In process-based numerical models, reducing the amount of input parameters, known as input reduction (IR), is often required to reduce the computational effort of these models and to enable long-term, ensemble predictions. Currently, a comprehensive performance assessment of IR-methods is lacking, which hampers guidance on selecting suitable...

This study analyses the distribution of ocean wind waves in response to extratropi- cal cyclones over the western Mediterranean Sea. To this end we use an ERA40-based database of atmospheric cyclones and a 3-hourly wind wave hind- cast with high horizontal resolution (1/6  ) based on an ERA40 downscaled forcing for the region of study. The...

The coastal waters of Nigeria are a difficult environment to build structures to control the local morphology and hydrodynamic conditions to ones desire. This difficulty is a consequence of the persistent high-energy swell wave climate and Longshore Sediment Transport (LST) in the order of one million cubic metres per<br/>year. Besides these...

Predictions of coastal morphology evolution are necessary to assess engineering solutions as well as understand coastal systems behaviors. Among the tools used to predict morphological evolution are the process-based models that make use of physical laws and empirical knowledge. Such models account for a considerable range of coastal processes...

Kwant, M.D. (author)
The objective of this thesis was analyzing and evaluating different sources of wave data. Wave data from two hindcasts, satellite altimetry and wave buoys were compared with each other in order to validate different data sets. These datasets provided to be useful tools in determining the wave climate along the coast of Myanmar.

In this thesis 6 wave climate reduction methods are described and evaluated. Of these methods, 3 are commonly used in literature and 3 are machine learning methods that are adjusted so that they can be used for the reduction of a wave climate. The evaluation is executed with the use of a Delft3D model of the coast of Durban, South Africa.

This study presents an analysis of the planform stability of the complex embayed beach system of Da Nang Bay, central Vietnam. As a result of the intensification of extreme weather conditions and human activities in this area (e.g. land reclamation, river damming, and coastal structures), coastal safety as well as economic and ecological values...

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...

Problem definition The city Mar del Plata has one of Argentina's largest ports and biggest seaside beach resort. After the construction of the port, a steadily growing sandbank appeared in the port entrance and considerable erosion occurred on the northern beaches. To warrant the accessibility of the port, frequent maintenance dredging is needed...

In the entrance of the estuary of the Western Scheldt (defined as the area between Vlissingen and Terneuzen), wave conditions are dominated by local wind conditions rather than by wave conditions at the North Sea. This is caused by the presence of the ebb tidal delta in front of the entrance. Waves influence the simulated morphology by eroding...

Nguyen Thi Thu, H. (author)
Among a variety of elements, the nearshore wave elimate is considered to be the most important aspect to explain erosion problems along the coast. Oue to the fact that available data is limited, numerical models are valuable and necessary tools to apply. This study is initiated with the main objective to study the nearshore wave elimate of the...

Om problemen betreffende ruimtetekort in de Rotterdamse haven het hoofd te bieden wordt onderzocht of een nieuw haventerrein voor de kust kan worden aangelegd, de TweedeMaasvlakte. Dit terrein moet voldoende worden beschermd tegen golven afkomstig uit zee en hoge waterstanden. Om golfbrekers en andere civieltechnische constructies ten behoeve...

Repko, A. (author)
For the probability-based design and assesment of marine structures interacting with sea waves, a reliable knowledge of the long-term wave climate is required. Wave climate data are commonly presented in the form of histograms of spectral wave parameters. The severity of a sea state is usually expressed in terms of significant wave height H, and...

This report provides revised wave information at 108 nearshore locations along the US Atlantic coastline and 3 stations along the north coast of Puerto Rico. It supersedes information provided in WIS Reports 2, 6, and 9. The information is derived from wind fields developed in a previous hindcast for the period 1956-1975 and the present version...

In dit rapport wordt het golfklimaat bepaald voor het gebied ten noorden van de noorderdam bij Hoek van Holland. Volgens een der varianten van de commissie Borgman zal op deze plaats een ingang komen naar een achterliggend bekken dat in open verbinding staat met de zee. In de voorliggende studie is voor het opzetten van een golfklimaatstudie op...
