His MSc-Thesis was focused on the interaction between aeolian and marine sediment transport at the Hondsbossche Dunes. We are happy to have him in our team. Welcome aboard Tom!
Full 2D wave spectrum modelling is available in HARES. All local wave directions and frequencies are taken into account by means of 2D wave spectra. Incoming wave energy can be distinguished from reflected wave energy. HARES is a two-dimensional numerical model for the determination of short wave propagation in near-shore domains, e.g. harbour basins. The […]
On 22 May 2019 the Joint Industry Project WINDLASS has started in Wageningen. The project runs for 3 years and will focus on the improvement of the existing knowledge on wind loads on (large) vessels by doing wind measurements in ports and developing software to calculate the wind loads. The number of participants is about […]

NOAA wave forecast (from Saturday 13 October 2018) of Hurricane Leslie approaching the Portuguese coast. Leslie made landfall on Sunday morning causing wave heights up to 8 meters. The animation shows the forecasted wave field as it propagates towards the coast. The highest waves are indicated in red. In need of accurate free wave forecasts […]
Off the coast of The Hague, just outside the harbor of Scheveningen, a very advanced test area of 10 x 10 nautical miles is set up. In this area scientists, governments, companies and other organisations can perform all kinds of research and test technological innovations. In this test area on the North Sea, companies from […]
