Science in the spotlight: Continental Shelf Research: The impact of channel deepening and dredging on estuarine sediment concentration
Many estuaries worldwide are becoming more urbanised with heavier traffic in the waterways, requiring continuous channel deepening and larger ports, and increasing suspended sediment concentration (SSC). An example of a heavily impacted estuary where SSC levels are rising is the Ems Estuary, located between the Netherlands and Germany. In order to provide larger and larger ships access to three...

4-day forecasts of Floating Material in Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro
On March 10, 2015, a large workshop took place in Palacio Guanabara, Rio de Janeiro, to unveil the Delft-FEWS - Delft3D operational system to help clean up Guanabara Bay from floating trash. This workshop, which attracted a crowd of about 150 people (state politicians, managers, academics, engineers, reporters, interested citizens) was co-organized by the State Government and by the Dutch...

Science in the spotlight: Geomorphology: Large-scale dam removal on the Elwha River, Washington, USA: Coastal geomorphic change
Two dams on the Elwha River, Washington State, USA trapped over 20 million m3 of mud, sand, and gravel since 1927, reducing downstream sediment fluxes and contributing to erosion of the river’s coastal delta. The removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams, initiated in September 2011, induced massive increases in river sediment supply and provided an unprecedented opportunity to examine the...
