Ozone (O3) directly and indirectly affects human health (depending on the altitude it is sometimes referred to as “good” or “bad” ozone) and has an important role in the temperature structure of the atmosphere. Because of the impact of ozone on air quality and climate change, the objective of this thesis is to improve our understanding of the...

Jesus de Moraes, R. (author)
The exploitation of subsurface resources is, inevitably, surrounded by uncertainty. Limited knowledge on the economical, operational, and geological setting are just a few instances of sources of uncertainty. From the geological point of view, the currently available technology is not able to provide the description of the fluids and rock...

Goncalves Dias De Barros, E. (author)
Over the past decades, many technological advances have unlocked new opportunities to boost efficiency in the oil and gas industry (e.g., complex well drilling, injection of advanced chemicals, sophisticated instrumentation). The real engineering challenge is to apply these technologies in the best possible way for each particular case. This...

Garcia Triana, I.D.T.F. (author)
Currently, available models are not able to accurately predict the temporal evolution of coastal morphodynamic processes. The main reason for this, is that essential components governing this evolution are neither fully identified nor understood. Additionally, there is high uncertainty in some of the parameterizations and their input parameters....

Pelc, J.S. (author)
In the presence of environmental issues caused by climate change and eutrophication, ecosystem models capable of providing accurate predictions are of considerable interest. Even the most advanced ecological models are not capable of reproducing reality perfectly, therefore it is essential to integrate them with the available observations. Data...

Global energy use is increasing. As societies advance, they will continue to need energy to power residential and commercial buildings, in the industrial sector, for transportation and other vital services. To satisfy this rising demand, liquid, natural gas, coal, nuclear power and renewable fuel sources are extensively developed. Particularly...

Glegola, M.A. (author)
In this thesis the added value of gravity observations for hydrocarbon reservoir monitoring and characterization is investigated. Reservoir processes and reservoir types most suitable for gravimetric monitoring are identified. Major noise sources affecting time-lapse gravimetry are analyzed. The added value of gravity data for reservoir...

Kaleta, M.P. (author)
Since the world's energy demand increases every year, the oil & gas industry makes a continuous effort to improve fossil fuel recovery. Physics-based petroleum reservoir modeling and closed-loop model-based reservoir management concept can play an important role here. In this concept measured data are used to improve the geological model, while...

The technique of active microwave remote sensing has made much progress toward its high potential to monitor water storage changes in terrestrial surface and subsurface water bodies at various spatial and temporal scales. The number of studies demonstrating the support these data can offer in hydrological and hydraulic model building, model...

Van Velzen, N. (author)
The accuracy of dynamic simulation models can be increased by using observations in conjunction with a data assimilation or model calibration algorithm. However, implementing such algorithms usually increases the complexity of the model software significantly. By using concepts from object oriented programming, this thesis proposes a software...

Przybysz-Jarnut, J.K. (author)
The numerical simulation of hydrocarbon reservoir flow is necessarily an approximation of the flow in the real reservoir. The knowledge about the reservoir is limited and some of the processes occurring are either not taken into account or not described in an adequate way. The parameters influencing the flow are usually not known, except in a...

Rommelse, J.R. (author)
The research presented in this thesis aims at improving computer models that allow simulations of water, oil and gas flows in subsurface petroleum reservoirs. This is done by integrating, or assimilating, measurements into physics-bases models. In recent years petroleum technology has developed rapidly. Nowadays wells can be drilled to a depth...

Segers, A. (author)
The problem of air pollution around urbanized area across Europe is strongly related to ozone. Ozone is a result of photo-chemical oxidation, and therefore an indication of the presence of pollutants. Overexposure to ozone is harmful to the health, and the concentrations are therefore measured on a regular basis to check exceedance of air...
