The subject of the upcoming NCK theme day is 'Knowledge development for Coastal Management and Maintenance (Kustlijnzorg)'. Nourishments are an important strategy to preserve the Dutch coastline in a dynamic way. Deltares collaborates with Rijkswaterstaat to develop knowledge needed to carry out an effective nourishment strategy. This collaboration focusses on understanding the (large scale) coastal system behaviour, in order to explain local (erosion) phenomena and define adequate management solutions.
