Toelichting (Engels) This report presents the results of a research concerning long waves in the North Sea. ‘Long waves’ in this research is a collective name for various types of waves that are longer than the well-known sea-swell waves, here referred to as ‘short waves’. Wave types that are referred to as long waves are infragravity waves, meteo-tsunami’s, seiches and tides. Besides their extensive length, they distinguish themselves from regular sea-swell waves by the mechanisms responsible for their generation and the scale of their impact. Whereas short waves are generated by wind, long waves are generated by short wave-group forcing, the breaking of short waves nearshore and large atmospheric pressure variations. Long waves play a crucial role in the processes of coastline erosion and the breaching of flood defenses, as well as in the formation of rip currents and seiches. These events can lead to severe damage to hydraulic structures and possibly even casualties. A better understanding of them is thus vital for coastal safety.
