MORPHOLOGIC RESPONSE OF TIDAL BASINS TO CHANGES

W.D. Eysink

Abstract


This paper is part of a series of papers on a study of the Dutch Coast and describes the method used to determine the sand losses of the North Sea coast to the tidal basins of the Dutch Wadden Sea in the North and the estuaries in the South of The Netherlands. The sand losses can be caused by sea level rise, sand mining, closure works, natural land accretion in the basins or bottom subsidence due to gas extraction. The results of this study were relevant boundary conditions for the study on the behaviour of the North Sea coast in the vicinity of the tidal inlets (paper No. 9 of the Dutch Coast of Stive, Roelvink and De Vriend of these proceedings).
