Abstract:In the past couple of years, new coastal-dune research has sprung up in the Netherlands. In this paper, we give an overview of ongoing projects at Wageningen UR, Deltares, TU Delft and UTwente: how these are connected and what type of questions are addressed. There is an increasing demand for the understanding and prediction of coastal dune dynamics, both on the short (year) and long (100 years) term. We approach this from a variety of angles: scientific and applied, short-term and long-term, data-driven and model-based, biotic and abiotic, process-based and rule-based, and focused on components and integrated. We give examples of results and end with a discussion of the benefits of this integrated approach.
