Kees Nederhoff wins best paper student award
Published: 21 May 2015
Kees investigated the morphodynamics (erosion and sedimentation) near buildings using XBeach. He first considered the theoretical aspects and applied the model on a field case of New Jersey during Hurricane Sandy, where significant erosion and overwash occurred. His findings are relevant for the assessment of coastal safety against flooding in coastal towns all over the world.
His paper was based on his M.Sc. work at the TU Delft and Deltares on “Modelling the effects of hard structures on dune erosion and overwash”, which was supervised by Joost den Bieman, Marien Boers (both Deltares researchers) and Quirijn Lodder (Rijkswaterstaat).
