Accurate measurement of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) in highly turbid environments has been a problem due to optical or acoustic signal saturation and attenuation. The saturation returns a limited measurement range, and the attenuation raises an ambiguity problem that a low optical or acoustic output could mean a low or a high SSC....

In highly dynamic and vulnerable tidal systems such as the Wadden Sea, the importance of understanding natural processes and how they are hampered by anthropogenic pressure is highly demanding. Within these processes the sediment transport is one of the most challenging movements to be monitored. With this in mind, suspended particulate matter ...

Henriquez, M. (author)
This thesis is about the hydrodynamic processes that occur when a nearshore sandbar migrates towards the shore driven by the waves. These processes are relevant because process-based morphological models have difficulty simulating coastal accretion events in contrast to erosion events. Simulating accretion events is important for engineering...

Multi-phase flows are ubiquitous in nature and in everyday life surrounding us, impacting us in almost all possible ways. The presence of particles in a flow can change the flow behaviour in an unpredictable manner. The simplest example of a particle-laden flow, that one can think of, is the settling of a single sphere under gravity in a...

The present thesis describes the development of a hybrid behavioural / process-based and wave-averaged model (XBeach Surfbeat) that successfully predicts the recovery of the subaerial beach at Narrabeen Beach, Australia, following a severe storm erosion in April 2015. Two model innovations were developed. Firstly, a behavioural model was...

Canal Emilio Mitre is a navigation channel that runs through the Rio de la Plata estuary in South America. It grants access to the second largest inland waterway system in South America, covering (parts of) Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. The channel is a main bottleneck for navigation for two reasons; the channel has a...

The influence of beach buildings on coastal dune development is still largely unknown, and it could pose a risk to the functionalities coastal dunes provide. The objectives of this research are covered by the main research question: What is the influence of specific types of beach buildings on aeolian coastal dune development and what are...

The management of sediment, soil and water in the Netherlands dates back to<br/>the first settlements in the lower Northern and Western parts of the Netherlands.<br/>Around 500 B.C. farmers constructed ‘terps’ (artificial dwelling mounds) to protect against floodwater. The Romans (50 B.C. – 250 A.C.) reshaped natural waterways, to improve...

The growing awareness of climate change asks for innovation in the methods of applying nourishments at the Dutch coastline. The concept Zandwindmolen has therefore been developed. Using wind mills at sea, sediment is dredged offshore and transported towards the shore, from where hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes redistribute sediment...

In Chile, the Biobío river separates the cities of Concepción and San Pedro de la Paz. Bridges crossing the Biobío river ensure a fast and dependable connection, which contributes to the transport options in the region. With the Biobío region being the second largest contributor to the country's GDP, an unreliable transport network is highly...

The Port of Rotterdam has many old harbours located close to the Rotterdam city center that are no longer suitable to be used for industrial purposes. Meanwhile due to expansion and population growth of the city, more recreational spaces are needed. The idea is to use the abundant dredged material from the Port of Rotterdam to fill in and...

Demak is a regency within the province of Central Java, Indonesia, with a mud-mangrove coast bordering the Java Sea. The region is facing a rapid retreat of the coastline, threatening the livelihood of a large part of the population. The main cause of the erosion is the deforestation of the green belt of mangroves. This has disturbed the...

Accelerated sea level rise (SLR) is predicted to have multiple adverse impacts on the coastal zone, aggravating phenomena such as coastal erosion on sandy coasts. For climate change adaptation planning and informing policy, morphodynamic changes occurring at coastlines are becoming increasingly important. In this study, a calibrated Delft3D...

The project takes the increasingly polluted and flood prone coast line of the Scheldt estuary as the basis for a new coastal condition, centred on the re-composition of the sediment of the river. As a third option between dike raising and depoldering the coastline of Zeeland, a design for a new line of defence is<br/>developed which controls the...

Using an idealized width-averaged model, the influence of spring-neap cycles on the transport and trapping of suspended fine sediment in tide-dominated estuaries is investigated. To this end we introduce a multiple time scale expansion. This provides a mathematically sound argument for treating the fast ebb-flood cycle and the slow spring-neap...

In this thesis, the implementation of a passive, chipless, frequency coded Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tag for bedload transport studies is proposed. The proposed tag will be deployed in the semi-arid Río Colorado river, Bolivia with the aim to develop quantitative sediment transport models that relate transport to grain size. The...

Along river banks, on the transition zone between the river and see, tidal marshes can develop. The tidal marshes accommodate multiple plant and fish species. As a result of the stressful conditions in tidal marshes, unique intertidal ecology develops. However, due to the densifying of the river banks, tidal marshes are disappearing. <br/...

Seafloor characterization using multibeam echosounder (MBES) backscatter data is an active field of research. The observed backscatter curve (OBC) is used in an inversion algorithm with available physics-based models to determine the seafloor geoacoustic parameters. A complication is that the OBC cannot directly be coupled to the modeled...

Regular maintainance dredging is a large expense to the Port of Rotterdam, therefore the installation of sediment traps is considered. By increasing the bathymetry locally, an increase of local accumulation is expected and a decrease deeper in the harbour basin. This thesis describes the functioning of sediment traps in a stratified tidally...

Spaans, Lennard (author)
The beach recovery process determines the resilience of a sandy coast and is an important aspect of the coastal safety. Sediment stored underwater due to storms is transported onshore by the migration of subtidal and intertidal bars under mild wave conditions. The intertidal zone is an im-portant interface, connecting the marine and aeolian zone...
