Sylt beach and shoreface nourishments (Germany)

On the island of Sylt (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany), LKN.SH maintains the coast by regularly applying beach and shoreface nourishments (35 km coastal stretch).

LKN.SH is looking for a long-term balance in the nourishments with respect to the expected sediment deficits in the Waddensea due to SLR.

This task concerns monitoring of the morphodynamic active areas, collecting and estimating data (hydrography, hydrology and biology), composing a morphodynamic model for the area, performing biological studies and providing/estimating optimal extraction sites for nourishment considering minimisation of ecological interferences.
