    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Research objective Investigation of the relation between foredune erosion/accretion in relation to storminess, aeolian transport potential and beach width. Type of research The research is a statistical analysis of a long time series of beach profiles. Six sections of the Dutch coast are considered:Noord-Holland, Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland, Schiermonnikoog. Method of data collection Original data were obtained from other producers: see "calculated from" links. Relevant parameters were derived from these datasets using simple algorithms. • From yearly beach profile: beach width, dune volume • From hourly sea level data: maximum sea level between profile measurements • From hourly wind data: yearly transport potential for each site, with 4 different upper limits on wind velocity. Derived data are that were used in this study are provided in separate files: • yearly values of beach width and dune volume for all profiles • yearly maximum sea level between profile measurements • yearly transport potential for each site
