Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference


The eastern Wadden Sea in the Netherlands is a highly complex area where many physical processes play a role in the evolution of wind waves. The area consists of barrier islands, tidal inlets, sand banks and deep channels often with steep slopes. In addition, astronomical and wind forcing generate spatial and temporal varying current and water levels. These complexities pose a challenge for the accurate determination of wave conditions along the water defenses protecting the low-lying parts of the Netherlands.
