Cover Story (view full-size image): The “Sand Engine” mega feeder nourishment, which is installed in the Netherlands, consists of 20 Mm³ sediment in the shape of a sandy peninsula with an initial size of 2.2 by 1.2 km. Natural processes, such as wind and waves, spread sediments from the initial peninsula further along the coast. In the first five years after construction (2011–2016), over 4 Mm³ of sand were redistributed, feeding adjacent coastal sections with sediment. As a result of the spreading of these large volumes of sediments, the peninsula’s shape changed dramatically during these five years. The top photo shows the situation just after construction in August 2011; the bottom photo was taken in February 2016. View this paper.
