Low-lying countries, such as the Netherlands, are strongly dependent on good and safe sea defences. In the past, the design of dikes and revetments was mostly based on vague experience, rather than on general valid calculation methods. The demand for reliable design methods for protective structures has, in the Netherlands, resulted in increased research in this field. These contributions have been prepared by Dutch experts participating in the study groups of the Technical Advisory Committee on Water Defences. The book opens with an outline of general strategy and methodology on sea defences, illustrated in the following chapters by technical information on specific items and Dutch experience, and it ends with more general aspects such as probabilistic approach, integral (multifunctional) design, management & safety assessment. Together, these chapters provide an almost complete technical overview of the items needed for the design and maintenance of dikes and revetments. The enclosed CRESS-program allows for an initial estimation of hydraulic loads and preliminary design.

A review of pertinent research, suggests that dikes and revetments have short-term and long-term effects on major riverine ecosystems. Short-term effects may be beneficial and include increases in aquatic habitat diversity physical stability which, in turn, results in high densities and diversities of fish and macroinvertebrates within the main stem of the river. Dike fields are intermediate physically, chemically, and biologically to the main channel and backwaters of rivers. Dike fields often support the most diverse fish and macroinvertebrate community of any habitat within the river. But community composition is less stable than backwaters and is dependent upon river stage and water velocity. Moderate and slow-water areas within dike fields provide important spawning and nursery areas for many lotic species of fish within the modified river. Revetments of broken rock stabilize banks and provide additional hard substrate for colonization by dense populations of invertebrates. Interstitial spaces between rocks may provide areas of moderate flow for juvenile and forage fish. Long-term effects of river training structures may be detrimental to the biotic integrity of the river.
