Toelichting (Engels) The Dutch shoreface has a history with threats coming from the North Sea, such as storm events. In combination with an increasing danger from sea level rise it is of great importance to be able to protect the mainland against these threats. Shoreface nourishments have become a dominant type of measure to halt coastal erosion. The coastal area is monitored on an annual bases by using bathymetric data. The Dutch Department of Public Works collects and stores this data known as JARKUS data (‘JAaRlijkse KUStlodingen’ – annual soundings). Currently the monitoring focuses on the vertical dimension of a virtual coastline. In this research the horizontal dimension of the coastal area is subject of study. Especially the shoreface’s capability of protecting the mainland is evaluated by studying the shoreface’s morphology. We do so by introducting the term ‘critical shoreface contour line’. The study aims to define a critical shoreface contour line by contour analysis and an evaluation of the shoreface morphology before, during and after two major events in the central Holland coast’s history for which one can expect changes in morphology. In this study the implementation of the Dynamic Preservation policy and the application of ‘the Sand Motor’ along the central Holland coast near the Hague (Mulder & Tonnon, 2010) were chosen.
