Adaptation planning for flood risk forms a significant part of global climate change response. Engineering responses to higher water levels can be prohibitively costly. Several recent studies emphasize the potential role of ecosystems in flood protection as adaptive risk reduction measures while also contributing to carbon fixation. Here, we...

This study presents an intercomparison of a SWAN and SWASH wave model and 3D laboratory experiments for an existing navigation channel towards a harbor. Results show that the spectral refraction model SWAN underestimates the wave conditions in the channel and at the lee side of the channel especially - for longer waves travelling under a small...

This paper presents the application of new source terms in SWAN for the dominant water wave physics in the coastal zone: depth-induced breaking and triad wave-wave interactions. We present results demonstrating increased modelling skill in the prediction of bulk wave parameters e.g. significant wave height and of the spectral shape compared to...

Hurricane Ike (2008) made landfall near Galveston, Texas, as a moderate intensity storm. Its large wind field in conjunction with the Louisiana-Texas coastline's broad shelf and large scale concave geometry generated waves and surge that impacted over 1000 km of coastline. Ike's complex and varied wave and surge response physics included: the...

Large parts of the Danube Delta coast suffered severe erosion during last decades due to both natural trends and human interventions. To investigate and quantify the processes controlling the Danube Delta coast evolution a systematic approach was employed. First, a hindcast of the wave climate was simulated using the numerical model SWAN and...

Suzuki, T. (author)
It has been widely recognized that ongoing climate change, most likely due to human interference with nature, may accelerate sea level rise and increase storm intensity. It is therefore urgent to design countermeasures to alleviate the impact of climate change on coastal regions. Apart from the view point of coastal protection, it is also very...

Over the last five years a research program has been carried out to assess the performance of the spectral wave model SWAN in the Wadden Sea so that it may be used for the transformation of offshore wave conditions to wave boundary conditions near the sea defenses (dikes and dunes). The assessment was done on the basis of extensive wave...

The present study aims to assess the prediction of wave penetration into tidal inlets under ambient current in SWAN. The performance of SWAN in the modelling of wave-current interaction was studied for two field cases, namely Port Phillip Bay Heads, Australia, and the Amelander Zeegat in the Dutch Wadden Sea. In-situ wave observations were...

In the framework of the SBW (Strength and Loading of Water Defenses) project which Deltares has been commissioned to execute for Rijkswaterstaat – Waterdienst, Rijkswaterstaat has requested a hindcast of the 1st November 2006 storm as part of the International Data Exchange Project, in this case an exchange between Netherlands and Germany. This...

The spectral wind wave model SWAN (Booij et al. 1999) plays a key role in the estimation of the Hydraulic Boundary Conditions (HBC) for the primary sea defences of the Netherlands. Since some uncertainty remains with respect to the reliability of the wind wave model SWAN for application to the geographically complex area of the Wadden Sea, a...

Results of hindcast studies with the SWAN wave model in the Amelander Zeegat, the Oosterschelde estuary and the Slotermeer were analyzed to detect the cause of under-prediction of low-frequency wave energy in the coastal zone, the causes of prediction errors in the presence of currents and the underprediction of wave heights In depth-limited...

Modern design formula for coastal structures (like rock stability formula and overtopping formula use wave parameters (H2% and Tm-1,0) which are not readily available from standard boundary condition wave data. For transforming values like Hs and Tp to the parameters used in the new formulas, often-fixed conversion factors are used. However,...

This report concerns the hindcast study of the SWAN wave model for two storms in the inlet of the Eastern Scheldt, including the selection of the storms. The aim of the study is the performance of SWAN with respect to the wave penetration of combined swell and wind sea into the inlet.

During the storm season from October 2006 untill April 2007 several severe storms occurred at the North Sea. Three storm periods are selected to study the realiability of the SWAN wave model by means of a hindcast. The objective of this hindcast is to gain insight into the performance of the SWAN model, especially under storm conditions for the...

The goal of the uncertainty analyses within the SBW Wadden Sea project is to find out which accuracy in HBC can be achieved, given the current state of scientific knowledge and technical instruments. Furthermore, we wish to quantify the contribution of the SWAN model and other components to the overall uncertainty in HBC. In order to answer...
