    Literature study on PFAS precursors in sediments and surface water

    This literature review is a preliminary study that will be followed by experimental work regarding precursors present in (Dutch) sediments. First the occurrence of PFAS precursors in the Dutch surface water, sediments, SPM, and wastewater was summarized. Based on this information, scientific literature was reviewed on unknown PFAS in SPM and…

    Modelling of the Bovenrijn nourishment : comparison of two different transport layer approaches

    After centuries of river training in the Dutch Rhine, the river has developed to a waterway which conveys water downstream very efficiently. Moreover, the corridor Waal-Bovenrijn-Niederrhein has developed into a main shipping route between the port of Rotterdam to the German hinterland. Decades of monosectoral projects (e.g., focussing on flood…

    DCSM-FM 100m: a sixth-generation model for the NW European Shelf : 2022 release

    Upon request of Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), Deltares has developed a sixth-generation hydrodynamic model of the Northwest European Shelf: the Dutch Continental Shelf Model – Flexible Mesh (DCSM-FM). This model is the latest in a line of DCSM models developed by RWS and Deltares and a successor to the fifth-generation WAQUA model DCSMv6. Specifically,…

    Rapid assessment study on the Geul river basin : screening of flood reduction measures

    This document provides a summary of the rapid assessment study on the Geul river basin. In this study, an international team of researchers assessed the hydrological response of the basin to heavy rainfall during the summer 2021 event, the associated floodings and their consequences in order to find measures that are potentially suitable for the…

    KPP-VOW Parameters flow velocities on dike slopes : analysis of influence factors on wave run-up and overtopping flow velocities

    Run-up flow velocities and overtopping flow velocities are influenced by the geometry and the roughness of the dike. A literature study on the influence factors for the flow velocities on the outer slope, the crest and the inner slope is performed to determine whether the influence factors can be included in a stochastic manner in failure…

    TKI PRISMA II : Overview report

    This report provides an overview of all activities carried out within project TKI Prisma 2. PRISMA stands for “PRogramma Innovatief Sediment MAnagement". Its aim is to reduce maintenance dredging costs and emissions (a.o. GHG emissions). Within TKI Prisma 2 research has been carried out in three work packages: 1. Water Injection Dredging (WID)…

    Gel barriers in the Port of Rotterdam : analysis of the hydrodynamics, sediment transport and stability

    This report describes the results of Phase 2 of the TKI feasibility study on the application of gel barriers in ports to control sediment transport and sedimentation. Dredging efforts in the Port of Rotterdam are associated with high yearly costs and emissions. Gel barriers are biodegradable obstacles which could be placed on the bottom of a port…

    OSPAR COMP4 thresholds for nutrients and chlorophyll : consequences for the Netherlands

    In the preparation of the 4th assessment of the eutrophication status of the North East Atlantic by OSPAR, several changes in the assessment methods were made. Rijkswaterstaat asked Deltares to give insight in potential consequences of the assessment for the Netherlands. This report presents an analysis of riverine nutrient loads in relation to…

    Olivine weathering in field trials : effect of natural environmental conditions on mineral dissolution and the potential toxicity of nickel

    One of the most common silicate minerals on earth is olivine, which has been a natural regulator for atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations for millions of years. In the presence of water, CO2 is chemically converted to calcareous products. In past years, the possibility of olivine applications to acquire negative emissions of CO2 has received…

    Influence of water depth on the wave height, wave run-up and front velocities

    This report researches the influence of shallow foreshores on the wave height, wave run-up height and velocities in the context of the COM. This research is part of the KPP (Kennis Primaire Processen / knowledge primary processes) VOW (Versterking Onderzoek Waterveiligheid / strengthening flood safety research) project. Within the KPP-VOW project…

    Clogging in high temperature storage wells : modeling the effect of high temperature

    For the extraction and infiltration of hot water in the groundwater system, the control of well clogging is also important. This WarmingUP sub-study addresses the question whether the risk of clogging is larger or smaller for HTO wells at higher temperatures, whether clogging occurs to the same extent or whether additional requirements must be…
