THYBORØN HARBOUR – STUDY OF WAVE AGITATION AND SEDIMENTATION

Sanne Niemann, Peter Sloth, Jørgen Buhl, Rolf Deigaard, Ida Brøker

Abstract


Thyborøn Harbour, one of Denmark’s busiest fishing ports, has during the recent years experienced increasing challenges by high waves and by sedimentation in the approach to and at the harbour. The causes for these phenomena were far from obvious, and an extensive study was initiated to identify the causes and find possible solutions. The methodology and the results are described in this paper.
