On the 18th of September at 13.30h, the NCK community will gather online to discuss the 'hot topic' of plastic pollution. We aim to give a broad overview of the topic, as is reflected by the presentations in the program. We will exchange knowledge on the transport processes of plastics in rivers, seas and oceans and the link of plastic pollution in sediment and living organisms. Join this webinar via

Pre-announcement of an NCK webinar in the afternoon of October 27th on “Rising sea level in estuaries; impact on tide and morphology”. We are currently working on the programme, and will inform you soon.

sprintsessieWe would like to invite you to explore the full data set of our Ameland field campaign that was carried out in the Kustgenese2.0/SEAWAD project during an online sprint session on Thursday 9th of July, 15:00 - 17:00hrs.

This project is a collaboration of Rijkswaterstaat, Deltares, TU Delft, University of Twente and Utrecht University. In 2017, these institutes organized a large-scale field campaign on the Ameland ebb-tidal delta in the North of the Netherlands, during which we measured waves, currents, benthos, bed composition and many other things across the entire delta. In October 2019, the entire data set became publicly available, so everyone can now freely use it. In this sprint session, we will give a more detailed overview of what we measured and how the data can be downloaded and analyzed. We will do this with some practical tutorials, so if you want to join, please make sure your own laptop has either Matlab or Python running on it.

We kindly request you to register for this online event here.
