Toelichting (Engels) The future coastal safety of the Netherlands - considering scenarios of relative sea level rise - requires a re-assessment of our current coastal maintenance. The current strategy of: ’Soft where possible, hard if needed’, might not be maintainable in the future. Research program KustGenese 2.0 covers the study on how the Dutch coast can be maintained after 2020. A horseshoe shaped pilot nourishment of 5 Mm3 on the outer delta of Ameland, at the edge of the Kofmansplaat, is created from March 2018 till February 2019. The objective is to create knowledge on ebb tidal delta behaviour and the applicability of new nourishment strategies. A large measurement campaign is set-up, of which the half yearly vaklodingen and 4-6 weekly surveys of the nourishment area give new insights into morphodynamic behaviour on the ebb delta. This thesis covers a research to the sediment transport during the execution of this new type of ’system’ nourishment. The knowledge of the dredging contractor Van den Herik, the client Rijkswaterstaat and research institute Deltares are combined to gain the best insight into the morphological development of the nourishment. This thesis is meant to forma basis for future research on the pilot nourishment and add to the ’body of knowledge’ of the ebb tidal delta in general.
