Commentary: Dike Relocation from an Environmental Policy Perspective

van Staveren M.F. In: Hartmann T., Slavíková L., McCarthy S. (eds) - 23/08/2019 - All-Risk
The Elbe-Brandenburg biosphere reserve in Germany is a dike relocation project that became a nature-based solution. This commentary highlights the importance of a structured participation via a series of funded projects to keep relevant actors on board.

Contribution of Infragravity Waves to Run-up and Overwash in the Pertuis Breton Embayment (France)

Lashley, C. H., Bertin, X., Roelvink, D., and Arnaud, G. - 02/07/2019 - All-Risk
The analysis shows that gravity waves rapidly decrease across the embayment while infragravity (IG) waves are enhanced. These findings show that the contribution of IG waves to dune overwash along the bay is significant and highlight the need for any method or model to consider IG waves when applied to similar environments.
