Feenstra, Thirza (author)
The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS), which stores freshwater equal to more than seven meters of potential sea level rise, strongly interacts with the global, Arctic and North Atlantic climate. In a warming climate, the GrIS has been losing mass and is projected to lose mass at an increasing rate. The interactions between the GrIS and the climate have...

Coastal erosion and flooding are projected to increase during the 21<sup>st</sup> century due to sea-level rise (SLR). To prevent adverse impacts of unmanaged coastal development, national organizations can apply a land protection policy, which consists of acquiring coastal land to avoid further development. Yet, these reserved areas remain...

In this study, we present a novel modeling framework that provides a stylized representation of coastal adaptation and migration dynamics under sea level rise (SLR). We develop an agent-based model that simulates household and government agents adapting to shoreline change and increasing coastal flood risk. This model is coupled to a gravity...

The study explores the potential impact of accelerated sea level rise on coastal flood risk in the Netherlands, particularly focusing on the Plan B NL2200 approach. Sea levels are expected to rise faster than initially thought due to factors like Antarctica's melting ice. The Sea Level Rise Knowledge Program in the Netherlands investigates...

Some of the sediment which is eroded from the Dutch coast ends up in the Wadden Sea. Because of this the morphological development of the Wadden Sea is important, not only for the Wadden Sea itself but also for the maintenance programs of the adjacent coastlines. This is one of the reasons that the morphological development of the Wadden Sea is...

Under growing pressures of climate change, it is vital for our society to implement cost-effective reinforcements in a flood defence system. This thesis proposes a method for optimising reinforcements in a flood defence system with multiple lines of defence under sea level rise.

Jamadar, Zeeshan (author)
Anthropogenic climate change has led to irreversible Sea level rise (SLR), underscoring the urgency to implement adaptation measures. With there being a series of challenges to implement SLR adaptation, international standardisation emerges out to be a solution to address these challenges. In this research, an attempt is made to identify SLR...

The sea level is rising, possibly by one meter, by the end of this century. The Netherlands is preparing for this scenario through Kennisprogramma Zeespiegelstijging (KP-ZSS). One of the goals is to determine the hydraulic effects of sea level rise (SLR) on the current system. For the flood risk analysis within<br/>KP-ZSS, the current strength...

The acceleration of the sea level rise will have an immediate global impact, especially on the Delta works. This projection increases the challenge for flood protection strategies and the existing flood barriers that currently lack adaptation for the higher water level. As an opportunity from the negative outcome of climate change and the most...

Oomens, Robin (author)
Coastal cities and communities are threatened by Sea Level Rise (SLR). Designing adaptations to protect against the rising sea requires a novel approach. With changing conditions, a broader approach considering multiple climate scenarios is required. A city facing an increasing threat from sea levels is Venice, one of the UNESCO world heritage...

van Avendonk, Anne (author)
The flood protection system in the Dutch Delta has to be adapted to accommodate the rising sea levels. When creating potential solutions, it is important to assess their social feasibility. An interesting aspect is the potential difference in opinion between different generations as there is an uneven distribution of the responsibility and...

Teng, Djimin (author)
If sea level rises faster than anticipated in the initial design of rubble mound breakwaters, a serious threat is posed to their functionality. To limit wave overtopping, breakwaters must be adapted to the rising sea level and subsequent increase in wave loading due to reduced depth-induced wave breaking. However, the...

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...

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...

Versteeg, Stanley (author)
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...

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...

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...

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...
