Water use has increased with double the rate of population growth in the twentieth century. Combined with changing diets due to increased global economic wealth, almost 50 per cent more food needs to be produced to meet demand, implying that fresh water availability will face even greater stress. At the same time, climate change is predicted to...

Sustainable land and water management in Myanmar are desired since the country is rapidly changing. An analysis of the discharge data and an estimation on the groundwater recharge are desired to obtain this. In this paper, the discharge data of seven gauge stations in the Irrawaddy river are analyzed. Also, a method is described to estimate the...

During World War II West Papua was the scene of war between the Axis and the Allies. In this case, it was the Japanese on one side Australian and US forces on the other. After the war a lot of equipment was left in the jungle and because of the low population density on the island some material can still be found to this day. Planes and vehicles...

In the present research, the activation parameterization method introduced by Nenes and Seinfeld (2003) was compared and evaluated to a remote sensing-based method by Rusli, Donovan & Russchenberg (2017) for determining the cloud drop number concentration. Both methods have fundamentally different approaches for indirectly determining the...

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is under increasing water stress. A rising water demand in the Kathmandu Valley is initiated by urbanisation with a rate of 4.7 % per year and amplified by a growing trend of per capita water consumption. At the same time, water availability seems to deteriorate. However, the severity of the problem is hardly...

This research focuses on using Sentinel-2 optical imagery to provide a means of high-resolution monitoring and evaluation of changes in Total Suspended Matter (TSM) concentration in the Brantas river basin. In situ spectral measurements as well as laboratory results show an extremely turbid nature of the Brantas River surface water. Current...

Mangroves are forest ecosystems growing in (sub)tropical saline coastal environments. With their unique root structure they serve as important natural coastal protection and provide habitats with excellent conditions for cultivating fish, shrimp and crab species. Despite all benefits mangrove forests are disappearing at alarming rates around the...

Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have increased unconventional oil and gas extraction from shale reserves in the U.S. in the last decade, making up more than half of total U.S. oil and gas production at present. This activity results in NOx emissions in the extraction regions that are measurable from space using the Ozone Monitoring...

Droughts are a serious threat to the planet. Especially in agriculture, the consequences are devastating leading to reduced yields or crop failure with further implications for economics, politics and society. Being able to monitor and predict agricultural droughts is an important step to reduce agricultural vulnerability and secure livelihoods....

This research evaluates the potential of thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing to determine and continuously monitor the horizontal water temperature distribution of inland surface water bodies. Usually, monitoring temporal and spatial variability of surface water temperature takes place by measurement networks of in-situ gauges, but these...

Methodology <br/>Agriculture is an important sector to provide in our needs. Since 2000, the arable land per farmer increased with 66%. To help farmers managing their increasing amount of arable land, it is important to develop new techniques in example based on remote sensing data. One of the key parameters for agricultural management is the...

This report proposes improvements of the land surface model (LSM) used in the turbulence-resolving Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy Simulation model (DALES). Important changes include the infiltration of precipitation, the parametrization of the soil hydraulic functions and the formulation of the soil water extraction by vegetation roots. The...

Whenever a piece of land is reclaimed for some reasons it becomes a polder. Polder areas by definition lie below the mean sea level and constitute special environments with respect to the prevailed wet conditions. In Netherlands, where the biggest part of the country is below the mean sea level, polders are common features of topography. Three...

Remote retrieval of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) over the Earth’s surface is a critical component of monitoring the surface processes of our planet. NDVI is a widely used and useful indicator of vegetation health and quantity ­ however its retrieval using satellite data is hindered by the frequent presence of clouds in the Earth...

As the elderly world population increases, caregivers are switching to remote care and monitoring solutions to enable their patients to live autonomously at home for as long as possible. Such services are based on detecting and recognizing Activities of Daily Living (ADL) by using diverse types of sensors at the elder's home that transmit...

Voor verkeerskundig onderzoek en verkeersbeheersing is het gewenst metingen te doen aan de verkeersafwikkeling. Bij de bestaande systemen, doorgaans inductielussen in het wegdek, bestaan de meetdata uit puntmetingen op een vaste wegdoorsnede. Met deze puntmeüngen is het niet goed mogehjk het gedrag van voertuigen in de tijd vast te leggen. Uit...

Chlorophyll (Chl) and Total Suspended Matter (TSM) are both important water quality parameters since they influence the amount of oxygen &amp; amount of light penetrating the water. Oxygen and light are vital in marine ecosystems. The Dutch governmental organisation, Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), has been monitoring the water quality of the Dutch part...

Nearly all major glaciers in Greenland have reduced in size over the last two decades. An increase in the amount of ice transported from the Greenland ice sheet to the oceans is predicted following an increase in Arctic air and ocean temperatures. One of the last glaciers with a floating ice shelf and draining a substantial area of the Greenland...

Eutrophication processes in coastal waters are becoming more prominent as a result of high nutrient discharges from intensive agriculture and increased urban waste. These processes can be devastating for local ecosystems and lead to dissolved oxygen depletion, which applies considerable stress on aquatic organisms. For ecosystems to preserve...
