke (author)
Climate change is causing the global sea level to rise. Research and discussion of the effects of sea level rise are often focused along coastlines. However, the effects of higher water level and changing morphodynamics can reach far inland via rivers. This study uses a one-dimensional numerical model to analyze bed level response to sea level...
