THE INFLUENCE OF SHORE PROTECTION WORKS ON GULLIES

T. Groot

Abstract


When studying charts showing the bottom-topography of estuaries in the South-West of Holland, it is striking that in the longitudinal development of gullies local depths occur, which are much greater than the average depth. From a closer consideration it appears that the deepest points are always situated near protective works against erosion of the shore. The connection between the shore protection works and the deep scourholes and its influence on the gully-system will be dealt with in this paper.
