The article focuses on the morphological development of the Wadden Sea barrier island system, with emphasis on West and East Frisian islands on several temporal and spatial scales. In addition, it integrates the insights for management purposes. Barrier island management is addressed with respect to morphology, sediment budgets, safety and...

We explore the use of quartz optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating for reconstructing coastal evolution on a time scale of decades to a few hundred years. Samples are taken from the accretionary south-west coast of Texel, a barrier island just offshore of the northern Netherlands. The ages of dune ridges are known from historical...

In this paper a description is given of a physically based theoretical ocean backscatter model (called the VIERS-1 model) for intermediate incidence angles, and a comparison of its performance against the CMOD4 empirical model is made. The VIERS-1 scatterometer algorithm is based on a two-scale composite surface model which includes both...

The VIERS-1 (Verification and Interpretation ERS-1) project has resulted in a new algorithm for the interpretation of the wind scatterometer, based on a physical model of air/sea/radar interaction in which the radar backscatter is calculated from wind and wave conditions. The model is inverted to obtain the wind from the radar backscatter. For...

Historical maps of southwest Texel and the adjacent ebb-tidal delta, supplemented with quartz OSL (Optically Stimulated Luminescence) ages of dune sand, span four centuries and show several links between coastal development and ebb-tidal-delta behavior. Updrift inlet migration governed recurved-spit formation, and changes in ebb-tidal-delta size...

Subsidence caused by extraction of hydrocarbons and solution salt mining is a sensitive issue in the Netherlands. An extensive legal, technical and organisational framework is in place to ensure a high probability that such subsidence will stay within predefined limits. The key question is: how much subsidence is acceptable and at which rate?...

Accurate measurement of fluctuations in temperature and humidity are needed for determination of the surface evaporation rate and the air-sea sensible heat flux using either the eddy correlation or inertial dissipation method for flux calculations. These measurements are difficult to make over the ocean, and are subject to large errors when...
