Globally coasts are under pressure owing to stressors such as human use and climate change. From the 1970s onwards, Integrated Coastal Management gradually emerged as a strategic approach that strives for sustainable integration of the sometimes conflicting interests of human use, natural values and protection against flooding. Developing and...

<br/>In response to the sharp decline of seagrass globally, various restoration techniques have been developed and applied; many at limited scale and with limited success. This research focuses on the fluid mechanics and behaviour of seagrass seeds in a sand mixture through physical laboratory experiments. The objective is to establish a...

Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

Over the past century, the main channel of the Waal has experienced erosion of approx-imately 1-2 metres (Ylla Arb´os et al., 2021; Chowdhury et al., 2023). This erosion leads to various problems such as instability of struc-tures or disruption to shipping. To address this ongoing degradation, a potential solution is the implementation of...

Working as natural filter, well-designed vegetation schemes have been widely applied to improve the quality of water (Aiona, 2013; Stefanakis, 2015). Proper design, however, requires appropriate physics-based modelling of their filtering capacity. Several theoretical models predicting sediment transport in vegetated flow have been proposed:...

Sand waves are found on shallow, sandy seabeds throughout the world and their dynamics may pose an imminent threat to offshore construction. Therefore, there is a pressing need to understand bed level dynamics in sand wave areas. These bed level dynamics lead to variations in sand wave shape and migration rate over time. However, these...

Creeks are essential for salt marshes by conveying water and sediment through this geomorphic system. In this paper, we investigate the mechanisms that determine the residual sediment flux using measurements conducted in tidal creeks in salt marshes of the Yangtze Estuary. A main creek and a secondary creek were studied to explore whether the...

Cable bacteria can reach high densities in coastal sediments, and as a result of their unusual electrogenic lifestyle and intense metabolic activity, exert a major and distinct impact on biogeochemical cycling, both locally in sediments and at the ecosystem level. This appears to be particularly true for seasonally hypoxic systems, but the...

The riverine transport and deposition of mud is the primary agent of landscape construction and evolution in many fluvial and coastal environments. Previous efforts exploring this process have raised uncertainty regarding the effects of hydrodynamic and chemical controls on the transport and deposition of mud, and thus the constructions of...

Muddy sediment constitutes a major fraction of the suspended sediment mass carried by the Mississippi River. Thus, adequate knowledge of the transport dynamics of suspended mud in this region is critical in devising efficient management plans for coastal Louisiana. We conducted laboratory tank experiments on the sediment suspended in the...

Backward erosion piping (BEP) is a failure mechanism of hydraulic structures like dams and levees on cohesionless foundations subjected to seepage flows. This article models the time-dependent development of BEP using numerical simulation of the erosion process. A 3-dimensional finite element equilibrium BEP model is extended with a...

Marsh creeks are perceived as important conduits for transporting water and sediment between mudflats and marshes. In order to advance the understanding of the transport mechanisms in creeks, the source and ultimate sink of sediment which moves between mudflats and marshes through creek channels need further investigation. Therefore, two...

The world’s coasts and deltas are progressively threatened by climate change and human activities. The degree at which coastlines can adapt to these changes strongly depends on the sediment availability. The availability of muddy sediments is however poorly known. This study aims at developing a mud budget for the world’s largest system of...

Instead of maintenance dredging, an alternative option for port authorities is to adapt the PIANC's nautical bottom approach. For practical purposes, the nautical bottom is defined as the level at which the fluid mud reaches either a critical density or a critical yield stress (the shear strength). These values generally correspond to a level at...

Coandă-effect-based collection stands out as the foremost technology in polymetallic-nodule mining due to the absence of direct contact between the collector and the ocean floor. Yet, this collection method disturbs the ocean floor, and minimizing such disturbance is crucial from an environmental viewpoint. To this end, a solid understanding of...

In this work a high-magnification digital video camera in combination with a settling column is used to study in a first part the influence of the amount of flocs transferred into the settling column on their settling velocity. In a second part, the setup was used to study the properties of flocs prepared at different clay concentrations but at...

The hydropower development in the Mekong Basin affects the silt and clay concentrations in the river which has ecological as well as socio-economic effects on the Mekong Delta and its inhabitants. Therefore, the first objective of this research was to obtain a better understanding of the effect of hydropower development on the silt and clay load...

Mangrove forests are important wetland ecosystems that inhabit intertidal zones within tropical and sub-tropical latitudes. They offer a diverse array of ecosystem services, including coastal protection and carbon sequestration. Despite their significance, global mangrove cover has declined in recent decades, prompting various restoration...

Playa Unión and Puerto Rawson are facing severe coastal erosion and increasingly the negative effects. Since the first half of the 20th century there have been signs of erosion, but also of sedimentation. However, the coastline in the project area is retreating over the years. The situation has recently been declared an emergency. Furthermore,...
