“Green” Revetments
Work Package 6

Based on the sub-projects 1 to 5, an open access manual for green sea dikes and revetments at the German coast is prepared. The following main aspects are considered:

  • hydrological and morphodynamic aspects
  • dike ecosystem
  • planning and design
  • construction
  • monitoring
  • maintenance and repair

In close cooperation with the coastal autohorities, the recommendations are applied exemplarily to the three pilot sites Norddeich (Wadden Sea), Pelworm and Fischland-Darss-Zingst (Baltic Sea). Furthermore, differences between traditional and green dikes are identified.
