Netherlands Centre for Coastal Research
We 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.

The NCK-WA Waddenday that was supposed to be held in Fort Kijkduin in Den Helder on the 15th of May, will be postponed. We'll inform you via the NCK mailing list and this website when we have more certainty on when the event can take place. This may take a while.
The NCK Plastics Day has been rescheduled to the Friday the 18th of September.
On the 18th of September, the NCK community will gather 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 preliminary 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. Also, there is plenty of opportunity to network and discuss new collaborations during this theme day. The venue is the Museum voor Volkenkunde in Leiden. Registration is open!
