Abstract


The Terschelling shoreface nourishment was studied over a period of about 2.5 years. The nourishment was originally designed to act as a feeder berm. Since its implementation, the nourishment has completely satisfied the design objectives. However, the nourishment only partly acts as a feeder berm and the actual success of the nourishment is also based on its breaker berm function. The creation of a wave shadow zone leads to an interception of part of the longshore drift and the development of a salient effect.
