Travel Demand with Forecasting Microsimulation
Transportation planners forecast travel demand using techniques that are based on dissagregate models estimated from cross-sectional data. Their forecasts are usually single future time...

Geology of the Southern North Sea Basin
The southern North Sea basin has had a long and complex geological history. Between Late Carboniferous and the end of Triassic times, the basin was largely confined between two ancient...

Morphology of the Southern North Sea Coast from Cape Blanc-Nez (F) to Den Helder (NL)
The southeastern North Sea coast of France, Belgium and the Netherlands (up to Den Helder) is characterized by coastal dunes, sandy beaches and a shallow, gently shoreface. In the Delta...

Long Term Water Level Observations and Variations
Numerous tide gouges have been recording data along the coastlines of the southern North Sea for more than a century, at Amsterdam even since 1700. Every tide gauge locality has its own...

The Ecosystem of the Wadden Sea
The Wadden Sea is a unique landscape and one of the last large and relatively undisturbed ecosystems in northwest Europe and therefore a wetland of international importance. At the same...

Development and Implementation of the Coastal Defence Policy for the Netherlands
In 1990 the Government and Parliament of the Netherlands have decided on a new national coastal defence policy. To ensure the enduring safety of the polders and the sustainable preservation...

The Protection of the Wadden Sea in an International Perspective: Planning, Protection, and Management of the Wadden Sea
This paper describes the state of the protection, conservation and management of the Wadden Sea by the three countries, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands in the framework of their joint...

Wetland Restoration in the Dutch Dune Area
Interference by man has affected the natural Dutch dune area seriously. The harmful effects of drinking water supply activities include low groundwater tables in the valleys, unnatural...

Development in Probabilistic Design of Flood Defenses in the Netherlands

Reliability and Uncertainty Analyses in Hydraulic Design
Prepared by the Subcommittee on Uncertainty and Reliability Analyses in Design of Hydraulic Structures of the Technical Committee on Probabilistic Approaches to Hydraulics of ASCE. ...

Ports '92
This is a collection of the technical papers presented at the Ports '92 Conference held in July 1992 in Seattle, Washington. Initiated in 1977, this Conference is the sixth...

Dutch Experience on Design of Dikes and Revetments
The increased demand for reliable design methods for protecting structures has resulted in The Netherlands in preparing a set of design guidelines for design of dikes and revetments. The...

Coastal Engineering Design Codes in the Netherlands
Dutch research strategy on water defences and the resulting coastal and hydraulic engineering design codes (technical documents) are briefly overviewed. Special attention is paid to organizational...

Pre-Selective Measurements for SHRP-NL Project Using the Lacroix Deflectograph

Design of Protective Dunes at Dam Neck, Virginia
Dunes act as a primary coastal defense against inundation in the Netherlands and the Dutch Government has devoted considerable effort towards development of reliable procedures for the...

Preliminary National Evaluations of CO2 Emission Controls
Under the aegis of the International Energy Agency, several countries have begun making comparable studies of the cost-effectiveness of various measures to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide...

Solving the High-Level (and Low-Level) Radioactive Waste Puzzle
Finding sites for both high-level and low-level radioactive wastes (LLRW and HLRW) has come to a virtual halt. The present system is based on a 'command-and-control'...

Coastal Zone Management in a Changing Morphological Environment: A Case-Study from the Netherlands
Between 1971 and 1986 three major estuaries in the Dutch Delta area were closed as part of the Delta-project. On the ebb-tidal delta complex of these estuaries (the so-called 'Voordelta')...
