The climate goals for 2020, that multiple countries in the world signed, are coming closer. Like many other countries, the Netherlands has difficulties reaching their climate goal. A solution came from the Paris agreement in 2015, which sets new goals for 2030, and eventually for the long term in 2050. This time the Netherlands is eager to reach...

Ho Chi Minh City is flooded on a regular basis due to the lack of flood protection. Plans have been made to protect the city from flooding in the future and therefore a barrier is built at Phu Dinh. This barrier needs to fulfil three requirements. Firstly it should protect HCMC against a flood, as well resulting from tidal waves as from peak...

To counteract relative sea level rise, Rijkswaterstaat nourishes the Dutch coast with sand. This sand spreads out over the shoreface zone, beach and dunes. One of the nourishment types is the shoreface nourishment. In this thesis, data of historical shoreface nourishments along the Dutch coast is analysed to find the factors that influence this...

The city of Hoboken, New Jersey, suffers from flood risk by sea level rise, storm surge and storm water. Due to its position it is well connected to the metropolitan network, but also cut off from its direct surroundings. This has led to both spatial and social segregation. This project uses the Dutch approach towards flood risk, where water has...

The storm surge barrier and levees located in the Hollandsche IJssel do not fulfill the current safety standards according to the third nationwide safety assessment. The non-closure probability of the storm surge barrier is too high and the inner slope stability of the levees is too low. Besides the problems regarding the flooding safety also...

Bangladesh, located on the northern littoral of the Bay of Bengal, is one of the most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change and sea level rise. Agriculture is the prime economic activity in the densely populated coastal areas of the country. During the dry season of the year (November to April), when rainfall is low, the...

After the disastrous floods in 1953 in the Netherlands, measures are taken to improve the safety in the Netherlands. In the Southwest of the Netherlands a couple of tidal basins are closed by the construction of dams and storm surge barriers. The closure of tidal basins shortens the coastal length and can result in a cost reduction comparing...

Viet Nam lies in the region of direct impact of sea level rise and climate change, especially in the East Sea where branches of Me Kong river run off. In the annual report on “Climate change and sea level rise in Viet Nam” MONRE has proposed 3 scenarios of sea level rise in the next 100 years viz. 60 cm (low emission scenario), 75 cm (medium...

Research done by the IPCC working groups and other organizations has sparked global concern over the possible impacts of climate change and corresponding sea level rise upon coastal communities. In reaction global studies were done (Nicholls et al., 2008, Hanson et al., 2011) to assess the vulnerability of coastal regions. However, most of these...

Sea level is rising across the UK and this is expected to accelerate and to increase coastal flood risk over the 21st century. Southampton is one of the busiest and most important national ports, but coastal flooding has not been studied extensively before. This dissertation aims to investigate the likelihood of coastal flooding in Southampton...

The increase in trade and economies of scale has influenced ports in respect to the growth and services they provide. Ports as trade commercial centres, in which international markets and national economies meet, must start considering how the impacts of extreme climate change influence their port management and operations. This particular study...

The rise of sea level increases the risk of coastal flooding by increasing the probability of occurrence of flood event at a given height. The essence of coastal planning and management in the future relies on an accurate coastal flood risk assessment with regards to sea level rise. Through the set up of flood risk assessment model in Geographic...

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...

The rise of sea level (18 to 91 cm in South Australia by the end of the 21st century) will result in beach erosion and, hence, poses a significant risk to the beaches of southeast Australia. This risk can be mitigated by means of beach nourishment. The costs of applying beach nourishment to the coast of southeast Australia in the 21st century...

The aim of the Strength and Loading of Coastal Structures (SBW) project is to improve the models to derive the Hydraulic Boundary Conditions which are determined along the Dutch coast once per five years. The Amelander inlet is chosen as area of interest in the Wadden Sea. As the Amelander Inlet is morphologically a very active area, this study...

It is the policy of the Dutch government to aim at the extraction of gas from the smaller gas fields in The Netherlands to spare the large Slochteren field in Groningen. The gas reservoirs below the Wadden Sea are counted among the smaller fields. Their capacity is estimated to 200 thousand million cubic metres, and their economic value is equal...

De temperatuur op aarde stijgt. Een gevolg van deze temperatuurstijging is zeespiegelstijging. Een ander gevolg zou kunnen zijn dat de weersomstandigheden kunnen veranderen. De gemiddelde windkracht zou kunnen toenemen waardoor de golfhoogtes kunnen toenemen. Ook de gemiddelde windrichting zou kunnen veranderen. Een en ander zal gevolgen hebben...
