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...

The increasingly active role of stakeholders in the development of innovative nature-based solutions calls for appropriate instruments to support and realise added value from their involvement. In this paper we apply a newly developed instrument “Cooperation for Added Value” (Co-Add) to a study area on the Dutch coast. The instrument draws on...

The sediment exchange between the Dutch Wadden Sea and the North Sea coastal zone is of key importance to Dutch coastal management. Net sediment import from the coastal zone to the Wadden Sea results in coastal erosion which needs to be compensated through nourishments. At the same time net sediment import is the source of sediment for the...

For successful and sustainable management of barrier islands, a thorough understanding of the ebb-tidal delta dynamics and interactions with the adjacent shorelines are of the utmost importance. Such understanding requires detailed observations and interpretations of the morphodynamics of smaller-scale features such as the individual channels...

The overarching aim of this research is to contribute towards a best practice in modelling meso-scale O(10km), medium-term O(5yrs.) morphological features in Tidal & Estuarine environments. Therefore, various modelling aspects and stages are reviewed. The first pillar argues the need for numerical models in the...

The Wadden Sea is a large system of tidal flats and barrier islands. Its individual features have been heavily researched, but sufficient knowledge on the sediment transport patterns on the scale of the Wadden Sea is not yet available. This thesis aims to indicate the dominant sediment transport patterns in the Dutch Wadden Sea and the...

A significant part of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Dutch have protected their land against seawater since the 10th century. Nowadays, the Netherlands is protected by 3800 km of primary flood defences. Since the Flood Defences Act was included in the Dutch law in 1996, all flood defences are tested against the national safety...

Multiple tidal inlet systems like the Wadden Sea have long been considered as separated basins, bordered by so-called tidal divides. Recently, it was however shown that fluxes of water and sediment occur over the borders of these basins, especially during wind events. In this paper, the wind-driven fluxes over these borders and the residual...

Human interventions and climate change can heavily influence the large-scale morphological development of tidal basins. This has implications on sediment management strategies, as well as ecological and recreational purposes. Examples of heavily impacted tidal basins are those in the Western Dutch Wadden Sea. The closure of a large sub-basin...

In this paper, we introduce and test a framework to qualitatively assess the environmental impact of climate adaptation innovations with the ambition to facilitate the implementation of these adaptations. The framework was designed to enable continuous environmentally conscious benchmarking based on three environmental performance indicators:...

The extreme character of human activities and hard infrastructures in combination with the continuous variation of the climate has triggered an unprecedented fast rate of alterations in the environment. Hereafter the anthropogenically magnified climate change is increasing stress on ecosystems; especially interfaces such as coastal areas are in...

Natural and man-induced coastal erosion endanger life and environment in coastal areas worldwide. For sedimentary barrier coasts, beach and underwater nourishments are an efficient coastal protection strategy. To optimize nourishments and to understand their impact on the marine environment, monitoring strategies are required. In this study,...

In 2015, the worlds first zero-emission sea-going ferry was launched in Norway. This ferry, MF Ampere, is powered by batteries and is sailing in an UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the Netherlands, the Wadden Sea is an UNESCO World Heritage Site with multiple ferry routes where the most recent ferries are sailing on natural gas to reduce emissions...

For the design of coastal structures, the hydraulic loads that act on the coast should be known. These are often based on extrapolation of measurements. However, if the physical relation is unknown, large errors could be made. Therefore, a numerical model can be set up to take the most important processes into account.Yet, uncertainties are...

The Dutch sea water level raised with 24cm over the last 128 years. From a linear increase, we can see an increasing trend since the 1990s. According to recent scientific research, the sea level in the Netherlands will rise 1 to 2 meters by 2100 with a maximum global warming of 2 degrees Celsius. With a temperature rise of 4 degrees, the North...

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 ...

The Netherlands is often depicted as a battleground, with the Dutch in a constant struggle against the water that surrounds them. This project examines this tradition in the context of the Wadden Sea and the island of Schiermonnikoog, where this battle between the land and the sea is at its most extreme.<br/><br/>This project traces the myth of ...

The North Sea has played an important role in European urbanization. Coastal cities thrive on the basis of port economy; but also shrink significantly once the dominated industry recessed. Today, under the threat of climate change, port-dominated homogenous development becomes rather vulnerable to disturbances. Den Helder is the Wadden port-city...

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....

Ameland inlet is centrally located in the chain of West Frisian Islands (the Netherlands). A globally unique dataset of detailed bathymetric charts starting in the early 19th century, and high-resolution digital data since 1986 allows for detailed investigations of the ebb-tidal delta morphodynamics and sediment bypassing over a wide range of...
