The tide-dominated Scheldt estuary is located in the southwest of the Netherlands. From the Dutch-Belgian border seawards, it consists of a system of channels and shoals and an ebb-tidal delta facing the North Sea. The behaviour of non-cohesive (sand) and cohesive (mud) sediment particles in the area are (until now) generally studied using...

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...

Maasvlakte 2 is het project waarmee de haven van Rotterdam wordt uitgebreid. Het sluit direct aan op de huidige Maasvlakte. De havenbekkens van beide Maasvlaktes worden verbonden door de Yangtzehaven in westelijke richting door te steken naar Maasvlakte 2. De doorsteek bestaat uit een voorfase waarin een kanaal wordt gegraven ten behoeve van de...

An offshore terminal is proposed to be constructed adjacent to the entrance of an Estuary in the Niger Delta. A dredged approach channel of around 10 km long, 250 m wide and to a depth of -14 m LAT is required to allow ships to reach the terminal. From earlier research it is found that high transport rates of fine sediment, in the order of 10...

The area of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. A large part of the city got flooded due to bad design, construction and maintenance of the levee system. In order to increase the level of protection of the city, the levees are heightened and strengthened in the framework of the Hurricane and Storm Damage and Risk Reduction...

In this study, a process-based, depth-averaged Delft3D hydrodynamic and morphologic model of the Wax Lake Delta in Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana was developed to simulate a five year period of delta development. The purpose of this modeling effort was to test the ability of process-based modeling tools to successfully simulate typical delta...

The response of longshore sediment transport to the morphodynamic state of the beach was assessed with the use of the process based numerical model, Delft 3D. For this purpose, idealized simulation bathymetries that reflect morphological characteristics of two different beach states (namely longshore bar and trough and transverse bar and rip)...

Since the completion of the Eastern Scheldt project in 1987, in the south-western part of The Netherlands, there has been a decrease of tidal volume, range and current in the Eastern Scheldt estuary. This has led to morphologic changes in the basin. The channels are in demand of sediment and as the Eastern Scheldt barrier itself blocks most of...

Ligthart, D. (author)
The Ayeyarwady River is a river with large hydrological variations and an abundance of relatively fine non-cohesive sediment, causing the dynamic behaviour of the river with fast shifting channels. This dynamic behaviour, together with the large hydrological variations, is the source of a frequently flooding river with a moderate navigability....

Historically, the coastal zone has always attracted people and across the globe the benefits of inlet systems have made communities settle there. The Tu Hien inlet and the Tam Giang–Cau Hai lagoon system in Vietnam are no exception, as approximately half a million people depend on it for their livelihood. Tidal inlets are also known for their...

Local geometrical perturbations in alluvial channels can generate a pattern of alternate bars. Each bar is accompanied by a pool at the other side of the channel. This pool can decrease the strength of the bank, which can result in bank failure and bars can hinder navigation. Furthermore, non-migrating alternate bars are considered to be a...

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...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

KEY POINTS:
• While the formation of the intertidal shoal Hinderplaat was a direct consequence of a human intervention, its degradation was a natural response of the system to frequent hydrodynamic forcing conditions.

• Tidal currents push the Hinderplaat in offshore direction, but this is counteracted by waves: these...

Process-based method forward stratigraphic modelling provides advantages in reservoir modelling by simulating the geological process mathematically, and the genesis of geologic formations over time (Michael et al., 2010). In spite of its advantages, Miller et al. (2008) have recognised significant challenges in process-based simulation models,...

By its very nature dredging is an environmental impact, since dredging includes the excavation and/or relocation of sediment in a river, sea or estuary. One of the environmental impacts related to dredging is increased suspended sediment concentration (SSC) levels, forming plumes of sediment. These so called dredge plumes originate from spillage...

After the storm surge of 1953, the Dutch Delta project was initiated in order to protect the southwestern part of The Netherlands. A storm surge barrier in front of the Oosterschelde and various dams at the back of the estuary were constructed. These interventions led to a large change of the hydrodynamics of the Oosterschelde: a large decrease...

The objective of this thesis is to investigate the role of different hydrodynamic and morphological factors influencing sediment transport patterns at the Sand Motor in order to give insight in processes controlling the short-term sand bar morphodynamics and the long term development of the Sand Motor. The work presents an analysis of the...

In large braided rivers, river training is often required to protect the banks against erosion, to improve navigability and for land reclamation. Closing one of the channels is a promising option to achieve these goals. However, there is a lack of systematic research on channel closures and no guidelines for their use exist. In the few...

In 2011 the Sand Motor was realised at the coast of the province of South-Holland as a pilot project combining different functions such as safety, recreation and nature development, following the philosophy of Building with Nature. The idea was to create a mega nourishment that would supply the coastal system between Hook of Holland and...
