PREDICTION OF COASTLINE EVOLUTION FOR THE HOLLAND COAST

M.J. Dijkman, W.T. Bakker, J.H. de Vroeg

Abstract


The Coastal Defence Study, as executed in the Netherlands, involved a 100-year prediction for the coastline evolution of specific parts of the Holland coast. In order to create this prediction a mathematical two-line model was used. In this model the effects of wave driven as well as tidal transports are incorporated, also cross-shore transport is implemented. The model is calibrated using sand balances, derived from measurements of coastal profiles. Qualitatively correspondence is reached, but quantitative differences between model and nature remain.
