The Impact Of Large-Scale Nourishments On Nearshore Hydrodynamics

Max Radermacher

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientific


From a physical perspective, the Sand Motor is a large, protruding body of sand along the Delfland coast. Modifying the coast on a kilometer-scale inherently has an effect on coastal hydrodynamics, which involve currents and surface waves. These will behave differently due to the presence of the Sand Motor. In turn, the modified nearshore hydrodynamics will influence the morphological development of the Sand Motor.
