Dr. Stefan Aarninkhof & Dr. Han Winterwerp (TU Delft). Abstract: Highly-developed, densely populated shorelines are facing the increasing risk of climate-induced accelerated sea level rise. Large-scale sand nourishments, such as the Dutch Sand Engine project, are increasingly deployed as a sustainable measure for climate adaptation. The sand nourishments reinforce the shoreline in a natural way, thus increasing the safety of the hinterland against flooding. But at the same time, the seaward extension of the shoreline offers unprecedented opportunities for other services like nature development, recreation, housing and drinking water supply. Being very flexible in the amount and pace of sediment supply, the method easily allows for adaptation to uncertainties in future sea level rise.
