Netherlands Centre for Coastal Research
On Thursday, the 11th of January a NCK symposium entitled 'Impact of bed sediment composition on the environment' will be organised in the Art-Centre in Delft. The symposium will focus on the bed composition of the Dutch coast and the relevant abiotic and biotic processes in general. Two keynotes, by Steven Degraer (University of Ghent) and Maarten Kleinhans (University of Utrecht) will set the scene and several reseachers and PhD-students will share their insight and latest findings. The preliminary programme is now available on the event page. View it and register now!
The first NCK symposium of 2018 will be held on Thursday the 11th of January and will focus on the latest insights in sediment sorting processes. We will inform you when the programme is available. Save the date!

We are organising a NCK theme day on meganourishments and dunes in The Hague on the 17th of November. The morning session is reserved for presentations and discussion about 3 large projects at the Holland dune coast: Spanjaards Duin, Sand Motor and Hondsbossche and Pettemer Sea Defense. In the afternoon we will visit 2 of the projects to explore their natural beauty. You can't register for this event anymore as the maximum number of participants has been reached.
XBeach, the open-source nearshore morphodynamic software, developed by IHE Delft, Deltares and TU Delft, was presented for the first time 10 years ago. This anniversary is celebrated with a free user conference on XBeach model development and application on the world’s coasts (as well as on morphodynamic modelling in general) during the Delft Software Days at Deltares in Delft from Wednesday 1 November – Friday 3 November.
