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')...

Coastal Maintenance—The Netherlands
The government of The Netherlands decided in the summer of 1990 to maintain the coastline at the position of 1990. This will be done mainly by artificial beach nourishment. The costs will...

Quantifying Mud Exchange Between the Eastern Scheldt Tidal Basin and the North Sea
Net transport of sediment < 53 μm through the mouth of the Eastern Scheldt has been quantified. Combination of data on spatial and temporal variability shows that incertainties...

Thoughts on Large Scale Coastal Behavior
Large scale coastal behaviour (LSCB) deals with the development of coastal profiles and sediment budgets of a large coastal stretch (order tens of km's) over a considerable...

Hatchie River and Schoharie Creek Bridge Failures
Within a 2-year period two large bridges collapsed into flooded rivers resulting in a total of 18 people plunging to their deaths. Both bridges had been inspected by probing, but had not...

Wegwijs—Amsterdam—A Dual Mode Routeguidance Plan

The Concept of the New Waterway Storm Surge Barrier: Reliability as an Integral Part of a Nation's Sea Water Defense System
In the southwest of the Netherlands a storm surge barrier is to be built in the waterway that gives access to the port of Rotterdam. Strict design conditions ensure that only very slight...

Design Considerations for Blast Containment Structures

Safety Against Inundation

Control of Bank Erosion in The Netherlands. State-of-the-art
In the Netherlands the protection against flooding and the effects of inland navigation have always been extremely important. Many problems related to these items, among them erosion and...

Rehabilitation Strategies for Urban Drainage Systems—A European Perspective
Rehabilitation of urban drainage system is needed in many old European cities. This is in part due to the required structural upgrading of the existing sewerage system. But rehabilitation...

Artificial Recharge and Water Supply in The Netherlands
In 1984 infiltration by surface spreading was 156 million m3, serving 15% of total supply of drinking water in the Netherlands. Already for some...

Quality Changes of River Rhine and Meuse Water Upon Basin Recharge in the Netherlands' Coastal Dunes: 30 Years of Experience
A wide spectrum of quality changes of river Rhine and Meuse water is presented, on a global scale after pre-treatment, dune infiltration and post-treatment. Attention is focussed on the...

Infiltration Wells in the Lakes Around the Future Markerwaard Polder
Drainage and reclamation of the Markerwaard polder in the Netherlands may cause damage to buildings and infrastructure in the eastern part of North-Holland because of subsidence. Drawdown...

Deepwell Infiltration in the North-Holland Dune Area
Deep well infiltration now generally is considered the cue for the future extensions of artificial ground water recharge in or outside the dunes. The Provincial Waterworks of North-Holland...
