A managed realignment is the landward relocation of a flood defence to re-establish tidal exchange on formerly reclaimed land. In a managed realignment, the newly formed intertidal area acts together with the realigned dike as a nature-based flood defence system. In this thesis, the focus is on the managed realignment of Perkpolder, a former...

Organic matter plays a major role in global ecosystems and has several functions in terrestrial and marine environments. As organic matter impacts, among others, the rheological behaviour and settling rates of mineral sediment particles, it is of great relevance to the definition and maintenance of the nautical depth in ports and waterways. The...

Estuaries are the core area of land-sea interactions and have significant ecological and economic value. In estuaries, hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics are the crucial processes governing geomorphology, navigability, and primary production. Since the turn of the 20th century, increased human activities (e.g., damming, dredging, and...

Over the last decades, mangrove forests have suffered immense and rapid losses worldwide. In recognition of their important socio-economic and environmental functions, many attempts have been made to both protect the remaining mangrove coastlines and restore eroding sites. Unfortunately, many rehabilitation attempts have failed, lacking a...

To keep the Panama Canal operational year round, the water level in the canal is maintained above the minimum depth. As water is passed through the locks and into the oceans on either side, the canals main reservoir looses fresh water, and this water is then replaced by the canals secondary reservoir which is Lake Alajuela. The Lake Alajuela...

This thesis analyses the importance and application of considering multiple coexisting wave trains in sediment transport predictions.<br/><br/>The wave trains at offshore and nearshore locations are analyzed by wave spectral partitions (Portilla at el., 2009). The temporal variability of consistently occurring wave trains can be analyzed through...

Coastal areas are subjected to major anthropogenic influences, as they are traditionally economically important regions, which is reflected by the presence of harbours, especially at river mouths. The Dutch coastal area is influenced by the discharge of fresh water from the Rhine river that creates the Rhine Region Of Freshwater Influence (Rhine...

There is a demand by Rijkswaterstaat for CO2-neutral sustainable methods and technologies to maintain the Dutch coastline. The Zandwindmolen is a fixed CO2-neutral dredge, transport and nourishment concept that nourishes sediment continuously. The purpose of using a Zandwindmolen is to provide the entire surrounding area where the Zandwindmolen...

Hydropower plants have proven to generate electricity reliably and predictably, store water to meet water demands during dry periods, improve navigability and reduce flood risk. The reservoirs of these hydropower plants face ongoing sedimentation, negatively effecting the electricity generation, water storage volume, navigability and flood risk....

This research aims to explore sediment transport behavior and accumulation caused by run-of-river weirs in order to examine there feasibility for sustainable sediment mining purposes in the White Volta River. Weirs are used to raise water levels up-stream to increase water levels and storage, but their is little information regarding sediment...

Mangroves are productive ecosystems. Degradation of mangroves has been observed since the 1970s, due to a variety of reasons. Successful rehabilitation focuses on restoring conditions suitable for mangroves. Sediment availability has been shown to positively impact mangrove growth. Therefore, it can likely play a role in mangrove rehabilitation....

Pearson, S.G. (author)
In an era of rising seas and other challenges posed by climate change, coastal regions like the Netherlands are facing ever graver threats. Strategic sand nourishments could mitigate the threat of coastal erosion and sea level rise on barrier island coasts while limiting ecological impacts. However, insufficient knowledge of sediment transport...

Flocculation is an important process in fine cohesive sediment transport that still requires investigation as it is a complex process, involving the aggregation, break-up and reconformation of mineral and biological particles.<br/>Fine cohesive sediments are found in rivers, estuaries and their adjacent areas. With the rapid economic development...

Because the seafloor is a complex ecosystem, a multidisciplinary approach must be adopted in order to produce comprehensive habitat maps. Such multidisciplinary projects have been lacking for the Dutch area of the North Sea. To address this lack, the Distribution, structure and functioning of low resilience seafloor communities and habitats of...

Tailings storage facilities (TSF) are engineered structures that retain mixed waste material (known as mine tailings material) from mining processes in liquid or slurry form. One of the issues regarding TSF management is the lack of site investigation and sample analyses, which cause the uncertainty of geotechnical properties of mine tailings...

The nautical bottom is defined as the level where physical characteristics of the bottom reach a critical limit beyond which contact with a ship’s keel causes either damage or unacceptable effects on the controllability and manoeuvrability of ships. The nautical bottom is usually assessed using the density of the bottom fluid mud layer as a...

Field observations of small scale seabed morphology were obtained over 4 weeks at two locations separated 66 m along a cross-shore transect during the 2014 MEGAPEX Experiment conducted as part of the longer term Sand Engine mega-nourishment project along the North Sea Coast of The Netherlands. The seafloor was continuously covered by dynamic...

Renewable energy installations and energy storage solutions require significant quantities of critical raw materials such as nickel, cobalt and rare earth metals. The supply chains of these raw materials face many difficulties, such as the continuous decrease of mineral ore grades on land. In view of these complications, the motivation to...
