To protect the coastal system, nourishment of the coast is nowadays being applied more frequently. Within these coastal systems new elements are often implemented to add value to the design without compromising on the function of the design of the nourishment. One of these possible purposes is the creation of an artificial lagoon. However, to be...

Tidal inlet systems are often highly valuable and sometimes even unique ecosystems. However, field measurements show that tidal inlet systems are sensitive to changing exogenous conditions, such as rising sea levels. This thesis aims to investigate to what extent the adjacent sea influences the stability and equilibrium state of the tidal inlet....

Considering scenarios of sea level rise, the sediment budget of the Wadden Sea is of interest for both coastal safety and for the maintenance of values of this unique environment. Sand nourishments are foreseen on the ebb-tidal deltas of the Wadden Sea to increase the sediment budget, which requires us to predict the fate of the nourishment....

Lagoons are connected to the sea by the presence of openings along their barriers. These openings, also known as tidal inlets, can either be natural or man-made and they highly determine the hydrodynamics within the lagoon system. Tidal inlet systems are found worldwide, and many of them are difficult to be understood due to their complex...

In this thesis the equilibrium cross-sectional areas of a tidal inlet are investigated. The most common used methods to study cross-sectional stability are the Escoffier method (Escoffier, 1940) and the Modified Escoffier method (Van de Kreeke, 2004). The Escoffier methods are mainly empirical and lack physical justification. Therefore, in this...

Sandy barriers comprise 12% of coastlines around the world, and most of these barriers enclose tidal bays and lagoons. These systems accommodate human settlements vulnerable to climate change, which offer enough economic, social, and environmental utility to require further research on the impact of climate change and subsequent best management...

In the coastal defence of the Netherlands, sand nourishment is a common practice. Part of the Dutch coastal system, the Wadden Sea coast, is a very complicated coastal system in terms of hydrodynamics and morphodynamics. Many different processes are playing a role in the coastal dynamics in the Wadden Sea area. The execution of a mega...

The St Lucia Estuary is Africa’s largest estuarine system and part of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in December 1999. The St Lucia Estuary is connected upstream to Lake St Lucia and downstream it flows into the Indian Ocean. The St Lucia Estuary is located at a wave dominated coast...

Sea level rise poses challenges to the tidal inlet systems of the Wadden Sea, including the barrier islands. If no measures are taken, the shorelines of the islands will retreat and the basins may drown. In the Ameland Inlet, the Boschplaat at the eastern tip of Ameland and Bornrif at the western tip of Terschelling are currently shrinking. <br/...

The main goal of this project is to predict the in uence of non-uniform basin depths on the stability of single inlet systems. This is achieved by making use of Escoffier's principle, which poses a relationship between the relative water flow velocity in an inlet and the rate of change of its cross-sectional area. To this end, a thorough...

Rijkenberg, L. (author)
Tidal inlet systems are found all over the world. These highly dynamic coastal features can be classified into three main types wave-dominated, tide-dominated or river-dominated tidal inlet systems. A tidal inlet is described as an opening in the shoreline that provides a connection between the ocean and a bay and is maintained by tidal currents...

At the construction of 'Maasvlakte 2' in 2012, two sand closures were constructed. Sand is in most cases the most profiting construction material. The processes and the amount of sand losses which occur during the construction of a closure contain large uncertainties. In order to construct a closure, the production of sand has to be larger than...

With the development of a process-based model (Delft3D) of the St Lucia Estuary inlet, a first approach is made with regard to the estuary mouth dynamics and closure mechanisms that are observed at St Lucia inlet. The purpose of this thesis is to get a better understanding of the hydrodynamic and morphological behaviour of the St Lucia inlet...

The Lagos coast has been suffering high rates of erosion since the construction of three harbour moles, i.e. the West Mole, East Mole and the Training Mole, at the tidal inlet connecting the Lagos Lagoon to the South Atlantic Ocean. To provide for a permanent erosion mitigation measure and to create residential and commercial area for circa 400...

The Lai Giang inlet located in Binh Dinh province incorporates various features of the estuaries in the Central part of Vietnam. Belonging to the micro-tidal and wave-dominant coast and influenced by the monsoon regime, the inlet has a seasonal character. During the dry season, as the river flow diminishes, the wave action causes high level of...

Master project report. The hydraulic efficiency of the river Araranguá will be increased by the construction of jetties at the mouth of the river. The river tends to migrate from south to north which decreases the hydraulic efficiency and causes flooding upstream during events of high discharge. To stop the migration the construction of jetties...

Barrier island coasts are a common feature in many parts of the world. An example is the Wadden coast of The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. These coasts consist of barrier islands separated by tidal inlets with at the landward side tidal basins.Characteristic for the Wadden Sea is that the tidal basins are not completely separated,but are...

Door Rijkswaterstaat wordt de laatste jaren steeds meer aandacht besteed aan de natuurlijke processen die in de kustzone plaatsvinden. Daar waar mogelijk wordt de ontwikkeling van de kust overgelaten aan zijn natuurlijke dynamiek. Door dit beleid krijgen duinvalleien en slufter langs de Nederlandse kust weer een kans zich te ontwikkelen. Een...

Along the majority of the worlds shoreline, tidal inlet systems represent a common morphological feature. Like in the Wadden Sea, which forms one of the major intertidal areas on the Earth, they are found along barrier islands coasts and they play a significant role in the sediment budget of the coastal zone. Tidal inlets are highly dynamic...

In the tidal inlets in the Dutch Wadden Sea, the most important sediment types are sand, silt and clay. A distinction between the sediment types is made, because clay particles have cohesive properties. Consequently, the clay particles do not behave as individual particles but tend to stick together. Floes are formed whose size and settling...
