Mediterranean sheltered beach morphodynamics in the face of climate change: modelling aproach
Erosion and inundation problems at many of the world’s coasts can worsen due to global warming. Beach nourishments are used as a nature-based mitigation strategy in sand-rich, wave-dominated coasts. A pioneer mega-nourishment called Zandmotor (ZM), with an initial extension of 1 km offshore and 3 km alongshore, was constructed at the SW-NE oriented Dutch Delfland coast in 2011 (Luijendijk et al., 2017). Mega-nourishments rely on the concept that they tend to diffuse and feed the adjacent beach...
